Teen Camp: Building the Foundation
For pups from 8 - 18 months

Puppy napping after a hard morning's work.

AH, THE TEEN STAGE... Adolescent dogs are often at the stage where their exuberant nature exceeds their mental focus with various dire consequences. Depending on how much puppy foundation training they had or their size, it can suddenly seem as if what was one cute puppy has become it’s very own pack of dogs in one body. The amount of damage that one adolescent can cause in a short period of time is truly astounding. Most of the time this is without any evil intent on their part, but nonetheless, the results are the same. Jumping, digging, chewing, added to age, persistence, increased mental focus, size and strength can result in a household where your beloved puppy is just no fun any more. You love him and want to kill him in equal measure..... Teen Camp is the perfect dog training solution.

Or, you may have done a fair amount of puppy foundation but now want to kick it up a notch and have a dog you can really take places, or travel with, and maintain the higher, more precision level of obedience needed for those tasks, including being able to work and play with your dog offleash. Again Teen Camp is adog training program designed to really build adult focus, responsiveness, and reliability to command under a wide variety of circumstances. Focus on work under distraction is key, and once they have mastered the basics, teens spend a lot of time working out in public, on crowded sidewalks, in all sorts of different buildings: hardware stores, feed stores, the vet’s office, hotels, and off leash here at the ranch and depending on progress up on the trails.

All of the dog training programs at The Arizona Doggy Dude Ranch contain the core nine pieces:

  • Household manners
  • Handling manners
  • Building balanced, confident behavior with humans and dogs
  • Novice level obedience commands
  • Full offleash reliability
  • Leash manners
  • Distraction training in public
  • Management plan to meet your individual needs
  • Nutrition counseling

All of the dog training programs at Arizona Doggy Dude Ranch also include a day and a half dog owner training at the end of the program AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE and a lifetime guarantee of availability to answer questions and troubleshoot scenarios to insure that what your dog has learned goes home with you and doesn’t just stay here at the ranch! I want everything your dog has mastered here at the ranch to transfer to your home setting. We are known nationwide for our pioneering owner transfer training, and thoroughly enjoy our time building that connection between you and your dog.

hot-dogHi there -

Thought I'd send a quick pic and an update on Brody since he has hit his one year anniversary from "boot camp" already.



AngelsThe girls were so good in the car and also at the rest stop....

What a wonderful, exhilerating, educational, awe-inspiring experience we had with you.  You certainly exceeded our expectations with the girls.

Marc GoldbergMaryna has an amazing touch with both dogs and people. Rarely does one dog trainer ever permit another to work with his dogs. Dog trainers are very particular about how their pets are handled. Maryna has worked with my own dogs at my request.
Even though I have been training dogs for over 30 years, in just a few moments, Maryna taught my pets a few new tricks, calming them significantly and quickly. What pleased me most was how gentle and loving Maryna treats dogs. They respond to her very quickly with trust and love.



EmmaJust a note to let you know that Emma (and I !!) are doing very well....we walk every day and she does a great job in sitting and staying...and quite well at heeling....

I am sharing something with you that you may or may not be interested in, but I was so impressed yesterday at what I observed that I just couldn't sit on it.
My friend Maryna, who has been keeping my neck and back healthy for years, has a home full of her own very well-behaved dogs. I was always impressed that they never tried to jump on me and always responded so well when given commands. Mostly, if they were in the house they just looked up from their appointed resting places, and then ignored me.
