Immersion Program

The Immersion Program is the crème de la crème of the behavior modification and dog training world. It’s what most would call a “boarding training program” or “doggie summer camp.” Dogs that exhibit social anxiety, dog/human aggression, fears and phobias, and other unwanted behaviors are all potential candidates. The immersion dog training program is the only one of its kind. Get your dog on his or her way to becoming happy and balanced.

Immersion Program

When enrolled in our Immersion Program, your dog is immersed into an already balanced pack to help change the way he or she sees the world. By understanding where they fall in the hierarchy of life, your dog will become more relaxed, balanced, well-behaved, and better able to deal with stressful situations. The program is set up to get you and your dog over the initial hump of training, and then we are able to provide you with the proper education as to how to maintain your new relationship and prevent future behavioral problems. Some behavioral issues can only be addressed with our Immersion Program. It is specifically designed for, but not limited to, dogs suffering from aggressive behaviors associated with fears, phobias, anxieties, etc. We call it the Immersion Program because your dog is immersed into our culture. Therefore, they are able to receive a successful rehabilitation, as they learn what it’s like to be a part of a naturally balanced pack. The Immersion Program is regulary coupled with our Home Consultations.

As the owner, you must be willing to have an open mind and make big changes in your behavior. In fact, we need the committment of everyone (two and four legged) in order to find success. People are 70% of the training process, and the dogs are 30%. The most important component of this program is the education of the human family. That being said, your family will need to attend private teaching lessons once a week when your dog is in the house. (If you are traveling, we will adjust these dates to meet your schedule). It is imperative that all family members attend so that everyone is on the same page and can become a great, working team. (Don’t be surprised to receive your own homework assignments!)

The immersion program lasts a minimum of 2 weeks for dogs under one year of age and 3 weeks for dogs over one year of age- the length of the program is based on the severity of behaviors exhibited by your dog. Your dog will stay at our rehabilitation center in Jefferson and receive one-on-one training with our professional team of trainers, as well as with Angie’s balanced pack of training dogs. As mentioned above, you will attend a lesson once a week with your family and anyone who frequently interacts with your pup. These lessons will provide you with all of the Dog Psychology you will need to maintain good behavior in your dog and prevent future issues from occurring.

While your dog is staying with us, we’ll post pictures of them on Facebook so you can see how they’re doing. Be sure to “like” our U.S. Canine page so you can check in and see who’s in the house!
