 Day Academy Program

Our new academy program is for all dogs but more specifically for dogs that need a little extra work. We accept dogs that have leash reactivity issues and other behavior issues. We also accept intact dogs in our program. In our program intact and neutered dogs learn how to play together in a safe and positive environment. Providing dogs with the skill of playing all dogs helps with dog to dog issues in their daily life.

For optimal physical and behavioral health of the dogs under our care, we are going to be implementing a more structured day.

The program will be as follows:

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 daycares, 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 overstimulation, 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 sit, stay, loose leash walking, to nose work, agility, and even swimming.
