Experience our all-inclusive training camp to learn new off-leash skills, strengthen your bond, and experience canine water sports in a whole new way. Stay in a cabin with your dog, hike off-leash, swim and play at the expansive and gorgeous Camp Westmont. Optional training activities will be provided throughout each day to expand your dog's skills.
There will be evening wine and cheese social hours, s'mores, board games, and a special guest lecture from Penn Vet Working Dogs!
On Camp Westmont's 100-acre private lake, beginner and advanced water training will be offered, including, but not limited to: navigation, nautical nose work, retrieve work, tow work and aquagility. Use your dog's love of the water to create a whole new world of training games to exercise his mind and body!
On land, camp training activities will include beginner and advanced agility and dog parkour to work your dog’s body and improve your teamwork. Scent work and tracking will open up a world of observation and intriguing problem-solving using your dog’s natural superpower. Off-leash recall work, heel and focus games will improve your general and competitive obedience skills. Tricks and Rally-FrEe will loosen up your mind and body with music and entertainment for dog and people alike.
To keep this camp personalized and focused on individual team training needs, we are accepting only 40 working teams.
Students will get the opportunity to sign up for classes they want to attend throughout the weekend. Monday will feature fun matches and run-throughs!
