Houston Bark Park Academy:
Training & Enrichment
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.
Teachers use positive reinforcement to ensure a fun learning experience.
We reinforce and strengthen commands, such as sit, down, stay, come.
More advanced students will have added distraction, distance, and duration to work on!
We focus on dog's physical & mental well-being in a smaller group setting.
Enrichment activities include body awareness exercises, scent work, and puzzle activities
Some fun tricks we teach include: jumping through hoops, weaving through poles, etc.
one on one attention
Academy classes are 12 dogs max to ensure each dog gets personal attention and care.
Sessions include actives including trick training and arts & crafts!
Teachers send home daily report cards!
