Welcome to

The Happy Puppy School

 

Congratulations on your new puppy!

 

This new chapter is going to be full of love, puppy kisses, and tail wags! We have created The Happy Puppy School because we believe in helping your puppy grow up to be a happy and confident dog! While training is important... the most important part of puppyhood is healthy socialization.

 

Your puppy’s socialization window is SHORT. The part of the brain responsible for socialization finishes developing between 16 and 18 weeks. It is crucial to socialize your puppy before that window closes in order to avoid potential behavioral problems down the line. While your puppy is in our care, not only will they be socializing with other dogs, but we will expose them to all sorts of exciting things that they will likely experience in the real world including sounds, hats, textures, bikes, skateboards, all kinds of people, etc. 

Playtime is also a key component to help your puppy develop into a happy and confident dog! Since The Happy Puppy School takes place where we hold regular daycare, your pup will be able to have playtime with very friendly, polite, and fully vaccinated adult dogs.

We have worked with most of these adult dogs since they were puppies, ensuring we know them well as your puppy's safety is our utmost priority! Limiting your puppy's playtime and socialization solely to other puppies, like many other programs do, makes it difficult for your puppy to learn proper play skills. Having your puppy play with adult dogs of all ages and sizes teaches them healthy and polite play manners!

Let's Talk Training!

We only use positive reinforcement training tools. Using positive reinforcement training helps your puppy not only want to learn, but also keeps them happy and motivated to work with you! Our goal at The Happy Puppy School is to teach your puppy all of the essential cues:

Sit,

Stay,

Come,

Go to your bed,

Leave it,

and more!

In addition to learning cues, we will give you and your puppy a jump start on leash work, potty training & crate training.

Who Can Join??

We take puppies as young as 9 weeks, up to 1 year

They must have the following minimum vet requirements:

at least 2 rounds of DHPP vaccines,

Bordetella vaccine,

a negative fecal test for Giardia

and they must be on flea prevention.

(Once age appropriate, they must have Rabies, Canine Influenza, and Leptospirosis vaccines.)

What’s The Schedule Like? 

You will drop off and pick up your puppy on 

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday

between 7:30 am and 6 pm.

Your pup can come up to 3 days each week! 

Do You Do All The Work??

Since it is very important for YOU to work with your puppy, you will receive

personalized training videos, tips and tricks throughout the time that your pup is with us!

This will give you an opportunity to see what we've been working on, allow you to keep up with training at home, and have all your questions answered by our certified trainers for the duration of the puppy school program.

One last added benefit to mention...

While your puppy is regularly attending The Happy Puppy School, A Bark Idea naturally becomes your pup's home away from home!  Since your pup will be familiar with us from being here as a puppy, daycare, and boarding will be like visiting their second home.

Here at A Bark Idea, we pride ourselves on getting to know each dog as if they were our own! While in our care, your pup can continue training and maintain healthy friendships 

with all their puppy pals!
