Science-Based Pet Care

Scout’s Honor specializes in canine enrichment. We are the only canine enrichment-based dog boarding, daycare, grooming & training facility in Bloomington, Indiana. 

 

Enrichment positively encourages behaviors dogs would do in the wild to satisfy their physical and mental needs. The purpose of enrichment is to avoid stress by giving dogs control over their environment.

Individual Enrichment Options

Individual enrichments are one-on-one activities with a Scout's Honor staff member included in Hybrid Camp & Solo Camp and available as add-ons to all camp programs. Individual enrichments may last for different durations depending on each dog's enjoyment of specific enrichment and/or their learning threshold. We use Fear Free & positive-reinforcement to reward good enrichment experiences.
