We all want the same thing – for your puppy to feel safe and empowered while learning and to become the best version of themselves possible. More than daycare, Puppy Club is a comprehensive program for puppies up to 24 weeks of age designed to assist families to socialize, normalize, and problem solve as their pups mature. Puppy Club includes morning (8:15-11:45) and afternoon (1:30-5:00) puppy care, in groups of 6, with opportunities to recreate with other pups, begin basic manners, crate train, house train, and begin positive exposure to a variety of novel stimuli. Considered a behavioral vaccination, these robust and scientifically supported early socialization efforts, when done well, best prepare both puppies and their guardians for a lifetime of resilience and comfort. Allow our force-free, experienced training team to help your puppy thrive, sign-up today!
Drop-off for morning sessions occurs between 8:15 and 8:30 am with pick-up between 11:30 and 11:45 am.
