What is the difference between daycare and day school?
Daycare is you dropping off your dog between 7:30am - 10:30am and picking up 2:30pm - 5;30pm, Mon - Friday. A fun day here includes socialization, crate training, no jump training, bark control, proper play skills, gate/door manners.
Day school, is daycare with Basic Obedience Training included. The dog is at school for 6-10 hours Monday-Friday for four weeks.
At what age do you start working with puppies?
Under 6 months of age is the ideal time for socialization. This time in the puppy's life will never be repeatable, so this is more crucial than training.
Training at this age is treat or toy-based teaching of hand signals, positions and words using Positive Reinforcement only.
We recommend the excellent book of The Art of Raising a Puppy by the Monks of New Skete to guide you on creating a regimen for the pup at home.
When can I start obedience training with my puppy?
The minimum age to begin obedience training is 6 months.
