Ottawa Bark Camp

Ottawa Bark Camp is a summer dog training “boot camp” program designed to train both dogs and humans. Using group drills and positive reinforcement, work as a team with your dog to practice specific skills and behaviours while strengthening the dog’s focus and socialization skills in a real-world environment.

At the festival, we will be doing a demo of some our camps with participation of volunteers from the audience. Here are the camps we are covering at the festival:

  • Heel – Saturday & Sunday 10 am
    Heel is a controlled walk next to you. This camp covers all the important steps of Heel such as placement, adjusting speed, turning corners, passing distractions, stopping, and switching between Heel and a relaxed walk. Perfect for those busy Ottawa sidewalks!
  • Stay and Recall – Saturday 1:30 pm
    Perfect for Ottawa’s dog parks, this camp will cover the fundamentals of Recall (“Come Here”), allowing you to practice with distractions in a controlled environment. We’ll also cover Stay, a calm and controlled position that helps build your dog’s patience.
  • Take It/Leave It  – Sunday 1:30 pm
    One of the most important skills for a dog’s safety is knowing when to pick things up or when to leave them alone. This camp covers all the fundamentals of teaching your dog to understand your “permission”: when to Leave It, when to Take It, and when to Drop It. A great camp to help prepare your dog for the cottage!
Saturday & Sunday – 10am Heel, 1:30pm Stay and Recall (Sat), Take It/Leave It (Sun)
