Adolescent & Adult Dog Dayschool
Adolescent & Adult Dog Dayschool is for puppies that have graduated from B&B Puppy
School, confident puppies over 5 months old, and other social dogs (meaning they are able to
play in a group). Dogs will be trained in groups of no more than 5 dogs per trainer. Training in a group allows for
more socializing, working around distractions, and impulse control. The program is a-la-
carte,meaning you can start any time, you can come any weekday Monday - Friday, you can
do full or half days, and you can pay as you go or buy a package.
Please note that we require a 15 minute "Meet with a Trainer" appointment before you start. (For new clients only). See the procedure below.
What will my dog’s day look like?
Dogs will be paired in groups matched by temperament and/or size. Groups are not bigger
than 5 dogs per one trainer who will supervise play and interrupt when needed. During this
group play, they practice recall from play and training on leave it, sits, down, impulse control,
etc. in a group. Each dog will also get about 30 minute (half day) and 60 minute (full day) one-on-one training time with the trainer to work on specific challenges you tell us on drop off. If you would prefer more one-on-
one training time with a trainer, you can request that at extra cost. Each dog will also have
mandatory rest times with a kong (provided by us for free) or a chew brought from home.
My dog can play, but why should I choose this program over the program at Sunflower Road?
If your dog can play, you want to chose the program at the training Studio, because:
-They experience minimal time in the crate
-More time training in a group ( which is better for training because it adds distractions and works on impulse control, mimicking the real world)
If you are a new client wanting to enroll your dog in Dayschool, here are the three steps to take:
Set up your "Meet with a Trainer" appointment. You can expect it to last about 15-20 minutes. You may bring your dog, if you like, but that is optional. At the meeting we will make sure we have all the necessary information as well as talk about your training goals and answer any questions you may have.
Your dog attends an orientation day (at a reduced rate). Depending on your situation that can be a half or a full day. Your dog will not receive any “official” training sessions yet, however, we will assess how well he does in group, his stress levels at the facility and just generally get to know each other.
At the end of this first day, our trainer will let you know either at pick-up or through your “Pawgress Report”, whether your dog will be attending Dayschool at the Behavior Center on Sunflower or at the Training Studio on N. El Paso Street.
