+ dog day school



Not to be confused with day care, the pawsitive dog day school puts your dog on the training fast track and keeps him there! Designed to work hand-in-hand with our traditional classes, day school helps set your dog up for success by getting her into training mode and then passing the leash (and results!) to you.  With anywhere from 5-13 hours of steady immersion at each visit, these complete days cover all of the subjects: training, training, training, with a dose of socialization, playtime, treadmill and down time that includes crate, tether, dog bed and down stay exercises mixed in.

+ dog day school is a combination of good manners and obedience designed to help you develop an adaptable, adjustable dog that can venture anywhere calmy, comfortably and confidently. It is much more Montessori than an all-day free-for -all recess or a canine boot camp. YES - your dog will play and network with appropriate classmates, YES - he will also bask in abundant amounts of TLC, and YES- most importantly, she will receive several one-on-one training sessions both privately and in classes which complement and fast track your traditional class education.

Whether you're looking for a jump start to training, an opportunity to fine-tune and fill in the holes, hoping to tackle troublesome behaviors or simply, looking for a better way to keep your dog mentally and physically stimulated, our day school/class combination is for you!  What better way to make the most of your dog's training journey than to have your dog handled and trained by experienced professionals each-and-every week. In fact, our structured program is overseen by the same training faculty who train your dog in class, at camp and on home visits. With a combined 50+ years of full-time teaching and training and more than 10,000 dogs at the end of their leashes, Jen and Francis have the knowledge and experience to help you set your dog up for a lifetime of success and then transfer those skills to you via our traditional classes.

Dogs are invited to spend between one and four days each week (with most participating between two and three .) Of course, individual attendance varies according to each team's starting place, training pace, commitment, and goals and we work together with each individual owner to develop a personalized plan that is consistently evaluated and re-evaluated as we go.

Due to our high demand and interest in providing personalized service for all of our clients, dogs and owners alike, day school is only available to active class attendees.

"What I am most proud of is that he has discovered the joy of being a dog. He is more confident, relaxed and carefree around other dogs – and so am I. I always worried that he was missing out b/c he didn't know how to play with other dogs or even with other dogs nearby. Sure, he loves walking with his friends – but he wasn't able to enjoy running and playing with them (probably more my issue than his). Now I get so excited when I drop him off at day school and he walks confidently in to the room with no concern for any dog he passes – and I get even more emotional when I see or hear about him actually 'playing' with other classmates during the day or while at camp!! And while I know not every dog is good match for him, it's nice to see the 'smile' on his face when he does find one he likes."
