Private School

Our Private School was created as a supplemental training program to assist you with your dog’s training.  Our trainers work one on one with your dog to help your dog learn basic manners, appropriate social skills, impulse control, and more.  We want to make living with your dog easier and life with your dog more enjoyable.  Another large part of our training program is training YOU! So we’ve designed a program specially for you to attend with your dog.  This is where we provide coaching and training for you and your dog to grow as a team and learn how to communicate.  We offer a variety of programs to meet the needs of puppies, adolescent dogs, and adult dogs.

Puppy Programs

Our puppy programs are broken up into two different age groups to meet the needs of puppies in different developmental stages.

The goal of Puppy Building Blocks™ is to maximize your pup’s socialization and learning during the narrow window of socialization between the ages of 8 – 20 weeks. Between the ages of 8 weeks to 20 weeks puppies go through a critical developmental stage. It is during this stage, puppies form positive and negative associations with other dogs, people, and objects. This age is also critical for establishing boundaries with your puppy and laying the foundation for impulse control and obedience skills. Classes are kept small with no more than 6 puppies per class to ensure each puppy receives individual and group training.

  2. Skilled Trainers – passionate trainers who love their job and strive to continue learning
  3. Group Size – we keep our group sizes small to nurture higher quality play

The daily rate for our Puppy Building Blocks program is $65.00, tuition is billed on a weekly basis and is based on the number of days we are open for business.  Due to the structure of our program if a puppy is absent we can’t fill that spot for just one day so when a puppy is enrolled it’s important they attend for their scheduled days and billing is the same whether a puppy attends on their scheduled days or misses.

Daily Rate – $65.00
Multiple Dog Rate – $62.50

For 3 and 5 day enrollment it includes Friday FUNday.  For every Friday the billing price is $35.00

We have a loyalty program in place that provides clients with “vacation days”.  These are accrued over time.  For every 3 months your dog is enrolled in the program you receive one vacation day.  These vacation days can then be used when your dog is absent due to a scheduled vacation or for medical reasons.  When using vacation days the daily rate is deducted from that months tuition.  For example, if you had 2 vacation days to use you would let our receptionist know and she would then deduct $110 from that months bill.

The goal of our Training Assistance Program (TAP) is to “tap” into your dog’s potential through individualized training. TAP™ provides one-on-one sessions throughout the day along with three potty breaks that consist of training sessions where our focus is loose leash walking.  In this program we put into a place a personalized training plan that can assist with minor to moderate behavior problems, assist with slow integration into a group of dogs for the shy dog or over-aroused dog and help build a relationship and communication system as we begin to lay a foundation of training. This is a program for puppies and dogs 20 weeks and older.
