Dog School at Fun Fur Pets is an affordable way to train your dog and/or supplement the training that you’re doing at home!
Dog School requires a 3-month commitment (2 days/week for 12 weeks) for training at Fun Fur Pets.
You can choose your Dog School days for Tuesdays & Thursdays OR Wednesdays & Fridays.
Dog School hours are 6:30am–6:30pm*, and your dog should attend for at least 8 hours on your chosen two days per week (Tues/Thurs or Wed/Fri) to receive the full benefit of Dog School and truly make an impact on your dog’s behavior.
*Dogs can be dropped off earlier or later if needed to fit into your schedule! Simply request to make these arrangements and your dog can relax in a suite as needed outside of Dog School hours (but still within Fun Fur Pets’ standard dog daycare hours).
There will be a maximum of 10 dogs per day at Dog School, and there are always at least 2 trainers working with the dogs, so you know your dog will be getting the individual care and training he or she needs!
Fees are charged weekly at $76.00/week, so your dog’s entire 3-month program is $916.00.
A typical day at Dog School
Dogs will go right from dropoff into a suite until Dog School begins and then will be fed his or her breakfast (which you must provide) using a canine enrichment toy.
At approximately 8am, your dog will enjoy some dog-on-dog playtime in groups of 5 or less indoors or outside (contingent on weather). If your dog is not group-appropriate, he or she will play one-on-one with a trainer (such as using a flirt pole with a toy).
Other activities throughout the day will include treadmill time, agility work, and scent games. There will be breaks for your dog to return to his or her suite between play times to ensure no one gets overstimulated.
Skills covered in Dog School can include: sit, stay, no jumping, loose leash walking, dog reactivity, noises and phobias, come when called, reinforcing dog name, and muzzle training (if required for your dog’s vet, groomer, etc.).
We incorporate training into all our activities at Dog School, so there’s no specific number of hours of training because there’s training in everything we do.
Weekly reports will be emailed to dog parents at the end of the week.
