Don Valley Puppy Pre-School

It's all about my quality time with BFFFs.  You know - socializing, playing and being a smarty pants...sans the pants.


A puppy’s first year is critical in developing their behaviour and personality, that’s why safe socialization is needed right from the start. Happy, healthy puppies need plenty of playtime in a safe setting.

Have your pup play in a safe and structured environment for early socialization and learning. Your puppy will practice crate training and cues like sit, come and off. We’ll also work on discouraging jumping, nipping and other unwanted behaviours. We will be exposing them to new sounds, items, and experiences – all while you watch from home!

Each Saturday we’ll have a different curriculum and you will receive a report card as well.

*Puppies in this program must be 12 weeks – 6 months old, under 35 lbs, and fully vaccinated. All candidates must pass an evaluation, before the first class, to ensure your puppy’s safety and comfort in open-play environment, and be up to date on their shots (dependent on age). 


9.30am-10:30am: Drop Off/Open Play – As puppies are dropped off, they will enjoy some playtime with their BFFFs (Best Furry Friends Forever) and learning good behavior as they are taught to not jump, bark or nip.

10:30am-11:30am: Structured Play – Puppies will engage in new activities 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.

11:30-12:30: Lunch/Break 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 snack while resting in their home-style crates. We will also encourage calm crate behaviour through story time, classical music, and wellness checks.

12:30pm-2pm: Enrichment Play – The puppies will continue engaging in more activities including being introduced to grooming, water playtime, trying agility, using their senses to navigate the world around them, and learning commands in addition to the enrichment activities.

2pm-3pm: Pick up/Crate Time – After a full day of learning, puppies will enjoy a quick rest until they are reunited with their pet parent. You will receive a report card and our coach will discuss the progress individually at pickup.
