Puppy Day School
For puppies under 6 months 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?
Our puppy day school builds a solid foundation of good behavior and provides your puppy with
essential socialization to be a well rounded adult.
The curriculum was carefully built by our team of expert trainers with the unique needs of growing puppies in mind.
You want what's best for your puppy, but it's hard to balance training and 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.
Basic training foundations, socialization, field trips + private lessons
