Our Services - Dayschool


Puppies


Puppy Dayschool is designed for puppies 8 weeks to 5 months in age.  Puppy Dayschool sessions are Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8.30am to 4.30pm (drop off and pick up available from 6.30am to 6.00pm).  This schedule ensures that puppies have peers in dayschool for proper socialization. However, space is limited to 6 puppies each day. We recommend purchasing a Puppy Dayschool package (8 sessions) and booking twice a week for an entire month. 

To enroll your puppy in Puppy Dayschool, you’ll need to book a free 15 minute “meet and greet” at our facility.  You and your puppy will get a chance to see the puppy dayschool area, meet our trainers and kennel techs, discuss training goals for your puppy, and complete the registration process.

Your puppy's day will look like:

  • Socialization, socialization, socialization!  It is important for puppies at this age to be properly introduced not only to other dogs, but also people, sounds, textures, and objects.  Our trainers will present these novelties in a positive manner to build a puppy’s confidence and help prevent behavioral issues later in life.
  • Individualized training.  Puppies will work with our trainers on basics such as sit, down, wait, leave it, and loose leash walking.  Dayschool training follows the same curriculum as our Puppy-K class and prepares puppies for the Pet Dog Ambassador Level 1 assessment.
  • Additional life skills training.  Along with the basics described above, puppies will also receive crate training, potty training, mental enrichment games, and handling practice (for visits to the groomer or vet).
  • Rest.  Like young children, puppies need naps to break up their long days of learning and growing!  We ensure that puppies will receive plenty of rest and TLC from our trainers and kennel techs.
  • Pawgress Reports.  More for the owners than for the puppies.  At the end of every day, you will receive a “pawgress” report that includes a write-up from the trainer that worked with your puppy as well as pictures and videos of training and playtime.  This means you’ll get to see how much fun your puppy is having!


BONUS!  Included with every Puppy Dayschool package is a free 30 minute “transfer lesson”.  A trainer will teach you how to continue working on your puppy’s dayschool training at home.  Additionally, when you purchase a Puppy Dayschool package, you are eligible for a 20% discount on our Puppy-K class.  We highly recommend supplementing Puppy Dayschool with a Puppy-K class because you build a connection with your puppy as you go through training together.

Older Puppies and Adults


Adult Dayschool is for puppies and dogs over 5 months in age.  Adult Dayschool sessions are Monday through Friday from 8.30am to 4.30pm (drop offs and pick ups from 6.30am to 6.00pm).  Dayschool is booked on a first come, first serve basis. We recommend purchasing a Dayschool package (8 sessions) and reserving all of your days at once.

To enroll your dog in Adult Dayschool, you’ll need to book a free 15 minute “meet and greet” at our facility.  You and your dog will get a chance to see the dayschool area, meet our trainers and kennel techs, discuss training goals for your dog, and complete the registration process.  If your dog is having behavior issues beyond “needs to work on the basics”, please schedule a 30 minute assessment to make sure Dayschool is the right fit for your dog.

Your dog’s day will look like:

  • Individualized training. Based on the training goals you establish during your meet and greet, our trainers will work with your dog on things like sit, down, wait, leave it, off, and leash skills.  Dayschool training can focus on specific issues your dog is having or can follow our class curriculum and prepare your dog for various levels of the Pet Dog Ambassador program.
  • Socialization. Your dog will be matched based on size, age, and playstyle with other dogs in the dayschool program.  Under the supervision of a trainer or kennel tech, dogs will be allowed to play appropriately with each other and continue to gain valuable socialization experience.
  • Rest.  Puppies aren’t the only ones who get tired after a long day of training!  We ensure that dogs will have plenty of rest and TLC from our trainers and kennel techs.
  • Pawgress Reports. More for the owners than for the dogs.  At the end of every day, you will receive a “pawgress” report that includes a write-up from the trainer that worked with your dog as well as pictures and videos of training and playtime.  This means you’ll get to see how much fun your dog is having!


BONUS! Included with every Dayschool package is a free 30 minute “transfer lesson”.  A trainer will teach you how to continue working on your dog’s dayschool training at home.  Additionally, when you purchase a Dayschool package, you are eligible for a 20% discount on our Puppy-K2 or Good Dog class.  We highly recommend supplementing Dayschool with a class because you build a connection with your dog as you go through training together.
