Our Day Training program was developed as an extension to Board and Train and Private Lessons and to provide stand- alone Advanced Pack Socialization (APS). Day Training is offered to established clients to work on the following skills:
- Proofing general obedience with distractions and distance
- Refreshing general obedience skills
- Introducing e-collar during the course of a private lesson package
- Introducing crate training strategies
- Refreshing leash manners/leash reactivity strategies
- Counter conditioning for grooming/nail trims
- Mental and Physical exercises, as well as confidence building through Enrichment activities
We also offer Advanced Pack Socialization (APS) to existing clients and clients who are referred to us from other trainers. During APS your dog will be introduced to our small group of Enrichment dogs in a very controlled setting with the guidance of a trainer who will ensure your dog is given adequate space (something you cannot get at the dog park!). Our Enrichment dogs are comprised of well-balanced dogs that are comfortable in a group setting. Having access to this caliber of dogs ensures balanced behaviors among the pack which helps to teach your dog appropriate play behaviors and stress coping mechanisms. APS can be used diagnostically to help understand your dog’s behavior with other dogs and, when scheduled consistently, it can help your dog learn how to more comfortably exist in the presence of other dogs.
Day training is convenient way to augment your training program as it allows you to drop your dog off at the facility while we perform training during the day. Our trainers will email you a detailed report and, if recommended, we will set up a private lesson for you to review the skills your dog has worked on. We offer this program Tuesday through Friday. Morning drop-off is between 7:00am and 9:00am. Afternoon pick-up is between 4:00pm and 6:00pm.
Your Dog’s Sessions
Your dog will have 1 hour of training time (which may be split up over the course of the day) with our trainers. When your dog is not working with his trainer, he will be resting in one of our comfortable kennels and will be given bathroom and water breaks.
The cost is $155/ day.
We must have your dog’s current vaccine information and liability forms filled out and signed prior to scheduling a training day. Please fill out our contact form if you are not a current client and have been referred by a different trainer for Day Training.
