Puppy Day School

For puppies between 10 - 20 weeks of age at start of the program

Are you looking to start your puppy off on their best paw during their crucial first few months at home with you?

Our puppy day school builds a solid foundation of good behavior and provides your puppy with essential socialization. 
The curriculum was carefully built and is taught by our team of expert trainers.

Puppy School runs Monday through Thursday at our Perkasie Farm.  New classes start each week and run for 4 consecutive weeks (except for major holidays).
Each morning puppy preschoolers arrive each morning and start right away with some play and jump into individual and group training sessions.
Half day and Full day options are available based on your puppy’s needs and your schedule.

You want what’s best for your new puppy, but it’s hard to balance training & socialization along with your busy schedule. 

You didn’t get a puppy to become a dog trainer but we definitely became dog trainers to work with your puppy!  Our team are experts in proper puppy raising and are committed to helping families avoid common mistakes that lead to frustrations down the line. 

Your pup will learn all of their foundation behaviors while also receiving lots of safe, positive socialization  (no scary dog parks here!) and you’ll receive weekly videos to help you work with your puppy at home and keep their training on track.  Plus, you get 2 private lessons with one of our trainers. 

Puppies are a lot of work but with our team by your side, it makes puppyhood easier!  Each day your dog will return home in the afternoon or evening with the training and enrichment needs met so you can enjoy a calmer, more relaxed pup and reinforce their manners more easily. 

We recommend beginning the program as early as possible to take advantage of the critical window of socialization (up to 18 weeks).  The program is booked in 4 week increments but you can add more weeks (pending space) until your dog ages out.
