Daycare & Train Program (available at all Doggieland locations):

 Life Skills 101 (in daycare training)

This program is intended for dogs that need some work on basic manners. The focus is on teaching your pet to learn key commands to help them listen to you. We focus on teaching your dog how to calm themselves down, make good behaviour choices, and respond to direction from you. It includes:
–          12 half-day training sessions

–          Sessions are held twice a week (six weeks total)

–          Multiple private, one-on-one training sessions each day, combined with rest and play sessions in between

–          Six half-hour “go home” lessons at the end of each week upon pick-up, to teach you what your dog has learned and give you the skills you need to continue practising at home

–          Behaviours covered include, but are not limited to:

o   Walking nicely on leash

o   Basic Commands (Sit, Stay, Down)

o   Leaving things alone (no picking up garbage in the street or stealing shoes at home)

o   Polite greetings at the front door (no jumping up or excessive barking)

o   Relaxing while at liberty (no more demanding attention!)

o   Come Foundation Training, to prepare for a solid come-when-called command

This program costs $1,900.00 and includes the cost of the 12 half-day’s of daycare.  (For an additional price, these days can be extended to a full day of daycare).  To sign-up for this program or to obtain more details, please email training@doggieland.ca
