Our puppy programs set your new pup up for long-term success by providing both them and you with a foundation for a lifetime of skills building.
The first few months of your puppy’s life are the most important and when they will learn the most. In puppy preschool your pup will learn basic manners like bite inhibition, calming down, sit, and a lot more. Your puppy must be 12-18 weeks to begin and have their second set of boosters with bordetella. Classes are twice a week for four weeks. Set your puppy up for success with puppy preschool!
Once your pup graduates preschool they will be ready for puppy kindergarten. Where our focus will be on impulse control and basic manners. Your pup will learn polite greetings, place, recall, and so much more. Two field trips are included to challenge your puppy’s new skills. Puppies must be 12 weeks old to begin the class and have their second set of boosters with bordetella. Classes meet twice a week for five weeks.
Puppy Board and Train gives your puppy a more solid option for training, including sit, down, leash walking, place, recall, waiting for food, and waiting at thresholds. All puppies receive a ton of socialization time and group experiences while staying with us. Our 12-day Board and Train comes with a one-hour exit session with your family to transfer knowledge and skills.
Comprehensive skills ranging from basic obedience to life skills to align your dog’s behaviors with your lifestyle. Available as add-ons to daycare, private sessions, and board and trains.
Basic Skills is the perfect foundational skills class for your dog. This five-week program will focus on training your dog (7 months and up) on the confidence, socialization, and skills it will need to live a happy, successful life. This course is a great place to start with a new-to-you dog, rescue dogs, and dogs who may struggle or need to brush up on foundational skills. This course will cover socialization skills, confidence building, and basic obedience commands like sit, down, and so much more.
Our Life Skills Programs offer a progressive way to give your dog skills specific to your lifestyle. Life Skills 1 focuses on helping your dog be the ideal companion at home and on walks. Life Skills 2 gives your dog the obedience and confidence to join you around town at a brunch or off-leash in a park. Life Skills 3 is perfect if you want to bring your dog on trips and adventures.
Our Enrichment package focuses on providing additional mental stimulation at daycare for your dog so they can go home both mentally and physically tired. It is excellent for dogs who need some variety during their daycare days, dogs who have excess energy they need to burn off, or dogs who do better in a smaller, tailored group setting. Enrichment activities encourage your dog to use their nose, problem-solve, and can be self-soothing. We will introduce a wide variety of food and non-food enrichment activities that help make sure your pup gets all the mental exercise they need. You can add this package to your Doggy Daycare or Board and Train packages.
Skill Maintenance packages are practice on skills your dog has already learned. This package helps retain obedience and skills if you do not have enough time to reinforce training concepts at home. Choose one to three skills per package that we can work on with your dog in 30 minutes each session.

Our programs help reduce embarrassing behaviors so your dog can be their best selves with confidence and calmness, meaning you can have more peace at home and go on more adventures together!
