Frequently asked questions about Day Training

What does my dog's day look like?

After being dropped off, your dog will rest in the confinement space in which they are comfortable until training starts at 9am. They will cycle through the activities of potty, play, one-on-one training, snack and rest until they are picked up. Dogs who are approved for daycare can also join the playgroup for an additional fee.

What type of training can you offer in Day Training?

We offer a variety of training options such as basic manners training, preparation for Canine Good Citizen testing, leash reactivity, dog social skills, etc. Dogs who exhibit human aggression are better suited for private training where their guardians are present.

How will my dog behave once they are home?

Behavior change takes time for all animals. We provide you with a customized homework video and handouts for each day your dog trains with us to provide you with the information you need to continue the progress as soon as your dog comes home.

How many sessions of Day Training should my dog participate in?

We recommend no less than 5 day training sessions to be able to complete a comprehensive program. For optimum retention of new behaviors, having your dog attend day training a minimum of 2-3 times a week is advised. If your dog’s undesired behavior is severe or well practiced, your dog will need a longer day training program. We will work with you regarding your goals, budget and timeline to establish the right training plan for you and your dog.

What are the requirements for Day Training?

We can only accept dogs for day training who meet the following requirements: - Able to rest comfortably in some sort of confinement (kennel or condo); meaning they do not panic, excessively pant or vocalize, try to escape, or become destructive. - Able to be handled by trained staff for leashing, potty breaks, and training. If your dog does not meet these requirements, we recommend private training instead.
