What is the difference between daycare and Day School?
Daycare is simply a place to hang out with other dogs while you are work.
Day School, is daycare with Basic Obedience Training included. The dog is at school for 6-8 hours Monday-Friday for three weeks.
At what age do you start working with puppies?
At 4 months of age, puppy training can begin formally in a class.
Under 6 months of age is the ideal time for socialization. This time in the puppy's life will never be repeatable, so this socialization period is more crucial than training. The puppy needs to get and experience the world around us.
Training at this young 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 adult obedience training with my dog?
The minimum age to begin On-leash obedience training is 6 months of age. This can be finished in 5 weeks in private lessons or in 10 weeks of group classes. Off-leash work would be another 3 weeks.
