Puppy University

Great Training for Puppies Under 12 Weeks of Age!

Starting Between 8-12 Weeks of Age

Puppies join us for a semester where they are dropped off at school in the morning for a full day of training, socialization, and fun!

This program is a way you can have your puppy started on the right track while being trained and worked through common puppy behaviors. This is a specialized puppy program where your puppy will learn proper crate training, exposure to new things, how to learn basic obedience and introductions to basic things like vet visits, new people, the groomers, etc. The program runs Monday through Friday, where you can customize how many times you come per week.

Our options are:
3 days/week; 4 days/week or 5 days/week.
Owners sign their puppies up for either 8-week or 16-week program. Enrollment into the 8-week program does not guarantee extension space into the 16-week program.

Hours: Drop off is before 8:30 (earliest 7 AM). Pickup after 5 PM (As late as 7 PM). Monday through Friday.

Pricing: $35/Day

*Unexcused absences can lead to dismissal of the program*


Eligible puppies must be between the ages of 8 weeks and 12 weeks.

Puppies must be up-to-date with their vaccinations and pass a fecal exam indicating no parasites. We require a minimum of 2 rounds of DHPP and 1 round of Bordetella to begin the program.

*All puppies will need to have a puppy check-up at the Vet before attending even if they come from a place that gave puppy vaccinations*

If your puppy doesn't meet these requirements, we still have training for you! Group classes, private lessons and puppy socials are all made for puppies!

Things to Know:

This program was intended for the puppies best interest long term. We do have some requirements the owners must be able to commit too such as crate training, scheduled feeding, time commitments and signing up for continued training.
