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 Group and Private Puppy School, and we’ll train your puppy for you.

What our puppy programs can do for you

Get a head-start on basic manners

Your pup will learn all those words (sit, down, come, etc.) we all wish puppies came pre-programmed with.

Grow your puppy into an easy-going adult dog

We’ll get your pup out and about on field trips to socialize her to big city life and help her grow up into a calm, friendly dog.

Enjoy life with a calmer puppy

After a day of play and learning or a stay with us, your pup will come home ready to relax and cuddle while you decompress.

Puppy School Curriculum

Basic Manners Training

We’ll teach your pup her basics, like sit, down, stay, come, and walk nicely on leash.

Pesky Puppy Problems

Your pup will study how to relax in her crate when mom and dad need some downtime.


Through playtime with puppy friends, grooming exercises like brushing and nail trimming, and trainer-supervised fieldtrips, your pup will learn how to grow up into an easy-going, friendly adult dog you can take anywhere.

How Group Puppy School works

Group Puppy School is a unique combination of daycare and training—perfect for busy puppy parents who want a calmer, trained puppy without all the work.

Your puppy plays and socializes with fellow puppies, gets lots of love and cuddles from daycare staff and trainers, plus lots of fun, positive training to set her up for life.
