Puppy Programs

Our puppy program is dedicated to puppies 8 weeks to 20 weeks and the focus is socialization, boundary setting, foundation training, impulse control, and acclimation.  Our focus is to help your puppy be the best they can be!

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.

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.

Multiple Dog Rate – $62.50

For 4 day enrollment the multiple dog rate is used for training days when calculating weekly tuition.

Adult Dog Programs

The intention of our Train & Play program or our Training Assistance Program (TAP) is to help your dog learn the manners and obedience you are looking for while simultaneously training you how to reinforce and maintain the behaviors being taught.  The program is designed to build on itself and best results occur when dogs go all the way through to GRADUATION.  While your dog will be getting training with us during the day, you will either have access to training classes that complement the training we are doing or you get private trainings to go over the details of your dog’s individual training program.  The benefits depend on the program enrolled.  On average it takes 18-24 months to graduate from the Train & Play program and 3-6 months to graduate from our Trainings Assistance Program.  Train & Play includes group play and social interactions while our Training Assistance Program only has one-on-one training with your dog.  Below are more details regarding both programs.

The goal of Train & Play™ is to create an environment to teach impulse control, appropriate social skills, basic obedience, and provide enrichment to the dogs. We strive to teach you and your dog the necessary skills to develop good house manners, engagement, and proper etiquette when in the community.

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.

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 $120 from that months bill.

For 4 day enrollment the multiple dog rate is used for training days when calculating monthly tuition.
