The Puppy Day School Program:
Your new puppy's best start in life!
What is it?
The Puppy Day School program combines novel experiences, foundation training skills, appropriate social time with other puppies, learning to relax around distractions, and day care all in one!
This program is staffed only by qualified professional dog trainers who are skilled at ensuring all puppies remain safe, grow into confident adolescents, and learn to LOVE training!
Each week, we focus on training skills such as: handler focus, coming when called, sit/down, stay, hand target, crate time, and ignoring distractions. Field trips to dog friendly locations to practice these training skills in the real world are included, too! Puppies will also practice mental stimulation games and use play equipment designed to build their confidence, body awareness, and desire to problem solve. Play groups stay between 2-3 puppies at a time so we can ensure each individual learns appropriate social skills and does not become magnetized to
