After payment is received, we will contact you with more information and to schedule your appointment.
Covid Year membership!
Membership allows you to create your own schedule to privately train your way through our training stations, and to join in any of our group classes until January 2021. You will always have the space you need to really let your dog romp and grow your understanding of behavior science, while building your dog's trust and confidence in YOU ! You'll get access to online training videos explaining how you can use our training stations to grow targeting, distance, directional cues and self-control around distractions. Got training questions? Jenny is happy to answer questions. Training in agility? Rally obedience? Freestyle? Scentwork? Every week you'll find new courses or track set up! Getting ready for a trial? Let us know and we'll set up run throughs at your competitive level!

East End Beach Social Situations!
We'll be meeting right beside East End Beach in Portland Maine for a social situations class! How does your dog respond around big distractions? These outdoor early morning practice sessions are free for Whole Dog Camp members, $25 for drop in, and $125 to join all the sessions we manage to squeeze in this summer. This will be 7 am, days booked according to interest, and weather! 5 maximum in each group, masks are required. Work at your own level (you might need to start by working out of your car in the parking lot) and take as much space as your dog needs! Prerequisite: head halter training.
Head Halters and Doorways: Using exciting dog situations to the human’s advantage!
The very bottom, bottom line of what you need to know to become the dog trainer you know you are meant to might not sound as glamorous as agility or freestyle, but it's what makes competing in dog sports possible! This semi-private class (up to three teams in a class) will show you how to handle your dog professionally, humanely, safely using classical and operant conditioning, training a head halter, and teaching your dog how to earn off-leash privileges. Monday and Tuesday afternoons by appointment. 5 sessions plus one make-up session.
