Top-Rated South Bay Puppy School
Welcoming a puppy into your life should be a joyous event, but it can quickly become overwhelming if you don't have the tools you need to provide your puppy with the experiences and training it needs to succeed.
Our Harmony School program was developed to take full advantage of the first four months of a puppy's life when they are best able to quickly learn and retain information. Our veterinarian approved program and facility is able to accommodate puppies as young as 8 weeks old.
Harmony School is an intensive training program ideal for puppies under 4 month of age. Our goal is to create the best possible family dog. We take full advantage of the critical socialization period (first 4 months of life). This is a unique time in a dog's life where they can adjust quickly to new things and can use that information later on in life. Most behavioral problems that arise in adult dogs are due to lack of socialization. At Harmony School we positively associate puppies to dogs, people, objects, sounds, textures and handling. Giving puppies the best possible start in life. Families with dogs in our day school need to continue working with their dogs at home. Harmony School students receive one month (4 sessions) of in-person small group classes as part of their tuition.
Dogs over the age of 4 months must be evaluated and approved to attend Harmony School. School Hours are Monday - Friday, 9 am - 2 pm. Our daily schedule will depend on the needs of the dogs in our care, but will always include the following:
· Interactive Play
· Solo play time
· Crate time
· Potty training
Because this is a school and consistency is most important for any training. We require that dogs spend 3 consecutive weeks (15 days) with us when first starting out. After that, and as long as they continue coming to dog only group classes at the center, dogs may be scheduled at will.
