Play and Learn is currently only open to dogs that have attended Puppy Day School or dogs that have attended group classes and have instructor permission.
Doggie daycare can be a great outlet for dogs with lots of energy, but it often comes with some drawbacks. Often daycare dogs don't get to practice their manners throughout the day, learn bad habits when around other dog friends, and regress on their housetraining. None of this is helpful!
Our Play and Learn program is designed to give you the benefits of dog daycare while avoiding the problems that go along with it. So how do we do that??
During Play and Learn days your dog will get to spend the day in well-supervised groups playing with a few carefully matched playmates, learning to listen and interact appropriately with our trainers, and having unique, enriching socialization experiences to boost their confidence. They will have group training sessions throughout the day to ensure that all those manners you worked so hard to have are well-maintained!
As our school is run by a veterinarian and certified professional dog trainers, you'll have the peace of mind knowing your puppy is safe in great hands. Our entire facility is designed for the health and safety of your puppy.

Play and Learn
Every puppy will make at least a few friends! We carefully match puppies by size, age, and temperment to ensure this is a positive, confidence building experience for all puppies.
Overtired puppies are no fun! Just like children (and adults if we are honest with ourselves), puppies often are the worst behaved when they are too tired. This usually is manifested with unwanted behaviors such as biting, mouthing, tugging on clothes, and chewing. By ensuring your puppy gets age appropriate naptimes throughout the day, we can avoid a lot of those unwanted behaviors and send you home with a satisfied, but not ill-behaved, puppy.
We want your puppy to be well-behaved without you having to nag her all the time. This means that she needs have self control (as opposed to control imposed by the human).
We take the safety of your puppy as our first priority. Our entire facility is desgined with safety in mind.
Our staff really know their stuff! You can rest assured your puppy is getting the best care and training possible.
Play and Learns do not have any follow-up lessons included in their packages. If you are struggling with your puppy's behavior, we suggest enrolling him in our Puppy Day School program. If your puppy is too old for school (over 6 months old) private lessons or group classes can help you get back on track!
We take pride in teaching all of our puppies to enjoy their crates and to relax quietly and comfortably when it isn't their turn to play. We often have a whole room full of crated puppies who are all resting quietly.
