Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

What do I bring with my dog when dropping them off for day training?

Your dog..of course, some yummy treats, their walking gear (collar or harness & leash), and if you feel your dog would like a blanket or toy from home, bring that along as well! We want our students to be as comfortable and happy as possible while they are here with us for school!

What does a typical day look like for my dog?

When the pups first arrive, they go right outside to use the bathroom while their trainers set up their individual rooms and prep their training plan for that day! They then go into their rooms for some mental enrichment time before heading into their first one-on-one training session with their trainer of the day! Your dog will spend lots of one-on-one time with their trainer throughout the day and then will have a recess at the end of their day to enjoy some more mental enrichment and/or another social playtime!

How long does it normally take for my dog to graduate a program?

It entirely depends on the dog! For most folks who are diligent about doing their homework and practicing everyday outside of their program, it can be 6-8 weeks. For others it can take a bit longer depending on their baseline. It is evident when an owner isn't working with their dog outside of their program which will result in the dog needing to stay in that program longer!

How do I get on the wait list and/or how long will I be on the wait list?

The first step is creating a client portal! Once you are registered, you can give our office a call to get your pup's account on the waiting list. We bring a dog in when another dog graduates from the desired program so it can be a few weeks or a few months! If you are currently enrolled in a program and you are eligible to continue onto a more advanced program but would like to take a break for an extended period of time, you will be put back on the wait list so we can open a slot up for another dog!
