Puppy Programs

Let us do the hard work for you!

Puppies under 5 months need regular socialization and training.  We've got options to fit your budget and needs - from online classes to a full program where we train your puppy during the day, your dog's socialization and safety are a priority for us.



Taught by our Certified Dog Trainer, our Puppy Preschool program is a 4 or 6 week puppy training and socialization curriculum designed for young puppies aged 8-20 weeks.

Puppies this age are in a critical stage of development for their social and life skills, and we know life can be busy so our program ensures consistency in training your young puppy during the day, and teaching you the skills in a weekly class with your puppy so you can both be on the same page.  Let us do the hard work for you, and you can enjoy a happy puppy at home!

Our Puppy Preschool curriculum includes:

  • Daylong potty training outdoors (potty on command)

  • Daily training in our Puppy Preschool room

  • Sit, Down, Recall ("Come!"), crate training, leash walking, and greeting other dogs nicely.

  • Safe play and socialization skills

  • One-on-one training time

  • Puppy playtime 

Our program includes:

  • 2 puppy grooms

  • 4 consecutive weeks of Puppy Preschool training

Choose to add on an additional 2 weeks of Puppy Preschool training for a total of six weeks!  Get more socialization and extra training to help make your pup well rounded and socialized.

  • All puppies under 16 weeks, must start in our Puppy Daycare program before moving up to our regular Dog Daycare program.

  • Puppies can start at 8 weeks old

  • Puppies must attend at least once per week for minimum 4 weeks.

Our Puppy Daycare program includes:

  • Daylong potty training outdoors 

  • Learning to settle in a crate

  • Puppy playtime 

Which option is right for me?

Choosing a puppy program depends on your budget, commitment to training at home, and your personal goals for your puppy.  

Puppy Preschool is much more intense, but we do the hard work of training for you.  


Puppy daycare is a great option if you're able to and want to do more hands on training work yourself, and are looking more for socialization rather than training.  



  • All dogs require current vaccinations for Distemper/Parvovirus/Parainfluenza.

  • All vaccination records must be received prior to your dog’s first visit.

  • Clients must keep Gus’s Pet Resort informed of any medical or behavioural changes in their pet.
