Doggy DaySchool is a type of structured daycare where we train your dog for you. We take only a limited number of students a day. We limit the size of doggie students to 35 pounds and under. Your dog’s day will be filled with Positive Reinforcement training, exercise, and socialization.
We DO NOT USE Electronic Collars for training!
Who can attend?
Dogs and Puppies over 12 weeks of age with 2 sets of vaccinations. All dogs must be 25 lbs or 13 inches and under. Our facility is not appropriate for larger dogs. All male dogs over the age of 5 months must be neutered.
We like to say we “teach them English”. So start your puppy early for best results learning “our language”.
How will my dog spend the day?
We like to tell people that we teach them “ English”. They will spend the day learning the english words for basic manners, obedience, and social skills, to tricks, nose work, and impulse control. They will learn new behaviors and sharpen old ones. There will also be plenty of time for socialization and potty breaks outside. Additionally we plan on several excursions about the neighborhood to practice some of the skills learned at DaySchool.
How do I know what you are teaching my dog? Can I practice at home?
We will take a history of your dog when you enroll. That gives us information about your dog so we have somewhere to start with our training. Each day we email you with some of the exercises and training we did that day, as well as any suggestions for what you can do at home.
Private transfer sessions can be scheduled for an additional fee. We suggest one after every 10 school days. We will be adding some video sessions up on our youtube.com page, for those of you with very busy schedules to use like a transfer session. You will be able to learn the how and why we teach the way we do and the words to use. A very handy way for you to learn how to do it too! What we teach will generalize easier if you can practice at home too.
We let you know when a new skill is suitable for practice at home. We will be working hard to proof your dog’s new skills and ensure the skills transfer to you. Transfer sessions help you to maintain your dogs new skills.
When Can we get started?
Right Away! We have several options for enrolling in DaySchool! For instance, for a small additional fee, you can “add on” one short training session to your regular daycare day and our trainer will pull your dog out of daycare for a nice little training session that will be between 15 and 20 min. long then put your dog back into daycare when she is finished.
How much does it cost?
The fee for Doggy DaySchool is $40 per day, when purchasing a DaySchool Passport and $45 per day for drop-ins. A DaySchool Add-On is an additional $15 added to a regular full day of daycare.
