Yes, we keep the training facility toasty 65-70 in the winter and a cool 60-65 in the summer.
The day always begins with individual walk & potty time. We then move dogs out to fenced areas or get started with training. Some dogs require multiple sets of one on one training, some need the distraction of others, some need extra exercise, some need down time. Once we assess your dog, we accommodate each dog's needs individually. We do not feed breakfast, rather we dispense a small portion of the daily ration during training. This helps to establish increased focus. We train throughout the day up until feeding time around 6:00. Rest after feeding is very important to ensure safe digestion. We end the day with more potty walks before bedtime! Lights out between 9-10pm.
While we do allow compatible puppies to play with each other under supervision, we do not feel it is helpful for adults during their stay unless they are housemates.
Yes we do! We try to offer less intense training for the dogs. (Some require extra practice for stubborn habits) Our weekend staff takes the dogs for loose leash walks on the farm & trail.
Drive down to the bottom of our hill and park by the horse fencing. You will see the office sign on the side of the building.
Unfortunately we do not allow visits because it causes a setback in the training. Our first priority is to establish a relationship with your dog after drop off. If you visit, they focus on looking for you, rather than us.
You may pay with cash, check, venmo, or credit card. We can invoice you prior to your visit.
