Doggy Boot Camp is a two week or a four-week, intense professional dog training and boarding program—followed by a series of handler sessions—that is the perfect option for people who have little time to devote to training a dog or those who are going on vacation and want their dog trained when they return (in other words, the ultimate dog boarding experience!) With Boarding and Training, Felix takes your furry family member into his home for an intensive, two week or four-week complete dog behavior overhaul. 

The process…

While your dog is boarded at Felix’s home, he or she is trained two to three times daily: in the home, outside, near shopping centers, and around other dogs, squirrels, people, cars, etc. In other words, we introduce your dog to as many different circumstances as possible; between dog training sessions, your pet will have playtime, snacks, walks, and oodles of affection. 

At the end of the dog training and boarding period, Felix will give you the first handler lesson when he drops off your dog. At this time, you will schedule a series of handler sessions (again, of a duration and frequency that suits your needs), during which Felix will come to your house and teach you how to work with your dog. Grand Island dog training insists on these follow-up sessions to make the pet training long lasting and effective—as we always say, dog training is less about teaching your dog and more about teaching you how to handle him. 


To take part in our Boarding and Training program, your dog must meet the following criteria, have: 


• Parvovirus

• Distemper

• Parainfluenza

• Bordetella (kennel cough)


• Monthly flea preventative

• Monthly tick preventative
