Our core program offers small class sizes, a standard class schedule, enrichment activities stimulating the mind, recess, and rest times. We believe in smaller class sizes so that each dog can receive individualized attention. Students will receive close to equal time in class and at rest. Our teachers will be reinforcing good behaviors and appropriate play and discouraging negative behaviors and inappropriate play. Our classes will be focused on the basics: sitting, stay, recall, on-lead walking, manners, and exercise.
We also offer an Advanced Placement enrichment daycare program (aka AP,) which can be an alternative, or in addition to our core daycare offering. This innovative program takes a individualized, one-on-one approach to your dog's day. Our professors will customize activities that pair with your dogs needs and goals. Some enrichment activities include:
- Nose work
- Loose leash walking
- Basic obedience training
- Agility obstacles including: Wobble boards, tunnels, hula hoops, agility hurdles, etc.
- Learning new tricks
- Mental stimulation
- Individual playtime with a furry companion (based on dogs comfort level)
Pups in our facility will find comfort during their rest times in a suite system that is top of the line in safety. Each dog will have an individual suite that is maintained with the industries best practices for cleaning and disinfection to promote health and well-being. The suites feature solid walls so the dogs can hear and smell each other to get a sense of community but aren’t over stimulated by being able to see dogs in adjoining suites. Boarders will participate in the class schedule alongside daycare only dogs. After an exciting day at play, our pups sleep soundly in their own personal space.
We offer positive reinforcement training, both private and group classes, and we will be focusing on the basics: sit, stay, and recall as part of the daily curriculum for all dogs.
Tutoring – Our tutoring program consists of at least one parent and the dog in a one-on-one 50 minute session. In addition to addressing specific behaviors, we will share with you tips and tricks on the basics of training and provide you with documentation on how to continue working these behaviors at home.
Study Hall – Study Hall is designed for regular daycare dogs whose parents would like continued basic training on specific skills (sit, stay, leave it, loose leash walking, etc). The dog will receive one-on-one training with an MPA teacher to help reach their goals. Parents are given a request form prior to the first lesson to communicate goals desired. A progress report is sent home with your dog after each lesson, so parents know exactly how their pup did during the study hall period!
