Interested in how to train your dog using a different philosophy? The BDB Shadow Program -- our specially designed, in-house dog training methodology and philosophy -- was originally created to give our clients a more in-depth view of how our methods are used daily with a pack of dogs. We’ve found that integrating our clients into our “day-to-day” creates a ton of light bulb moments for owners that we couldn’t otherwise create.
However, Brad is also constantly answering questions from dog professionals about our methodology and philosophy for dog training on both the dog behavior side and the marketing/business side. So, the program has since grown to include dog trainers, dog walkers, pet sitters, and boarding & daycare owners/employees.
The BDB Shadow Program provides intimate access to Brad, his team, and everything that’s made BDB one of the most successful and unique dog behavior companies in the country.
HALF DAY SHADOW
The Half-Day Shadow Program is a VIP service for clients whose dog(s) has already completed one of our Board & Train programs. Going further than the basics of our dog training methodology and philosophy this four-hour experience takes you “behind the curtain” and allows you to see how the BDB team calmly fulfills and works with a pack of 15-25 dogs (all with behavioral issues). The half-day program will include a large pack walk and socialization so you can experience the pack life.
FULL DAY SHADOW
The Full Day Shadow Program is a VIP service for clients whose dog(s) has already completed one of our Board & Train programs. This eight-hour experience takes you “behind the curtain” and allows you to see how the BDB team uses our dog training methodology and philosophy to work with a pack of 15-25 dogs (all with behavioral issues). The program will include a large pack walk, socialization, treadmill training, working hands-on with one of our training dogs, and a consultation (or follow-up/evaluation) so you can experience the full BDB daily life!
