PUPPY

This is the most important time in your dog's life.

Puppyhood is the most crucial developmental stage in a dog’s life. During the first few months of a puppy’s life, they learn to accept and enjoy the company of other dogs and people. They need to be exposed to all kinds of stimuli inside and outside of your home. They have a willingness to please and are easily taught basic behaviors.

Continue training and socialization through the challenging adolescent puppy stage, and you will emerge with a well-adjusted, social, addition to your family when your dog reaches maturity.

Don’t miss the opportunity to train and socialize during this very important time of your dog’s life. MuttSchool offers a comprehensive puppy package at 20% off our normal pricing. The package includes:

  • Puppy Kindergarten
  • Grades 1-3: Earn the AKC Canine Good Citizen for your puppy
  • Set of 5 private lessons to work on problem areas at home like counter surfing, nipping, door dashing, etc.

Start training with MuttSchool ten days after your puppy’s first round of shots!

SAVE 20% WITH OUR PUPPY PACKAGE — $725

“Veterinarians specializing in behavior recommend that owners take advantage of every safe opportunity to expose young puppies to the great variety of stimuli that they will experience in their lives. Enrolling in puppy classes prior to three months of age can be an excellent means of improving training, strengthening the human-animal bond, and socializing puppies in an environment where risk of illness can be minimized.”

First Grade

In addition to training behaviors like sit, down, stand and walking nicely on leash, First Grade teaches your dog how much fun it can be to work for you as we lay the foundation to learning more advanced training skills. In First Grade, we focus on establishing lines of communication between you and your dog. You will learn about dog body language and how to change challenging behaviors that are happening at home. You may be surprised at how readily your dog will want to learn new things with our positive reinforcement training methods.

In Second Grade, our focus is establishing manners so you have a better behaved dog both at home and away.

No time to train your puppy?

We understand! Consistently training a dog is a time commitment. That is why we have options where we do the work and you get to enjoy a well-mannered and trained puppy. Let us do the training and then follow up with a private lesson to transition the training back to you.

Day Training

With our popular DAY TRAINING program, you drop your dog off at our facility in the morning and pick up by 6pm. Your MuttSchool instructors train your dog as you go about your busy day. In addition to training, our program is designed to provide activities to stimulate your dog both mentally and physically while reinforcing social skills and polite behavior. This is a fabulous way for busy dog parents to meet the physical, mental and social needs of their dogs.

Quantity discounts available when you purchase more than 10 sessions.

ENROLL — $48 for FULL DAY TRAINING
ENROLL — $30 for DAY CAMP (manners and supervised play)

Boarding School

Send your dog to boarding school! Similar to day training except your dog stays overnight at Wildcat Pet Resort and spends the day training at MuttSchool. This is an option if you just want to “quick start” your dog’s training or want your dog professionally trained and returned to you.

 

Individual days: $65/day –  Let us brush up on your dog’s foundation skills while you are out of town. This is suggested for current customers only. There is no transition lesson following individually scheduled days.

Quick Start: 1-2 weeks for $970 – your dog will start working toward the skills on the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. In two weeks, we will work on a couple select behaviors. You will discuss what you’d like us to work on with your MuttSchool trainer prior to dropping off at WCPR. Price includes one transition lesson when you pick up your dog at the end of it’s stay. It is always recommended that you continue with training either through group classes or private lessons after the “Quick Start” board and train so you can learn what your dog has learned.

Good Dog: 30 days for $2,070 – During your dog’s month-long stay, we will be working toward passing the AKC CGC, or  training specific skills you’d like the dog to perform. We will want you to join us for a transition lesson following the first two weeks, and then again at the end of your dog’s stay. During the final transition lesson, we will have you take your dog through the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. Following board and train, we recommend that you continue with training either through group classes or private lessons so you can learn what your dog has learned.

Behavioral boarding school: Price and time varies depending on severity of behavior – If your dog is struggling with a challenging behavior, our behavioral boarding school may be just what you are looking for. Your dog MUST be approved by MuttSchool and WCPR for behavioral boarding. Please contact MuttSchool for an evaluation prior to signing up.

 

Since the kennel space needs to be booked through Wildcat Pet Resort, you must contact them at 785-539-1515 to reserve your dog’s board and train space.

Don’t forget to provide training treats for your dog during board and train. We have a variety of great treats at MuttSchool for purchase or you may bring your own (no dry biscuits or kibble, please). If you forget or we run out of what you bring, you will be assessed $8.49 plus tax per day (a 1 lb roll of Happy Howies dog treats).
