Dog Boarding Schools – Doggie Bootcamp


If you’re too busy to train your dog, why not let our trainers do it for you? Offering an effective alternative to weekly classes, our dog boot camp in Melbourne allows for a trainer to provide in-depth training as well as follow-up services.

At Eastern Companion Dog Training, we aim to eliminate behavioural problems and bad habits while your dog stays with us. Whether you’re going away on holiday or you simply lack the time to train your dog, our dog boarding school and boot camp enables us to drastically improve the behaviour of your four-legged friend.

As our dog trainers are fully trained experts who use up-to-date and gentle training methods, they can achieve results in a very short period of time. When your dog returns home after dog boarding and training, it should be able to understand the commands it has been taught. However, it’s important for the owner to continue training at home by walking and handling the dog regularly. Through this, you’ll be encouraging your dog to continue exhibiting the behaviours learnt through their boot camp dog training.


To provide additional support after our dog boarding school, our trainers offer owners the choice of one of the following:

  • One in-home private class two weeks after your dog has attended our dog boarding in Melbourne

This back-up support is included in the doggy boot camp price and is provided to help you maintain the training your dog receives. Some owners fail to continue the work our trainers put in, causing their dog to return to old behaviours and habits. Fortunately, our follow up dog training classes can help prevent this from occurring and contribute to the overall success of our dog boarding school program.


Our dog training boot camp program teaches dogs the following:

  • How to walk beside the owner on a loose lead (to heel)
  • How to sit on command
  • How to drop (lie down) on command
  • How to return to the owner on command
  • How to walk on a lead without pulling but being able to wander, sniff and toilet.

This training is conducted on a lead, but it shouldn’t take long for the dog to be able to respond to these commands while off lead if the owner continues with the training the dog has received while training with us.

In addition, our dog boarding Melbourne school can correct a variety of behavioural problems and bad habits, including jumping up and nipping, among others. We can also assist with serious behavioural problems such as dog-to-dog or dog-to-human aggression.


Our standard dog boarding in Melbourne costs $1490.00 and lasts for 12 days. This price includes all food and bedding, as well as pickup and delivery within Melbourne. Delivery also includes a full hand back session where our trainer will show you how your dog has been trained. This hand back is done in the comfort of your own home, enabling you to see how well-behaved your dog has become and showing you how to handle your dog to maintain training.


All dogs participating in our training and boarding school stay at Abba Boarding Kennels in Melbourne – one of Victoria’s leading boarding facilities. All kennels here are manned, and a vet is on call 24/7. Highlights include individual sheltered areas for each run, warm bedding, and two feedings per day for each dog. You can also arrange for extra play time sessions on top of your dog’s training sessions, while other specific requests are able to be accommodated – simply call us to discuss these beforehand. Finally, all dogs will be bathed before they are brought home from the dog training camp, with further dog grooming services optional.

If you wish to inspect the dog boarding accommodation before enrolling your dog, Abba Boarding Kennels can be visited at any time within business hours. You can also visit their website to learn more. Situated at 59-61 Ordish Rd, Dandenong South, the kennel is open 8am-5pm Monday to Friday and 8am-12pm on Saturday and Sunday.
