What sets our day academy apart from the others?

Dogs are social animals and they do learn from each other. Our unique daycare program is designed to teach dogs good social skills. Dog are carefully placed into groups to maximize social learning. We monitor over excitement, rude behavior or any inappropriate behavior so that unwanted social behavior is not practiced. Our group size range from 5 to 10 dogs per group this ensures a safe learning environment for all dogs. We accept all dogs that includes neutered and unneutered which allows dogs to learn how to interact with ALL dogs. Good experiences in these social structures will result in dog that can handle being in the presence of other dog in relaxed manner. Our daycare staff is trained in reading dog body language and we have dog trainers available to evaluate all dog interaction and play. 

Day Academy Program

Our new academy program is for all dogs but more specifically for dogs that need a little extra work or need fine tune existing skills. All the dogs will get structured playtime and socialization in groups with appropriate playmates for their play style and temperament. This playtime will not be your typical free-for-all that you find in many daycare facilities, where dogs can learn and practice inappropriate behaviors and develop bad habits and dangerous play styles (humping, constant pinning, marking, etc). We believe that playtime is an important learning time, and want to prevent over-stimulation, and out of control behavior. The dogs will be getting important feedback from the staff, insuring that they develop into savvy dog players, not playground bullies. For the wall flowers in the group, we will make sure that they will feel safe, and help them come out of their shell with carefully created socialization opportunities.
The dogs will have several training sessions throughout their day. Training provides one of the best ways to exercise their brains, and can even be more ‘tiring’ than physical exercise. You will have the opportunity to pick the kinds of training you want your dog to have. Everything from basic commands to nose work, agility, and even swimming.  
All dogs must be evaluated before being accepted into our day academy program. Click to schedule your evaluation.
