Congratulations on your new puppy! When a family acquires a new puppy, it is an exciting and busy time. Puppies are fun and a bit of work too!
Just like an infant, puppies require constant supervision so they won’t get themselves into mischief. It can be hard to adjust the your daily routine to meet the puppy’s needs. Often owners do not have the time or skills it takes to teach their puppy proper housebreaking habits, socialization and training boundaries. However, these habits are critical to helping your puppy grow into a well-adjusted, happy dog.
Dog-Gone Fun understands the limitations of a busy daily life. We also know how much fun owning a puppy can be.

Puppy Day School combines daycare and dog training to help your puppy get a jumpstart on training and socialization.
Simply drop off your puppy off between 7-9 a.m. and pick them up between 4-6 p.m. for a predetermined number of days. We give you, the owner, the educational material, and the encouragement that you need to continue the same routine at home.
Any questions and concerns that you have are resolved on a daily basis.
Included in day school will be 3, weekly Puppy – Teacher Conference training sessions to offer you guidance with your puppy.
Lessons will include sit, down, coming when called and walking on a leash. We will enforce polite greetings and appropriate human-dog interactions.
During the day, puppies will receive plenty of dog to dog interactions and play with other puppies as well as appropriate adult dogs. As with any preschool, structured naptimes and a regular feeding schedule will be provided. Crate training will also be provided.
*Puppy vaccines are required to attend puppy day school. We require two sets of puppy vaccines and a bordatella to attend. We will accept your veterinarian’s puppy vaccination schedule. We also require proof on a negative stool sample for all puppies who attend.
