A painful hock would make him careful about how he stands up.

I think it makes things easier too. You know the area to focus on - training and behavioral reform.

If 'boot camp' means dropping him off for a couple weeks, I'd take a hard pass on that. I've heard what Laura mentioned.

Skip the boot camp and go for the one on one training. You would not believe how valuable that one on one time is. You will get training along with your dog. There will be a second set of eyes to see handling errors, advice on how to work your dog through situations, gain the confidence needed so your dog will look to you. Be ready for handling requirements to change as your dog's behavior changes.
