Our San Diego Puppy Training FAQs:
How long does my dog need to attend Prep School?

Three to six consecutive months is recommended as a minimum. Prep School is not a quick fix. It is meant to instill lasting effects. In order to do this, Students need the time to both learn the material and master it.

What is the best age for my dog to start Prep School?

The best age for ANY dog to start training in a facility setting is 4 months as their brains are still relatively spongey and the education tends to leave the biggest impression. However, there is also no WORST age to start training. Students start Prep School at 10 mos, 2 years, or 5 years and STILL obtain huge lasting benefits.
