Puppy and Dog Training Day School

Immersive Training Without Missing Your Dog

Feeling overwhelmed by training your dog but don’t want to be away from him for weeks?  Let us do the heavy lifting in our day school program and let you enjoy the cuddles. 

Day school has all the same perks of our board and train program but you don’t have to wait for a vacation or be away from your dog to get the benefits of professional training. 

Drop off your dog to our 6+ acre farm in Perkasie where they’ll receive a minimum of 5 personalized training sessions each day.  Pick them up tired and with better manners in the afternoon and in a couple of weeks, you’ll be well on your way to a happy, trained dog. 

How Day School works:

Our day school training camp is the only of its kind in Pennsylvania.  Your dog visits our 6+ acre farm Monday through Friday for a fun but intensive learning experience

Our team of certified dog trainers will work with your dog each day to teach important skills and manners focused on improving their behavior at home and in public. The dogs in our program receive the most one on one instruction of any board and train program out there with a minimum of 5 training sessions each day.  This means that they have more successful repetitions of good behavior creating more muscle memory and better transfer of good behaviors to the home environment. 

We start with drop offs between 8:00am and 9:30am.  Once your dog arrives, our team gets right to work on training sessions for your dog which run until about 4pm daily.  During this time your dog will receive 5+ training sessions that typically range from 10-20 minutes each.  At 4pm, we start pick up appointments for the day.  At pick up, we’ll spend a quick 5 min to recap your dogs day, let you know any important observations and then send you home with a tired dog.

Ready to get started?

The first step is a consultation with one of our trainers.  This scheduled call usually takes 15-20 minutes and is the best way for our trainers to learn more about your needs for your dog and to discuss the details of our programs to determine the best fit.

  • Leash manners (not pulling)
  • Settling in the house 
  • Basic obedience (sit, stay, down, come when called, etc.)
  • Reactivity on leash (not pulling to or barking at dogs or people)
  • Responsiveness around distractions

I have a German Shepherd puppy that was really hard for me to handle. Our first trainer got only so far and then we didn’t agree. I realized we needed someone new. I contacted the GSD Rescue and Mike and Jamie came highly recommended. My pup needed there away training (home on the weekends). The difference was instant and amazing. Mike is great and very personable. Rory just loves him. That’s the other thing - they respond to you quickly on any questions. They have all kinds of classes available. I just can’t say enough. This is the place for you. ❤️

We were seeking guidance in training our 4 year old corgi and were feeling very frustrated before getting in contact with Best Paw Forward. We had done puppy classes, adolescent classes and even expensive individual training with other trainers and programs and NONE even come close to the amount of guidance and help we received. My only regret with this training program is that we didn't find them sooner! I cannot recommend Best Paw Forward enough. They care about the quality of the service you experience, your pet, and your overall understanding of the training process. With other trainers after our last paid session was over we couldn't even get an email back about next steps. They truly are exceptional and it was a smart investment for our future with our dog.

We can’t thank Best Paw Forward enough. We sent our 1 year old Bernedoodle, Myko, to board and train and my goodness how things have changed in our house! We went from having an high energy and excitible dog who barked almost 24/7 to a dog who is happy, mentally stimulated, and calm. Their passion for dog training is so evident in everything they do. The lessons we learned from Best Paw Forward have truly brought so much more joy and less stress into our lives! We cannot recommend Best Paw Forward enough!!!

I had my puppy stay with Best Paw Forward for 3 weeks for the Board and Train program. It was so hard to leave her and I was worried what her behavior would be like when she came home. Since returning home, she is a completely different dog. She is calm, responds to commands, and is such a joy to be around. I am so pleased with the results of her training and thank Michael, Jamie, and Torri for taking such great care of my baby and training her to be the best she can be.

Interested in our day school program ?  Great!  The first step is a conversation with one of our trainers to determine if our stay and train program is a good fit for your dog.
