Puppy Day Camp FAQ
How many puppies do you allow into school at once?
To maximize each puppy’s training, socialization, and development into a fantastic future adult dog, we take only 8 puppies per month.
Can I send my puppy just once a week or for just a week at a time?
We’re sorry, but we insist on the full program so that you and your pup see the best results.
Doesn’t my puppy need all her shots before starting school?
Actually, no. The latest science says one round of shots is enough to start a safe, professionally run puppy program. The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behaviorists recommends starting training and socialization as soon as your puppy has her first round of shots. [Link to PDF download]
What is this socialization thing you keep mentioning?
Socialization is the critically important process by which your puppy learns how to be a friendly, easy going, laid back adult dog. Most puppies are instinctively friendly and comfortable in the world, but not all stay as they grow up. Socialization helps puppies carry their care-free attitude into adulthood to avoid common dog behavior issues like shyness and aggression.
