Puppy Prep School
Definitely not doggy daycare! Our puppy day training program is so much more and will be your pup’s favorite place away from home. We will provide exceptional care and training for your pup while you go about your day. In addition to the training your puppy will receive, they will also experience puppy playgroups, socialization, and various forms of enrichment. Amplify your puppy’s growth by enrolling today and reap the rewards of our program as your puppy grows up!
Your puppy will enjoy age, size, and temperament appropriate play groups under the watchful eyes of our trainers.
This is the best way for your puppy to gain valuable doggy social skills!
We maintain a puppy to staff ratio of 6:1
Transform your puppy’s mayhem to manners with high quality, positive reinforcement based training.
We will cover all things manners as well as grooming, nail trims, body handling, how to settle and relax on a mat, and in a crate.
While in our care your puppy will be exposed to all sorts of novel stimuli!
From uneven surfaces, to sounds like the vacuum and hair dryers, to kids, cats, and people in costumes we will work to make each experience a fun and pleasurable time in your puppy’s development.
Your puppy will be served all their meals in a food puzzle of some sort. This will include stuffable toys, interactive toys, and snuffle mats.
Your pup will also get to experience other fun, and enriching things such as ball pits, trick training, nose work, fitness equipment, and more!
A whole day of puppy training and play would be far too much for your puppy, so we will also have quiet time where puppies will work on their relaxing and napping abilities!
A dog that can relax wherever you are is a true blessing! It makes traveling with your pup so much more fun!
Puppy Day Training Benefits
We’ve got your back! You can work uninterrupted, take care of your kids, or even run your errands while the professionals train your puppy!
Learn Valuable Social Skills!
Our trainers will help your puppy gain appropriate social skills with other puppies – this doesn’t always come built in!
Socialization & Enrichment!
Did you know your puppy should see everything you want them to be exposed to as an adult by approximately 16 weeks? That means you have a lot of work to do in a short time considering most pups come home between 8-12 weeks old! We can help fast track your puppy by providing novel objects, sights, sounds, smells, and tactile experiences to help prepare them for their adult lives.
Build a Routine!
Dogs thrive with routines! We will get your puppy in a routine while they are here at school that you can adapt for life at home!
Being in school all day will provide us with lots of opportunities to reinforce good behavior! That means you will see your behaviors behavior improve dramatically!
