• How do I get my dog involved in the pack? How do I schedule a training session?

    Just hit the LOG IN button on my home page, complete the sign up form, and follow the instructions in the email that you receive at that time.

  • What are  our requirements for each potential and current pack member?

    Each dog must be friendly with other dogs and humans,  spayed or neutered, up to date on shots including rabies, leptospirosis, and bordetella, and using a form of  flea and tick medication. 

  • What kind of training methods do you use? 

    We use "balanced" training methods, which means we both reinforce desired behavior with praise, affection, play time, food, or freedom, and discourage undesired behavior with the use of our energy, our voice, or  training tool such as a slip lead, long line, prong collar, or Ecollar. This method is effective because dogs thrive with the clear understanding of expectations and boundaries, and clear understanding of how to avoid punishment or receive a reward.

  • Do you have any special scheduling requirements?

    Each client is required by contract to schedule one camp outing per week at minimum. In some cases, we require that an individual must schedule multiple times a week for a dog in need of additional support.

  • Do you cancel services due to weather restrictions?

    All services will be cancelled at SLO DOG ADVENTURES discretion if thunder/lightning or heavy rainstorms are predicted during the time of a scheduled service, or if there is a heat or wind advisory during the time of  scheduled service.

  • What is your service area?
    San Luis Obispo, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach, Pismo Beach, Oceano, Shell Beach, Avila Beach.

     

    *For clients out of our service area, we invite you to visit our training center in Arroyo Grande for training sessions and day camp.

  • Do you have a wait list to join the pack?
    Currently, yes. Wait time is about 2-4 weeks. As each dogs' needs are different, we need to train and integrate each new dog into the pack in their own time to be successful. We utilize this wait time by scheduling a Consultation to evaluate your dog. We create a personalized training plan for you and your dog to work on as "homework", which sets them up for success when it's their turn to join the pack!

What if I need to cancel?

Cancellations must be made 24 hours before the time of a scheduled service, or the full amount of the service will be charged. If we are unable to access your dog at the agreed upon time of service, the full amount of service will be charged.

What makes SLO DOG ADVENTURES different than other trainers, dog day cares, and dog walking services?

We believe that every dog is different and deserves a catered training approach, and that every dog learns at a different pace. You will never hear us say that one technique works for every dog, or that we can "fix" your dogs unwanted behavior in X amount of time guaranteed. Instead we work with the dog and owner to create the training plan containing the structure,

boundaries, and new habits that fit the needs and capabilities of the individuals. Our day camp is set up to create calm and confident dogs who are challenged both mentally and physically. There are trainers guiding and teaching your dogs for the entire duration of their stay. Any nuisance behaviors found at day camp or during a pack walk such as barking, fixating, playing too rough or inappropriately, nipping, digging, pulling on leash, etc will be immediately addressed by our trainers to ensure that you get your dog back better than you left them.
