MEET THE TRAINER

We are actively searching for a new head dog trainer at Bag of Bones Barkery at this time.

We wish our former head trainer, Janet Bukovec, much health and happiness as she temporarily relocates to India with her husband for his career.

Please bear with us as we search for a qualified replacement for Janet. Janet will be completing all courses currently in progress, but we will be unable to book anyone into new classes/courses until a replacement has been found and is ready to take on new clients.

If you'd like to be added to our "update list" and receive a call and/or email as new training information is available, please email us at info@bagofbonesbarkery.com, call (609) 528-0101 or stop by the store at any time.

TRAINING PHILOSOPHY

OUR OUTLOOK IS POSITIVE

In each of our classes, we utilize positive training methods that help dogs and their guardians together build a lifetime bond and increase confidence and trust to help ensure that learned behaviors are offered with fluidity.

While "positive training" isn't a scientific term, and you certainly won't find it outlined in any glitzy articles in national scientific journals, it remains a popular dog training methodology.

In a nutshell, there are four key ideas that guide our trainer during positive training sessions with your pets:

  • The use of "positive reinforcement."
  • Avoiding the use of intimidation, physical punishment or fear.
  • Comprehending the complex concept of "dominance."
  • A commitment to understanding the dog's experience from his/her point of view.

VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS FOR ENROLLMENT

Certain vaccinations are required for any dog to be permitted into a Bag of Bones Barkery training class, course or program.

FOR PUPPIES UP TO 16 WEEKS:

Must be up-to-date on parvo/distemper vaccines at the start of any class. In other words, you must show proof of your puppy's 'first round of vaccines.' On your vet records, parvo/distemper vaccinations are commonly abbreviated as DHPPV, DHPP, DA2PP or DA2PPV.

We do NOT require a rabies vaccination for puppies under 16 weeks of age.

FOR PUPPIES OVER 16 WEEKS & ALL ADULT DOGS:

Must be up-to-date on all parvo/distemper vaccines at the start of any class. On your vet records, parvo/distemper vaccinations are commonly abbreviated as DHPPV, DHPP, DA2PP or DA2PPV.

We DO require an up-to-date rabies vaccination for all dogs in this age bracket.

ALTERNATIVE & HOLISTIC APPROACHES

We understand that some pet guardians prefer to take a more holistic approach when it comes to vaccinations. In some instances, titer reports may be accepted in lieu of proof of vaccinations.

If you do not have current vaccination records for any reason, or if you have any questions regarding vaccination requirements in general, please contact Janet to discuss the options that may be available to you and your pet(s) in accordance with local regulatory and insurance guidelines.
