Training & Enrichment

About the Program

This daycare platform was developed for dogs that thrive in smaller social settings and enjoy doing activities.  Rather than expecting these pups to self-regulate, this platform focuses on engagement and reinforcing good behavior.  Daycare attendants fill the roles of teachers and guide dogs in different activities such as scent games, impulse control games, and an emphasis on rewarding good behaviors.
