Whether you have a pooch like the one above that tends to destroy your possessions or you have a dog with aggression issues or perhaps a generally disobedient mutt, our dog training camp in Tampa can resolve these problems and typically, it just takes a few weeks of training.


Dog Training Camp Versus Traditional Lessons

At Tip Top K9, we offer in-home dog training classes in Tampa, group classes and doggy boot camp in Tampa. In-home classes are the traditional approach where a trainer comes to you and trains your dog as well as providing you with the tools you need to reinforce desired behavior. This option tends to be the most common and it’s a good fit for many dogs.


However, with dogs that display more severe behavior, such as aggression, dog boot camp in Tampa is the best option. With boot camp, a dog lives 24/7 with a professional dog trainer for two to four weeks, around the clock. This allows us to provide consistent, immersive training throughout the day.


With in-home lessons, the trainer might be there for an hour or more once every week and while dog parents also can reinforce skills, the in-home approach won’t be as immersive as what we can provide with boot camp. For dogs with serious behavioral challenges, we can fix problems more quickly and with greater success when we place dogs with a trainer for several weeks.


Problems We Address

With dog boot camp in Tampa, we address the same issues we do with in-home lessons, but typically the dogs we see in camp have more severe issues. For instance, if you have a dog that occasionally showcases aggression toward other dogs, we can generally fix that with in-home lessons.


If you have a dog that consistently tries to attack and bite other animals and/or humans, this is an issue better suited to our dog training camp in Tampa with an aggressive dog trainer.


Aggression is the most common reason why clients book our dog training camp, but it’s certainly not the only issue we address. In addition to taming all types of aggressive behavior, we also focus on:


  • Obedience Skills – Your dog will sit, stay and come on command 100% of the time
  • Potty Training – We teach dogs of all ages (not just puppies) correct bathroom etiquette.
  • Anxiety Reduction – For dogs with severe anxiety, we do offer dog separation anxiety training in Tampa
  • Nuisance Behaviors – We will curb irritating and destructive behavior such as excessive barking, leash pulling, jumping and destroying furniture or other belongings.


Are There Other Dogs At Camp?

Our trainers, as you might expect, love dogs. This means that many of our trainers do have dogs of their own so your dog may be at camp with one or more dogs. This is a good thing because it allows us to provide controlled socialization experiences for your dog during boot camp.


How Much Is Dog Training Camp?

You might have noticed that we don’t post prices on our website. We don’t have standardized cost estimates because we do not provide standardized training. All of our trainers create custom training programs tailored to each specific dog we train.


Some dogs can be trained relatively quickly and easily, while others require many weeks of intensive training. Our first step is to schedule an initial lesson and evaluate your dog. Until we meet with your dog and assess your dog’s obedience level and behavioral issues, we cannot determine the cost of our services. This first session, however, is just $1 and there’s no obligation to continue training with Tip Top K9.


Our Success Stories

Through the years, we’ve worked with thousands of dogs and more than 130 breeds. Some of our successes include an aggressive mini poodle that attacked and injured several family members and was recommended to be euthanized as well as a 170-pound Great Dane that could literally drag his owners off their feet.


We’ve worked with dogs from fighting rings, dogs so anxious they were medicated multiple times each day and dogs that were considered “unadoptable” by multiple rescue groups. And, we have successfully trained these dogs, keeping them out of shelters and, in many cases, preventing euthanasia.


Whether your dog is exhibiting severe behavioral issues that pose a danger or you simply have a sweet dog that desperately needs to learn some manners, we can help. We are committed to transforming your dog’s behavior and we will work as long as it takes to achieve results.
