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.
