Our educational enrichment based day school keeps your dog busy with fun training exercises while your at work and keeps the foundation that was started during your previous training at Endeavour K9 while maintaining or assisting you to obtain your training goals.
Whether it’s mental stimulation through training, lessons in being calm or confidence building. We provide a balance of healthy activities for them as an outlet but also create an off switch that serves you well in any aspect of home life.
However, what’s different from many programs is that in addition to basic obedience cues, we recognize that dogs need to learn frustration tolerance and impulse control. We address this through the daily schedule of training, playing, resting, tethering during downtime, purposeful handling, and teaching all dogs to give eye contact and wait at thresholds before proceeding.
In addition, each dog is taught to walk polity on leash, settle quietly on a tether during rest periods, to come when called and eliminate outdoors. The entire culture of the school is designed around creating a habit of well-behaved dogs who demonstrate manners.
We keep “free-play” to a minimum to help promote positive- neutral behaviour around other dogs. This is not a free for all play all day which can lead to hyper dogs and in turn can lead to many behavioural issues. This helps hyper dogs learn to calm down and nervous dogs to be more confident.
We spend individual time with each dog training them as well as in a group setting, and they will also have crated rest times.
This is NOT a typical Doggie Day Care.
