3) DOG OWNERS ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
How can the Dog Owner enhance their dogs experience at Dog Camp?
We want to help your dog live the happiest and fullest life possible and needs your help to accomplish their mission. Can you help them achieve their goal of providing your dog the best life possible? Can you help them give your dog the opportunity to be free, socialize with other dogs and just be a dog? If you said YES! then we would love to help your dog achieve that at Dog Camp. We can’t do this without You! We will give you tips and insights on basic training that will help your dog have a better experience and ensure they’re welcome at Camp.
Every dog goes through a learning process at Camp. This process is sometimes difficult for dogs because of different expecta- tions they have at home. For instance, we might ask that dogs remain calm before going out of the house and getting into the car. The dogs will learn that only calm behavior gets them out that door for a day of fun at Camp. By rewarding calm behavior we set them up to make more positive interactions with the other dogs in the car and on the trail. Dogs don’t like other dogs that don’t listen or have little self control. We may ask you to work on this skill at home. Help your dog make friends faster by following through with the training tips your we suggest.
What is the Dog Owners role and responsibility?
Dog Camp is a privilege for well behaved dogs. It’s a service dedicated to enhancing the lives of the dogs and not for intense behavior modification like people or dog aggression. It is also not a place for dogs with poor basic obedience like running off or dogs that are consumed by fear in stressful situations. Should your dog display signs of aggression or develop aggression, it’s the owners responsibility to pull the dog out of Dog Camp and consult a professional trainer so you can help your dog overcome the problem behaviors. We may also pull your dog out of Dog Camp until the behavior has been resolved. By allowing your dog to join a Dog Camp it’s your responsibility to keep your dog trained and social. This responsibility should not fall on Burlington Dog Camp as it risks your dogs life, the safety of the pack and the Dog Camp provider. It also puts our job in jeopardy.
Your dog is always your responsibility and having a well trained, socialized dog minimizes those risks when you give another person permission to take your dog. It is our job to limit those risks to the pack and the community but ultimately it is your dog and your responsibility should they cause harm to another person, dog or property. This is why we ask you to take our suggestions seriously because it is all for the love of dogs and giving them an amazing experience. We want your dog to be a part of this awesome experience but must do what’s best for the pack and the safety of the public.
By signing below you state that you understand these responsibilities to your dog, the public, the pack and to Burlington Dog Camp.
