Dogtopia Puppy PreschoolA puppy’s first year is critical in developing their behavior and personality, that’s why safe socialization is needed right from the start. Happy, healthy puppies need plenty of playtime in a safe setting for learning and growing with friends.


THE 8-WEEK PUPPY PRESCHOOL is on SATURDAYS  PLUS one additional weekday (Monday through thursday). This program INCLUDES:

  • Open and structured play in a clean and safe environment
  • Crate training
  • Learning new cues like sit, down and off
  • Education to discourage jumping, nipping and other unwanted behaviors
  • Exposure to new sights, smells and sounds
  • Breaks and nap time
  • A certified Canine Coach to manage and educate all puppies
  • Meeting their BFFFs (Best Furry Friends Forever)
  • Graduation certificate

Repetition is key to learning! Our Puppy Love Experts recommend puppies attend preschool two times a week for the full eight weeks to help them grow into a well-balanced dog. Upon completion, your puppy will be celebrated with a completion certificate. A picture-perfect opportunity to commemorate their big accomplishment!

*Puppies must be at least 12 weeks old and fully vaccinated. All puppies 7 months or older must be spayed or neutered. All candidates must pass an evaluation to ensure your puppy’s safety and comfort in open-play environment. 


On Saturdays, your puppy will be in a class with a dedicated Puppy Preschool Trainer. The class schedule will be as follows:

  • Drop Off/Open Play: As puppies are dropped off, they will enjoy a couple of hours of open playtime with their BFFFs (Best Furry Friends Forever) and learning good behavior as they are taught to not jump, bark or nip.
  • Break Time: Puppies will be crated for a one-hour rest to calm them from the excitement of playing with their BFFFs and help them learn quiet behavior.
  • Structured Play: Puppies will engage in a new activity every 30 minutes including follow the leader, collar desensitization, agility courses, bubbles and more. The puppies will also engage in enrichment activities to introduce them to situations they will encounter in the real world, including hearing different sounds, smelling new scents and seeing new things.
  • Nap Time: All that education and fun in the morning will tire the puppies. To have them ready for more learning in the afternoon, they’ll enjoy lunch or a healthy treat while resting in their home-style crates.
  • Open Play: Puppies will be free to run and play around the playroom with the other puppies for two hours.
  • Structured Play: The puppies will continue engaging in more activities including walking on a leash, water playtime, playing with toys and learning commands in addition to the enrichment activities.
  • Pick up/Open Play: After a full day of learning, puppies will enjoy open play until they are reunited with their pet parent.

For the second day, you may choose any day between Monday to Thursday for your puppy to come to open daycare. Your puppy will be put into a room based on size and temperament.
