Welcome to our Puppy Kindergarten program, for puppies age 2 to 6 months. Each session includes a half a day of daycare, plus :30 minutes of basic commands training and socialization with other puppies.
Puppy Kindergarten runs every weekday Monday - Friday from 9am - 12pm. Drop off between 7-9am and pick up between 3-4pm. Bring your puppy as many days as you like, but we recommend 2-3x/week for best results. You decide what days you bring your pup, based on your schedule, not ours.
Puppy Kindergarten is comprehensive and affordable. The younger you start them the better. The curriculum includes training them to walk properly on leash, heel, sit, stay, down, come, wait, leave it, drop it and go to place. Our goal is to have them learn all of this by the end of the sessions. But their success depends on how much you reinforce these commands when the dog is home.
Kindergarten also includes lots of supervised puppy socialization, which is often underestimated in terms of its importance. All the experts agree that socializing your puppy with other pups right from the start creates a happy, healthy adult dog.
Tanner's offers packages of 12, 16 or 20 sessions of Puppy Kindergarten. Costs are listed under Pricing tab.
Age appropriate vaccinations required. Not-yet-spayed/neutered puppies welcome.
First step is to bring your puppy in for a Meet & Greet, then you can purchase and schedule your Kindergarten package. To get started, click the MAKE A RES tab above and register yourself and your puppy. Then request your Meet & Greet on the registration site and upload your vaccine records. If our next M&G appointment is too far into the future for you, call the office and we will squeeze you into our schedule.
We look forward to meeting you & your puppy, and welcoming you to our most popular program yet!
Does your adolescent doggy require behavior modification? Are the unwanted behaviors popping up everyday, with no end in sight? Then you should enroll him (or her) in Tanner's exclusive Middle School program.
Middle School was designed specifically for dogs age 6-24 months, that are exhibiting unwanted behaviors in and out of the home. Perhaps they're just not listening anymore, or haven't mastered the basic puppy commands yet, or they've picked up new unwanted behaviors that require immediate correction. Either way, Middle School addresses all of these issues before they get out of hand.
Middle School includes a full day of daycare, plus :30 minutes of private customized training during the day. Sessions take place every weekday Monday - Friday. Drop off as early as 7am and pick up as late as 7pm. We recommend coming 2-3 days/week depending on your schedule and the needs of the dog.
Tanner's offers 3 package options -- 12, 16 or 20 sessions. Costs are listed under Pricing tab.
Current rabies, distemper and bordetella vaccines required for Middle School. Non-spayed or neutered dogs welcome up to one year of age.
Registration required to enroll in Middle School. Click the Make A Res tab above & follow the instructions on becoming a new customer. After you register, you can schedule your Meet & Greet & upload vaccines on our registration site.
We look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve a happy, healthy, well-trained pup!
