Puppy Prep School Program

Day Training for your puppy to get started on the right paw!

Designed for puppies (under 5 months) to get a headstart on obedience, socialization, and potty training. Our trainers put your pup on a structured feeding and training schedule. Puppies work on learning how to relax in a crate, proper potty habits, basic obedience skills, and socialization. Simply drop your pup off in the morning and pick him up in the evening daily, Monday through Friday!

I’m so thankful that I went to PLD based on other reviews. This place is amazing. We have a chocolate lab puppy who is now not so much a puppy. He just graduated from Puppy I class and it was worth every early Saturday morning (not all classes are early on Saturdays) and every penny. Austin knows all basic commands and them some. Austin was also enrolled in their Puppy Preschool 2x a week. Between that and the weekly classes, the socialization he gets there is priceless! Being a lab he loves to chew on everything including our hands and ever since he has been attending, our hands are no longer his chew toy of choice! Playing with all the other dogs has taught him bite inhibition better than we ever could as humans. He now attends adult daycare twice a week. He loves going and usually doesn’t even pay attention to me when I drop him off. He comes home exhausted and even gets a report card.

I would HIGHLY recommend PLD for anyone who needs puppy training, puppy preschool or even adult doggie daycare. The Puppy I class was so good, we are planning to enroll him in the next level class.

In the summer of 2013, I had just adopted an 11 week old St Bernard, who was amazing, adorable, fluffy and all-around wonderful… except that she seemed to be fearfully reacting to other dogs. This was a stressful situation for a first-time puppy owner, and thank goodness a friend recommended Peace Love and Dogs! The staff were immediately concerned and attentive to my situation. My puppy went through Puppy Preschool, Puppy 1 and 2 obedience courses, as well as individual workshops focused on loose leash walking, stay and come. She even passed the Canine Good Citizen test in October! She is now 11 months old and a truly wonderful companion. Our newest addition to the family, a 6 month old St Bernard, is working on her Puppy 2 obedience class, and we can’t wait to see what’s next on the schedule.

Beyond their incredible puppy training programs, their adult-dog daycare is awesome. My pups (who are now full-fledged daycare dogs) think PLD is the best place in the world, and I do too when I get to relax at night with happily snoozing Saints at my feet! I could not imagine a better experience with dog daycare and training than I have had at Peace Love and Dogs!

They are the best in dog training and dog daycare. Different from a lot of daycare places, they have a day schedule for the dogs there. They have been trained with good behaviors and have fun with their friends. My dog loves going there every time and always has a great time there with his friends. I attended their evening training program. It was a great program. Stephanie explained to all of us dog’s behavior and how to behave them in a good way. Then everyone  practiced with their dogs and the staff was there helping us too. It was also a great family time. We love it and Lucky loves it too!

People there all have a sweet and big heart. They also help a lot to rescue abused dogs and lost dogs in the street. My dog Lucky was abused by his previous parents and rescued by PLD. She saved him and trained him so good. We feel extremely lucky we can meet her and Lucky in our life! It is definitely the BEST place for you and your dog!
