Your child and their dog are invited to join us for TCOTC’s summer camp--Cool Kids and Hot Dogs! During the four afternoons, we will be honing dog obedience skills and teaching fun tricks. Teams will also learn some Dog Sport basics like Disc & Agility, as well as some dog science, like how our dogs see colors and the power of their incredible noses. Guest speakers include dog professionals and dog sports enthusiasts. There will be take home crafts, journal writing, and a camp binder with handouts to practice the activities the rest of the summer.

Puppy Basic Training is a 7 week beginning obedience class for puppies aged 12 weeks to 10 months. Using positive reinforcement to reward the puppy for the behavior we want, we teach the skills of sit, down, loose leash walking, release, impulse control, come, going to a mat or place, body handling, and handler focus. Training questions will focus on the developing adolescent puppy rather than training an adult dog.
