ABOUT OUR PUPPY KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
Puppy kindergarten is an intentional socialization and training support program which incorporates basic training and behaviour fundamentals to help your puppy have a solid foundation both socially and for future training. Your puppy spends the day with us for puppy preschool and also has trainer-led time for intentional socialization experiences and training.
Because puppies between 8 – 24 weeks are going through such critical development stages, we focus on creating positive introductions to new sounds, smells, surfaces, objects and people and helping your puppy learn how to learn.
Socialization is far more than simply getting to know or play with other dogs, so our focus is on creating a safe environment with trusted relationships so that we can introduce the "new" to your puppy in positive ways to build your puppy's confidence. Spending time with new people in a new place with new experiences is an exceptionally important part of raising a well-socialized dog.

Puppy kindergarten is two times a week (Tuesday and Thursday) for six weeks (12 sessions). If you need care on the other days, simply enrol your puppy in a regular day of daycare (puppy preschool) for continuity.
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM FEE?
The puppy kindergarten program is $825 for the 12-day program. This includes the cost for the regular puppy preschool program ($35/day). Daycare packages cannot be applied to the cost of puppy kindergarten.
WILL MY PUPPY ALWAYS BE WITH OTHERS?
It all depends! If we have other puppies that match your puppy in size, play-style and confidence, then we'll match your puppy with them for supervised play. Safety and fun always come first!
Socialization is far far more than simply getting to know or play with other dogs, so our focus is on creating a safe environment with trusted relationships so that we can introduce the "new" to your puppy in positive ways to build your puppy's confidence. Spending time with new people in a new place with new experiences is an exceptionally important part of raising a well-socialized dog.
As they grow in size, age, and confidence, we'll adjust their play group and amount of play time with others to match them at every step along the way.
LUNCH OR DINNER
Growing puppies need to keep up their nourishment. Because there are so many sensitivities for puppies, we'll only feed your puppy the food you provide.
For puppies in the preschool or kindergartens program, there is no charge for lunch service.
