Private School

Our Private School, an alternative to traditional dog daycare, was created to be a place where dogs come to play while also providing a supplemental training program to assist you with your dog’s training.  Our trainers work with your dog to help them 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.  We offer two Private School programs; Puppy Building Blocks for puppies 8-20 weeks and Train & Play™ for dogs 5 months and older.

Private School Inquiry

Puppy Building Blocks

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.

Train & Play™

Our Train & Play™ program is an alternative model to a traditional dog daycare.  The purpose of our program is to provide your dog with phsycial and mental outlets through group play and training.  It helps 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 get access to training resources so you can learn along side your dog.  On average it takes 18-24 months to graduate from the Train & Play™ program. 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.
