Adult Day School

Adult Day School

We empathise with your need for some time off training, yet desire for someone to continue their training. This is why we are establishing an adult day school! It is in recognition of the difficulty to keep manners in tip-top shape and to modify certain types of behavior.

Adult Day School provides a venue fitted to perfection for training, socialization, and play, with a healthy routine for the dogs.

During Adult Day School, your dog will be trained efficiently and effectively in a systematic step-by-step approach, towards resolving behavior concerns.

Your dog will also learn new tricks and participate in mentally stimulating exercises to engage the mind. The Day School’s program also includes reinforcing calmness and manners as they may encounter externally.

How to get started

Book a private consultation with our trainer

Arrange a private consultation with our resident trainer to allow us to better understand your training objectives. This will allow the trainer to customize the training to your individual needs. We will propose the best optimal solutions to your problems or needs.

Assessment

An initial assessment of your dog will be conducted to find out more about your dog’s behaviors and whether our day school is suitable for your dog. Where day school is not appropriate, alternative options will be recommended.

Placement test

A placement test will be conducted to find out which group is most suitable for your dog in order to ensure optimal learning experience. This is to ensure that your dog will not be overly stressed in our facility and will settle well into our training program.

1st day in school

As it sometimes might take a little while for the dog to settle, we will take an entire day to assess the suitability of your dog in our day school. Should the dog be overwhelmed by the environment or by your absence, we will then suggest a shorter day school or other feasible training plans to better help them settle. As for transportation, you can opt to drop off the dog or choose to use our preferred transport vendor.

1st month in school

In order for us to execute what’s intended for all dogs, all dogs will be assessed after their first month for their school performance. In all fairness, should we feel that your dog pose a challenge to the class' performance, we reserve all rights to move your dog to a more suitable class at our preferred time.
