Puppy Academy (ages 8 weeks to 4 months)
Our Puppy Academy focuses on socialization and also incorporates puppy training basics. Your puppy’s experience will include 3 sessions throughout the day in addition to regular potty breaks.
- Socialization with exposure to different situations, people and other dogs
- Intro to basic obedience including sit, down, recall, and loose leash walking
- Fun play times!
Puppy Academy runs Monday-Friday each week. The more your puppy can attend, the more they’ll benefit from consistent training and socialization opportunities. To be active in Puppy Academy we recommend 2 days a week (minimum of 1 day per week). We have a limit on the number of puppies we can take daily to ensure we have enough time with each puppy, so early reservations are a good idea. Your puppy’s human will receive dog training support in the form of our Puppy Packet handouts on the first four days and other handouts as needed.
Call us to discuss your individual goals and challenges and review the best options for you and your puppy.
Puppy Day Boarding (ages 8 weeks to 4 months)
Puppy Day Boarding is offered 7 days a week. Puppy Day Boarding places a heavy emphasis on socialization, desensitization, and exposure during your puppy’s critical learning period. In addition to regular potty breaks, your pup will spend three sessions with our pet care professionals. Ask us about our Puppy Day Boarding program!
