DAY

SCHOOL

Drop your dog off Stepping Stone Animal Training for an exciting day of learning!

 

Your dog will experience structured group games, controlled group play, private lessons, fitness training, group lessons, and any other activities your dog may need.

 

We keep our Day School class very small – less than seven dogs per trainer! This way, we can improve confidence, focus, and self-control in each student. At the end of each day, you will receive a detailed report with goals and plan.

How is Day School different from Day Care?


There are numerous differences:

  1. Often daycare includes many dogs - 12-40. We only include 6 students in our class. This allows us to include dogs that are unable to tolerate a more chaotic daycare setting.
  2. Our play sessions are scheduled, controlled and supervised by highly experienced and trained staff.
  3. Each dog has puzzle time and nap time in their own private pup cubbie or space.
  4. Each dog receives a minimum of 4 private training sessions throughout the day.
  5. Each dog receives multiple group training sessions throughout the day to specifically teach self control and focus.
  6. We become intimatelly aware of each dog's specific learning style, needs and behavior goals.
  7. We are able to create real-life scenarios to work on specific problems.




When can my dog start Day School?


Your puppy or dog may attend Day School as soon as they have started their vaccinations with your veterinarian (including bordatella). Puppies under 14 weeks of age will be socialized, housetrained and begin foundation behaviors. Dogs are never too old to attend Day School, although some older dogs may not enjoy the social interactions as much as a younder dog.




My dog wasn't a good fit for Day Care- can he/she come to Day School?


Yes! very possibly. The experience of our staff combined with our education center's flexibility, allows us to create a positive learning experience for many dogs that otherwise may not be comfortable in a daycare setting. We evalute each student's situtation on an individual basis and come up with a plan.




I think my dog has separation anxiety. Would Day School be a good fit for him/her?


Yes!! We can teach your dog self confidence and how to be independant while we address the separation anxiety.
