Wags Day School Training Program
Once you become a regular Daycare client, we offer some extra Training perks!
Our Day School program is ideal for busy dog owners and their dogs! This program is wonderful for those looking to reinforce previous training or even those who need their pooch to learn the basics from scratch! After an evaluation, we provide your dog with the opportunity to socialize, play, learn and thrive. Throughout your dogs day of playing in the pack, one of our trainers will take them aside for a one-on-one training session.
Every dog has their own needs, personality and threshold. This is why, after a brief consultation, we construct a personalized training plan based on you and your dog’s needs.

Once your plan is completed, our trainer will meet with your to discuss the progress and how to continue practicing at home.
