What is puppy daycare?
It is a day that is geared toward the proper learning that your puppy needs. Puppies retain proper socialization when learning from other puppies and older dogs
What happens at Puppy Daycare?
- Interacting with other puppies while our team encourages proper play and socialization and corrects improper play and socialization.
- Scheduled break times in their separate kennels to enjoy treats and puzzles.
- Learning how to interact with a very select few older dogs, to teach them how to be in front of an older confident dog to reinforce the proper socialization.
Our goal is to help create as many confident dogs as possible while also providing tips for what to do with your puppy to make sure the behaviors stick.
Bad behaviors stem from situations experienced during a dog’s puppyhood so we want to help them grow in a positive and controlled environment. This is especially important for nervous puppies to face the situation that causes fear and anxiety in a controlled environment.
What can you do at home to help your puppy’s socializing skills?
- Exposing your puppy to new controlled environments
- Including your puppy in situations or new experiences
- Socializing with different breeds, sizes, and ages.
