Are you looking for a little extra support in your dogs training? You're doing the lessons but you need some extra help during the week to make sure you meet your training goals, or you'd like to just take a little bit of the work off your plate. Maybe the training is going great, but you'd like some extra enrichment for your pup, or a visit during the day while you are at work or running errands? With our supportive training options we may have just the thing for you!
Our supplemental services are designed to work alongside lessons you are doing with your trainer, supporting ongoing training that is happening at home. We have three different options of supplemental services; Day Training, Decompression Walks and Double Up! Get all the details on these options below!
Day Training is a great option for the dog who needs a little extra training time during the week. During Day Training we will focus on the goals set during your conversations with our trainers, whether that is training time at home or focusing on goals in real world locations. It can be difficult for most owners to work on those goals while fewer people are out and about, and we are more able to work at non-normal times in those spaces.
Each session, your trainer will come to your home and work with your dog for an hour. Your trainer will come between the hours of 10am and 4pm, so that your dog gets a nice break in their day while you are at work, and will determine the best location based on your dogs needs and the available time. It could be a local park, a nearby store, working in the neighborhood, or just around the house. If your trainer selects to go to another location driving time will be limited to 30 minutes total.
A decompression walk is a great slice of enrichment in your dog's day. We spend one hour with your pup, walking on a mini adventure to a nearby greenbelt or park. We will keep the drive time under 15 minutes total, to give your pup as much time to decompress as possible. They will get to explore, be a dog, and relax while we enjoy the outdoors together.
Before we leave we make sure that your dog has fresh water. If you would like them to have a snack, or lunch, we are happy to give it to them as we head out the door.
Want us to walk more than one dog? We can do that!
If your dogs enjoy their walks together, there is an extra charge of $5 per additional dog on the walk. For safety reasons, if you would like us to take more than two dogs together on a walk we do require an additional handler. The additional handler charge is $20.
If you would like your dogs to each get their own time but do not want to schedule two separate walks, we can do that too! We will split the time between your pups and add on a little extra time to make up for the switching out. For this there is an additional charge of $15 per extra walk.
Daycare is a great way to get a break from your pup but sometimes it's not the best option, especially for our young puppies or our dogs who need very specific friends. Day School is a great option for those dogs who need a little extra consideration and for all other dogs who maybe need a little extra fun in their day!
During Day School your dog will get to play with other appropriate dogs who are present in our trainers home, and will take part in training sessions that are scattered throughout the day. They will also get structured nap time and yummy chews during break times!
After your dogs day at Day School you will receive cute photos as well as a video update going over your dogs training for the day.
Day School is available on Wednesdays with limited spots open each week. Full days and half days are available, with a half day being less than five hours.
Day Training & Decompression Walk Combo
Get the best of both worlds, and a very tired pup, by combining our Day Training and Decompression Walk services into a 90 minutes - 2 hour event for your pup! We will start with an hour of Day Training with your pup, followed by an hour long Decompression Walk! We have a built in buffer of 30 minutes to allow for driving time and transition time between the two services. Your trainer will decide on the best location for both the Day Training session and Decompression Walk based on your goals, conversations you have had with them, and your dogs needs on the specific day.
Your trainer will come between the hours of 9am and 4pm, so that your dog gets a nice break in their day while you are working. Before we leave we make sure that your dog has fresh water. If you would like them to have a snack, or lunch, we are happy to give it to them as we head out the door.
Want us to work and walk more than one dog? We can do that! Training time can either be split, or shared between dogs, or we can add additional training or walking time for an additional cost. Just contact us and we can go over specific options and pricing!
If you would like to set this service up for more than two dogs, please contact us to figure out logistics and pricing. For safety reasons, if you would like us to take more than two dogs together on a walk we do require an additional handler.
It is important to remember that any training without you is a jump start. There will still be work to do when your pup is home with you to reinforce the training and make sure that everything transfers. Pairing lessons with your supplemental services will help with that and we are happy to continue to support you as much as we can to make sure that everything transfers smoothly. If you are concerned about the transfer process, make sure to let us know and we can help you come up with additional plans to make it as smooth as possible.
