The Results of Prep School
More Than Teaching a Dog New Tricks
Humans are constantly underestimating their dog’s intelligence and abilities. With Prep School, we keep students on their toes with a curriculum that changes each week AND the addition of extracurricular brain games like basic tricks and bonding through toy play.
A Strategic Program Made for Real Success
We track each student’s progress in a variety of ways, and you can expect results such as:
- Proficiency in 9 basic dog obedience commands
- Respect for other dogs, as well as a knowledge of their social cues and boundaries
- Increased confidence around different people, dogs, and situations
- Improved responsiveness to dog training commands around distractions
- Impulse control and good decision making skills in a social environment
- Self-calming mechanisms in high arousal situations
Prep School FAQs
What are the benefits of Pack Method Prep’s small student to teacher ratios?
Our ratio of 8–12 canines to one certified teacher and one teaching assistant allows dogs to be challenged with their peers as distractions while still leaving room for individualized instruction when needed.
The concentrated instruction is then supplemented with guided off-leash training (for socialization and exercise) and naptime (for mental stability and growth).
Do I come with my dog to Prep School?
Nope. You drop your dog off in the morning and pick them up in the evening JUST like human school!
What are the drop off and pick up times?
Morning drop off takes place from 7:30am-9am. Early drop off is available for an additional fee.
Afternoon pick up takes place from 4:30pm-5pm. Aftercare is available from 5pm-6:30 for an additional fee.
What is the schedule?
Prep School’s schedule is Monday, Wednesday, Friday. Included private tutor sessions take place on campus on the weekends.
