Q: What is day training?
A: Day training is a drop off training service. Dogs spend half days, up to 5 hours, at our facility and are worked both individually and with other dogs, in short sessions throughout the day training day. Drop off and pick up times are convenient and fit most traditional work schedules. Spots for day training are limited to ensure the most attention and training time for each dog.
Q: What is the difference in Day Training and Daycare?
A: Think of day training as an alternate to daycare, with structure learning and some play opportunities. Dogs are not in large play groups, they are working throughout the day and have one on one time with a trainer. While daycare can be a great option for many dogs, some dogs don’t do well in large play groups. Day training is a perfect option for those dogs that need physical and mental stimulation outside of the home but may not be compatible with traditional daycare services. Day training is a great way for dogs to learn anything from basic skills to leash manners from an experienced trainer. We do the hard work, and help the dog learn behaviors first, then transfer the skills to you.
Q: Will my dog be completely trained after completing day training?
A: Day training does not take the place of owners working with their dogs at home. Owners will still need to commit some time to working with their dog to maintain the skills they have learned in our day training program. You will receive a daily video and handout so you can work on the behaviors at home with your dog. You can also purchase discounted private lessons with one of our instructors if you desire a more in-depth coaching experience.
Q: What is the benefit of Day Training?
A: Day Training provides a safe comfortable environment that fosters the highest level of learning. Benefits include mental and physical exercise, convenience, peace of mind and customized solutions for busy lives.
Drop Off Times- 8:30 am to 9:00 am
Pick Up Times – 2:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Owners will provide a towel or mat for your dog to rest on during crated times throughout the day. Also provide us with rewards for training sessions such as food, chews or toys.
Day training is not a lifelong event. It can be a useful tool for instilling new behaviors quickly, or changing behaviors in a structured way that the dog understands.
