Day School is for you if:
You have a busy schedule and want faster results compared to group or private training
You want to instill basic and advanced manners skills in your dog
You have specific training needs and want individual help from a trainer
You want a quick turn around in your pet's training
Day School is not for you if:
Your dog is exhibiting aggression, reactivity, fear, or anxiety - register for a Behavior Consultation instead
You don't want to have a lasting relationship with your dog
You don't want to be involved in the training process and see lasting results
Your dog will receive a total of 7 hours of training each school day. This provides both a tailored training plan and proper socialization for your dog!
We allow a maximum of 4 dogs per school day, meaning your dog will be well looked after and get lots of individual time with the trainer. This also means spots are very limited, so don't wait to secure yours!
An Initial Consultation is required before signing up so you can meet with your trainer and discuss your goals to be sure that our day school is the right fit for you. Initial consultations are a separate fee of $75 for a 30 minute appointment.
