Daycare with Training
Daycare with Training is a program designed exclusively for puppies six months and under. Puppies are dropped off at my own home for a full (8 hour) day of learning that includes commands, etiquette, and safe socialization. Throughout the day, puppies are well cared for and receive regular meals, fresh water, naptime, and quality playtime. At the end of the day, puppies are sent home with instructions and homework (if applicable). As an additional bonus, puppies who complete five or more days receive a free private lesson.
Socialization-Centered Daycare with Training
On socialization-centered days, up to four puppies attend Daycare with Training for the purpose of building their socialization behavior. It is a fantastic opportunity for both puppies who want to play, and for puppies who are shy and need to grow their social confidence. Socialization is especially important for puppies between 8-16 weeks, so Daycare with Training is a fantastic way to properly capitalize on this developmental period. Plus, imagine the skills they will learn from an entire day of trainer-monitored play! (Offered only on certain days - space is limited).
Daycare with Training is safe for puppies who are not fully vaccinated, as I use the same disinfectant in my home that veterinarians use in their clinics. My private, fenced backyard is where puppies play and potty. Furthermore, I always take great care to follow owner's specific care instructions.
Please keep in mind that while Daycare with Training is an effective protocol for basic command training and socialization, it is not the best protocol for working on separation anxiety, potty training, and other contextual behaviors (i.e. biting furniture, etc). For these behaviors, the Reverse Daycare (or Boarding) with Training program is ideal, since puppies learn best in their own environment.
