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.  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.

Example of an Academy day 

6:30 am - 7:00 am: Early Drop off 
Academy pups can either join free play groups (if approved) or wait in their enclosures before the day begins!

7:30 am - 9:00 am: Morning Recess 
Academy kids are encouraged to socialize and group activities are conducted.  Evaluations are also conducted at this time

9:00 am - 11:00 am : Individual Time
Each pup is given one on one time to work on personal goals and partake in different enrichment activities. 

11:00 am - 1:30 pm : Nap Time 
All academy pups are given puzzles (varying daily) to work on while they are in for nap time. 

1:30pm - 2:30 pm : Recess & Field Trip 
Check out the academy pups take a field trip to the small dog side to access the bubble and foam cannon!  

2:30 pm - 5:00 pm : Individual Time
