The Sky is the Limit

The Sky’s the Limit

Starting April 1, 2010 Dog Works Training Centers and Denver Dog Works is launching a new service. Dog Works is offering its popular Camp Works training program to dog owners outside of the Denver area. We will be offering ground transportation in our four state service area: Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Utah in our climate controlled van. We are also proud to announce that we are in a location that is serviced by Pet Airways. We have had great success in the past with this “pet-only” airline and cannot praise them enough.

Ground Transportation

In our ground transportation service we will provide door to door service for pickup and delivery of your dog. The way it will work is; you schedule and reserve your Camp Works spot for your dog. We arrange a pick-up date and we keep him for three weeks where he will be trained in basic obedience, manners, leadership, trust and confidence building as well as socialization and short field trips. Then we bring him home and conduct our send home session with you where we will spend three or four hours going over with and teaching you everything that your dog has learned and how to handle your dog in a calm natural way that will give you the ability to be your dogs’ pack leader always.

Pet Airways

We have a link to Pet Airways on our website.  I encourage you to visit their website and learn about transportation for your pet.  In the past, we have received dogs for our Camp Works program on this company that is truly dedicated to your pet’s welfare.  We pick up your pet from the Pet Airways terminal and the training begins immediately.  Your dog is then returned to you in the same fashion.  The send home process then will include a step-by-step video of how to maintain your dogs training.  Pet Airways requires that your dog be sent with a health certificate from your veterinarian, his leash, collar, contact information, as well as a snack. Be sure to check out Pet Airway’s website for information on the travel experience for your pet. You can also download a podcast of an interview we conducted with the founder of PetAirways click here.

We require the same health certificate.  We also want to ensure that your dog receives the same food that he was eating at home, a fee for the food for your dogs stay will be assessed and we work with a local pet warehouse that you may be able to order your dog’s food from in advance as well. There is continued support once your dog is returned home, via emails and/or by video chat through Skype, iChat, AIM and others.

We never allow more than four dogs in our Camp Works program at any time.  This is why we have a waiting list and we encourage you to preplan your dog’s stay.  The ratio is kept at four to ensure the quality of training and allows us to be able to get to know your dog on a more personal level.  They are treated and trained as if they are our own dogs. Referrals are available on our lead trainer’s site:

If you have tried other training schools in your area and they cannot meet your needs at Dog Works Training Centers we can! What sets us apart from them is we provide quality consistent training in a public and a home setting.  Giving you a well rounded training package that has been proven and is effective. Our lead Camp Works trainer and developer Michele Forto, has an extensive background in training therapy and service dogs and she incorporates this style into her Camp Works packages. While you may think that sending your dog away to a training school hundreds or even thousands of miles away is not a good thing, think about the benefits….and become a fan on facebook and check the updates and photos of your dog regularly.  One more thing, we promise, your dog will remember you.  In fact, they will remember everything about you including what you let them get away with.

If you want to have one of the best trained dogs in the world, give Dog Works Training Centers a call at 303-578-9881.
