DAY DOG Training
While we love dogs, we really love dogs that behave and listen! The goal of Dogtopia Day Dog Training is pretty simple, we get your pup to do what you want, when you want, the first time you ask. The benefit of our training process is the combination of socialization and one-on-one training. We have developed a thorough training program to help dogs with their behavioral needs, both socially around other dogs and around people.
By the end of their sessions, you’ll be able to put your dog into any social setting and know they will respond to your commands. Whether you have a new puppy, want to sharpen your older dog’s manners, or expand their skill set, Dogtopia training can be tailored to your pup’s needs and will help enhance the joy of pet parenthood.
How it works:
Your dog comes for dog daycare over a three-week period where they get one on one training while they are in our facility. You drop your dog off as you go about your day and pick them up at the end of the day while we work with them on their behaviors. Each Saturday, we do a one on one recap class where we work with you to make sure you know everything, we have been teaching your dog.
Dogtopia daycare is more than just a place to leave your dog. At Dogtopia, it’s where they interact all day! Your dog will learn to properly socialize and become well-mannered around other dogs and control their emotions and energy. This is a key component to their development and very unique to our training process, you also reap the rewards with a tired pup at night. They attend daycare every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday for the 3 consecutive week training program.
Your dog will receive three thirty-minute sessions each weekday and two thirty-minute sessions each weekend day with our professional trainer. Dogs have to shift gears from excited play mode to obedience mode, it’s a challenge but this mimics real life when you need your dog to be obedient during exciting times. Our professional trainer will work with your dog on mastering ten (10) training commands (Heel, Sit, Down, Stay, Place, Off, Come, Home (Kennel), Touch, & Focus).
Also, when you pick up your dog each Saturday, you will also have a 30-minute recap with our trainer at a scheduled time to go over what was taught that week and how to reinforce the training at home. There are several great tips and tricks we will give you to help around the house and on those walks!
After they have graduated, you participate in two Saturday evening classes in a group setting where your dog gets to show off what they’ve learned. Group classes take place on Saturdays at 5:30P after we are closed for daycare. Group class is where we really test your dog through real-world scenarios. In group, they learn to hold their commands with other dogs and people present. This is the ultimate test!
