Dog Daycare Benefits Include:
Pick-up and drop-off service. We will pick up your dog at your house late morning, bring them to camp for the day and then drop them back off at your house in the afternoon. I offer a highly structured Dog Daycare that will result in positive behavioral changes at home.
I will help you train the dog you want to have. Either at your house or back here at the camp, choose a location that is best for you. I practice only force free positive reinforcement methods which support trust and relationship building.

Rather than struggle to get your dog into your tub or have to spend a half hour cleaning your bathroom after bathing your dog, come wash your dog in our 50" stainless steel grooming tub. Shampoo and fresh towel included in the $10 fee per dog. Hours are by appointment only.
On select Saturdays you can take your dog to our Dog Park and have fun while you watch your pup play with his furry friends. You can explore the trails, practice with the agility equipment or just stay and talk with other dog owners while your dog is lovin life at the camp.
As a Certified Training Partner (CTP) and recent graduate of the Professional Dog Trainer course from Karen Pryor Academy (KPA), I practice force-free positive reinforcement training methods which are scientifically proven to improve confidence, build relationship, and to learn behaviors faster and with less stress than other correction-based methods. Prior to moving to Roxbury in 2019, I was a teaching assistant for several professional dog trainers at the Port Chester Obedience Training Club in White Plains NY for several years. My current dogs have training and some have titles and certifications in the following: rally, therapy dog, tricks, obedience, and nose work.
In addition to being a nationally certified dog trainer, the American Kennel Club (AKC) has deemed me as a official Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator. As an AKC CGC Evaluator, Green Mountain Dog Camp may now administer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program, Canine Good Citizen (CGC), AKC Community Canine (the advanced level of CGC), Urban CGC, and Trick Dog tests. When you take a class and pass a test at GMDC, in addition to having a certified well-trained and well-behaved dog, you may be eligible for a discount on your homeowners insurance policy. Of course, being the owner of 2+ pit bulls, I had to shop around a bit to find a company that does not discriminate against certain breeds, but I definitely got a discount for my dogs being certified.
One of my goals of opening Green Mountain Dog Camp is to create a community of dog lovers and learners. I am a teacher by trade and I like to create highly effective learning environments where I act more as a facilitator of learning rather than an authority figure. We together have a wealth of information and experience that can be drawn upon and shared in hopes of benefiting us all. I strive to help people develop deep trusting relationships with their pets through well-designed meaningful training sessions.
The GMDC property includes an indoor training center and a 3/4-acre fenced in dog park and outdoor training area with an agility course.
