Dog Day School Training | Jump Start Program

Dog Day School

Jump Start Program

Day School Training is our most sought after program. This dog training course is the perfect compromise if you don’t want to leave your dog for a Board and Train program but you don’t have the time to do all the work yourself through Private Coaching lessons.

We are typically booked 4 – 6 weeks in advance for this program simply because it is the best of both worlds for many dog owners.

The Jump Start Day Training program starts out with you dropping your dog off at our facility for two days in a row (Monday – Tuesday), so your dog can receive private sessions with our professional staff. Then, you as the dog owner, participate in an evening lesson to learn how to maintain and expand on the skills your dog is acquiring. Your job will then be to practice the new skills for a few days. Next a professional trainer will meet with you for a Private Lesson at a mutually agreed upon location (your home, park, pet store..) to make sure your dog is learning to generalize the behaviors.
The following week your dog returns for two more days of day training (Wed – Thurs) provided by our professional staff, followed by another lesson to keep you up to speed. After this you and your dog will be invited to join us for a Field Trip day where you will learn how to incorporate all of these wonderful new skills into your adventures together.

During the training, your dog will also be allowed to participate in our structured Doggie Day Care AND go on outings to other locations to help generalize the learned behaviors.

After the Jump Start day training is complete you begin attending our Polishing Classes to enhance and add to the skill set that has been taught. As you progress through the Polishing Classes you will be invited to participate in our fun and exciting, On The Go! classes. These classes are held in varying locations around the city. The purpose is to ensure you feel confident fully immersing your dog into your lifestyle around real world distractions!

If you are struggling with more significant issues like; fears, phobias, compulsive behavior or aggression problems, we encourage you to contact us for a FREE behavioral consultation. We have successfully helped thousands of dogs by designing programs that combine obedience training, counter-conditioning and desensitization techniques to help your dog become calmer and more stable members of society. Day School training includes evening lessons with you, the owner. This insures you understand the required techniques to keep up with your dog’s progress.
