Puppy training Programs (up to 4 months old):
If you have a dog between 8-16 weeks old, we have a fantastic puppy training program for you to start your relationship off on the right paw! Each program comes with a puppy training guide. This guide provides all of the essential information for all puppy parents. We want to set you and your new puppy on the road to success, so never hesitate to ask us for help!
We start with fun and easy activities, while focusing on the basics and slowly move our way towards more advanced obedience exercises. We will give you a greater understanding of your role in your puppy’s behavioral cues and provide you with many practical applications on how to overcome them, turning them from potential negative experiences into a positive experience.
Doggy Days offers two programs for you and your new pup. Our day training program has playgroups to improve socialization while our SEL class focuses on building a healthier relationship between you and your puppy.
Puppies at this age need a bit of a different structure to their learning. We start it fun and easy, and focus on the basics… And slowly move our way towards some basic obedience and self-control exercises. To help keep owners on the right track, we offer two programs. You can do just one or both… Our programs are similar, but our day train has playgroups while our group class focuses on the puppy and owner focusing on each other.
- Puppy Day Training: $160/four sessions
Each day of this program consists of a carefully designed agenda to optimize your pup’s training including agility day, vet/groomer day, trick day, and mind your manners day. Each activity is designed to help your puppy learn how to overcome their fears, and understand how to better respond to these situations. Along with training exercises, your puppy will have a variety of experiences such as socializing during playgroups and many other fun activities. Upon pick-up, we will provide you with a report card highlighting your pup’s progress during the day. This package plan includes four sessions which can be used over the course of two weeks.
- Puppy Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Class: $120/four sessions
Social Emotional Learning is important in life, but not many people apply it to our dogs! The five main components of Social Emotional Learning are self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. It might seem intimidating to teach your puppy these concepts, but with Doggy Days taking the lead, we’ll guide you and your pet every step of the way.
Puppy SEL Class is a 45 minute Saturday group class that has the puppy and owner working together on engaging with each other, participating in fun station activities, simple obedience, and improving emotional regulation. We ask that only one person actively works alongside your dog during class, but families are welcome to join and watch from the sidelines.
