WHAT is Day School? This is not your typical dog daycare! SF Puppy Prep is an all day training and socialization experience exclusively for young puppies at the most critical time in their development. We equip your pup with everything they need to be a confident, relaxed, well-mannered dog who you will be proud to take anywhere.
Why You’ll LOVE it Dayschool is the perfect solution if you’re short on time or feeling frustrated with an over energetic puppy. Let us take on the tough stuff so you and your puppy can share quality time that’s frustration-free and loads of fun! Your pup will learn in leaps and bounds. We get them hooked on training by mixing it with play and making it fun. They will excel at Recall, Drop, Sits, Downs, Hand targeting, and more!They will fly over the the hardest hurdles of puppyhood: biting and mouthing, crate-training, and learn how to self entertain and relax when left alone. Significantly reduce the likelihood of common behavioral pitfalls. Separation anxiety, resource guarding , under-socialization, fear, and aggression are just some of the potential problems that can be avoided by investing in your pup’s early education. Puppies build confidence through our socialization program that gently helps them to accept new experiences easily. They will be social superstars in structured playgroups with other puppies where they will learn how to communicate appropriately with other dogs. We support you as well as your puppy. We will coach you on how to deal with the most common (and frustrating) puppy problems such as nipping, house-training, crate training, and barking,
HOW IT WORKS Our day in school is structured so that your pup has the right combination of training, play-time and chill-out time. Each school term lasts a minimum of 4 weeks with the option of a 5 ($2300) or 3 ($1505) day a week schedule. You drop off your pup between 7:30-9:00 and pick up between 1:30-3:00pm*. *We realize that this window is not ideal for some clients, so please let us know if you’d like a referral to a pet taxi service! You will receive an INCLUDED initial puppy consultation—a 60 minute session to help you puppy proof and put together a solid management schedule. We’ll help you troubleshoot and give you a toolkit of techniques and training exercises to get you off to a great start. Please note: We limit our intake to guarantee that each pup gets the individual attention they need during this sensitive learning stage, so enroll today and save your spot! Because there is such a short socialization window it is vital to begin training your pup as early as possible, even before they are fully vaccinated.
