ABOUT OUR PUPPY KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
Our Puppy Kindergarten program combines our wellbeing model of puppy preschool with puppy-focused training to help set you and your puppy up with the strongest foundation for all you do at home. This program includes training time, play time, new-experience time and rest (and lots and lots of fun!)
These early months of a puppy's life are not only extremely essential to their development and to building confidence in themselves in new situations and with new people, but also the ideal time to begin learning those foundational cues and behaviours that help your puppy integrate into your home and life.
During this program we work with your puppy but we also work with you in a designated weekly 15 minutes one-one-one to answer your questions about the inevitable puppy struggles of mouthing, biting, nipping, potty training or other challenging behaviours.

WHAT IS THE SCHEDULE OR FREQUENCY?
Puppy kindergarten is three times a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) for five weeks. If you need care on the other days, simply enrol your puppy in puppy preschool for continuity (just without the training)
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM FEE?
The puppy kindergarten program is $750 for the 15-day program. This includes the cost for the regular puppy preschool program ($33.60/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.
