Puppy Day School

As Houston’s original puppy experts, we offer a specialized Puppy Day School. This program is an elite, comprehensive private school, created to take advantage of your puppy’s most crucial imprinting and learning period.

Our Puppy Day School is an all day, drop off training program developed for puppies from 8 weeks to 6 months old. Your puppy will spend the whole day with our trained puppy experts, learning, socializing, and playing! This is not a doggy daycare, but rather, a very structured environment with custom curriculums created especially for puppies.  

Our Puppy Day School program is very popular and space is extremely limited. The program is training intensive and we keep a very small ratio of 4 puppies per trainer!  If you are interested in a package, we recommend scheduling your private lesson before your puppy comes home. If you already have your puppy and interested in a package, please do not delay!

Puppy Day School is offered: 

Monday - Friday

DROP OFF BETWEEN 8:00-9:30 AM

PICK UP BETWEEN 4:30-6:00 PM

 

Designed to support the training you’re doing at home; Day School provides your young dog with much needed structured socialization and rest time. The daily curriculum includes:

  • Foundation Skill Building

  • Basic Manners Training

  • Socialization & Play

  • Real Life Training Scenarios

  • Relaxation Time

  • Self-Control

  • Potty Training Maintenance

  • Crate Training Maintenance

  • Bite Inhibition

  • Enrichment Activities

At pick up time, owners are filled in on how their puppy performed that day, are given tips on what to work in at home and receive a report card to keep track of their pup’s progress.

Our Puppy Programs are recommended by many of Houston’s most respected veterinarians and our state-of the art Canine Training and Enrichment Center was carefully designed with your puppy’s health and safety in mind.

Prerequisite & Requirements for Packages

  • At least one 90-minute private lesson in home or at our Center is required to begin. During this initial lesson, we will discuss your puppy's daily routine, your potty-training plan of action & what your goals are for her behavior. We will also give you tips you can use immediately for issues like nipping & potty accidents. Finally, we will discuss your continued education:      

    • 10-day packages will receive 20% off of Puppy Class Part One

    • 20-day packages will receive 30% off Puppy Class Part One

  • Puppies with packages should attend Day School at least 2 or 3 times per week.  

  • Crate Familiarity: All puppies must have begun crate training at home prior to their first day of Puppy Day School. They must be able to settle and be calm in a crate, as puppies need lots of rest in between training and activities. At this stage of development, it is imperative that all of your puppy’s experiences be positive. If your puppy cannot be calmed down in the crate, we will suspend your Puppy Day School sessions and apply credit towards private lessons, group classes, or puppy socials.
