Camping with our pets is one of the best ways to spend time with them while enjoying the outdoors. But let’s talk about this barking thing. As more and more people venture out camping today with their dogs, barking seems to be the #1 behavioral issue. Today we are joined by Lesley Shade from PupCamp and she’s going share some methods that will help.  

Lesley is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer committed to modern, ethical and evidence-supported dog training methods. Along with her husband, Dave, they professionally filmed their entire training program, PupCamp, to be able to reach families across the Country. She is a graduate of the Victoria Stilwell Academy for Dog Training and Behavior and Fear Free Certified. After spending her early career as a corporate paralegal in different industries like oil and gas and pharmaceuticals, she decided to make a change and dedicate her full-time attention to helping families and their dogs understand each other. Her favorite part of dog training is seeing that, “Aha! Moment” when it clicks for a pup! Obedience and foundational skills are just scratching the surface for Lesley! From canine fitness and conditioning to gun dog training and training service dogs for veterans, she continues to embrace everything dog! Lesley lives with her pups: Otis a Boxer, Sammy a Boxer/Lab mix and Sarge a Field Labrador puppy and her husband, Dave. Their favorite past time is to take out their travel trailer RV and travel to new locations as a family!
