Puppy Best Start - Vandaila Location

Tuesdays & Thursdays 

9:00 AM - 3:30 PM (drop off/pick up during open hours)

Dogs 8 weeks to 6 mos

Trainer run puppy daycare program designed to develop puppies into the mentally & emotionally healthiest dogs they can be through a play based enrichment training program. We build social skills, handler focus, recall, leash skills, emotional regulation, arousal management, impulse control and that general suite of life skills. Dogs alternate rest/play & learn. 



Tuesdays & Thursdays 

9:00 AM - 3:30 PM (drop off/pick up during open hours)

Dogs 6 mos to 2.5 years

Daycare within a daycare with the specific developmental needs of adolescent dogs in mind. We have small, trainer supervised play groups where we engage in play-based training and handler focused training to develop good social/emotional skills, leash skills and recall skills.


It is right for dogs who do have a desire to socialize, and the families prefer a small group enrichment program or dogs who become overstimulated in a large group daycare environment. Dogs have a balanced amount of play and rest. 


Confidence & Friendship Club


9:00 AM - 3:30 PM (drop off/pick up during open hours)

A small group daycare offering infused with enrichment such as scent games, movement puzzles and more. Great for dogs who have a desire to socialize but get overwhelmed in a large group setting or are dog selective. In some cases we do remedial socialization. Contact Anne or Wendy to discuss remedial socialization. Dogs have a balanced amount of play and rest and are paired with well matched playmates 1:1 or in small groups. 

Puppy Best Start

Building the best dog they can be!

Did you know your puppy's brain is under construction? The work you do now can shape your dogs temperament for a lifetime. Of course your puppy will play and learn at camp! But that is just the frosting on the cake!

Puppy Best Start is the GOLD STANDARD in puppy camps. We use the very latest research in brain development to take advantage of your puppy's sensitive period to develop the best temperament and behavior your dog can have! If you want the best for your dog, our puppy camp is the only place to begin!
