Day School
Day School
Dog Day School is similar to Montessori Preschool for children, where your dog will learn, socialise and play. Students will arrive at school each morning to participate in a structured day according to the curriculum that they are enrolled to.
At our campus, dogs will get their daily physical exercises like a walk, play or run, but they will also get to be exercised mentally. Mental challenges help make your dog smart and intelligent while keeping her from getting bored and destructive. These mental challenges comes in a form of learning new skills and tricks that are fun and useful.
Who will benefit from Day School:
People who need help in training their dogs
People who need help to exercise and socialise their dogs
Anyone who wants to stimulate their dogs mind through enrichment activities
MORE ABOUT OUR CLASS
New students need to complete one of our group/private training programme before they can join our Day School to ensure all our students have the same foundation of life and social skills.
Extra Curriculum Activities can be added to the curriculum during Day School and can run from one to four weeks consecutively, depending on the programme that the dog enrolled to. The programme can be customised to fit the dog’s behavioural and training needs. Owners will attend individual 20-minute transfer lesson every one to two weeks. The Extra Curriculum will depend on the assessment result and what the dog parent would like to achieve.
Only Alumni from any of our training programmes -with temperaments that are suitable for school environment- are eligible to enrol to our Day School which will cover a set of basic activities and training to maintain the training that they have previously received. There will be no transfer lesson for this.

Requirement
Dog students have to pass a thorough temperament test

Alumni who has completed group classes and/or at least six private lessons are eligible to enrol to Day School (subjected to temperament assessment and placement trial)
Dog students should be updated with their core DHLPP vaccination specifically on DHP (Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus). Dogs does not have to be vaccinated every year as long as they can prove they still have immunity by sending titer test result indicating the dog still have immunity for Distemper, Parvovirus and Adenovirus.
Kennel cough (Bordetella) and leptospirosis vaccine are not compulsory as they are not part of the core vaccinations and has been known to cause some severe side effects but you can opt to give your dog the mentioned vaccination.
HOW DOES IT WORK :
Step 1: Temperament Assessment. We will assess your dog or puppy’s behaviour to ensure he or she is suitable for Day School. If your dog is shy or have any behaviour problems, you maybe advised to take Private Lessons to reach a level where he can be comfortable in a Day School environment.
Step 2: Placement Test. The placement test is a session to determine which play and learning group will your pup or dog fits into. It will take about 15-30 minutes. This also helps your pup or dog to ease into a school environment without getting overwhelmed.
Step 3: First day at Day School. If your dog is settling well, your dog can attend the full Day School. The teacher will let you know if your dog should attend a shorter duration of Day School first so that your pup or dog can transition to school environment smoothly. You could bring your dog yourself or our school bus can fetch him/ her to our campus.
Step 4: First month at Day School. Please note that the initial temperament assessment is not a 100% guarantee. After a month, our teachers will assess how your dog does in school. If the teachers found behaviour challenges that affect the dynamic and safety of the classes during Day School, we may re-assess your dog’s suitability for Day School or may move your dog to a more suitable class at any time.
