DOGGIE DAY CARE

Enjoy a well-behaved, obedient, friendly puppy or adult dog without having to attend classes or do all the work yourself!

This program is the perfect solution for young, energetic, not-yet-house trained puppies, or for adult dogs that need basic obedience skills or leash training.

Programs May be Customized for Your Dog’s Individual Needs

Training may include core obedience skills, such as leash walking, sit, down, wait, come, attention training, fetch, and greeting manners. We can also focus on puppy issues, such as mouthing, chewing, nipping, and house training. We can even teach your dog how to behave nicely in your home!

Dog day training is the perfect choice for young puppies or adult dogs that need better leash walking skills and home manners. However, this program is not appropriate for dogs that demonstrate signs of severe separation anxiety or aggression towards people or dogs. If your dog is exhibiting signs of separation anxiety, is fearful, or is growling, barking excessively, lunging, or snarling at others (on or off leash), please consider private in-home instruction.

If you are looking to have us board and train your puppy or adult dog, please consider our board and train program.

We Offer Four Separate Programs, All with Their Own Unique Focus:

All dog day training programs include an introductory consultation so that we can meet you and your dog, and find out specifically what you want us to focus on during our training sessions. We train your dog during the week, and at the end of each week, we meet with you to demonstrate your dog’s new skills, and transition the training to you!
