You already had plenty to do.

You live in the capital city, after all, where work and life rarely slow down.

Now you’ve got a puppy.

And your puppy has sharp little teeth, a tiny bladder, and endless energy.

We can help.

Simply choose between Day School and Board & Train, and we’ll do the training for you.

Choose From Three Training Programs:

Day School - Standard

Your puppy will practice the same foundation skills we teach in our top-notch Basic Obedience classes, including sit, lie down, go to place, stay, come when called and the beginning of polite leash walking. Your pup will also study relaxing in the crate, so mom and dad can have some downtime.

Day School - Custom

Personalize your pup’s syllabus to select lessons from our standard curriculum as well as create an individualized training plan.

Board & Train - Custom

Planning some travel? While you’re away, your pup will gain all of the advantages of our personalized Day School program, not to mention all of the additional one-on-one attention.

How it works

Our Day School and Board & Train programs are the perfect combination of daycare and training—perfect for busy pet parents who want a calmer, trained pup with a lot less work.

Your pup plays and socializes with fellow puppies, gets lots of love and cuddles from daycare staff and trainers, and learns new skills to set her up for life.
