Where Care and Training Intersect Our unique program offers your dog the ability to experience daycare and regular training, without all of the associated hazards of high-stimulation play, and cost of training. As an IAABC accredited trainer, our owner, Kara Dello Russo, dreamed of working with groups of dogs regularly, without the high cost of training sessions, and lack of consistency. Our day school structure solves the problem- the lack of time and knowledge for owners to provide the necessary mental and physical exercise every dog needs to feel fulfilled and, ultimately, be a great family member. We require weekly commitments in our training packages to lessen the chances of dog-dog altercations and communicable illness. By enrolling your dog in our 1 year training program, we can help you to see true progress in training. Don't worry... We've broken the training program into weekly payments, so you can choose the right program for your dog to attend a year of school at a cost within your budget. Of course, proper play will be available in abundance, as our school is a place for social dog-friends. Our absolute maximum capacity is 40 dogs per day, and we are dedicated to low staff-dog ratios of 1:10, at absolute maximum. All dogs will be required to pass a temperament test and have an introductory consultation to ensure this is the proper environment for them to succeed in our mutual goals. If your dog doesn't pass the introductory consultation, have no fear! Kara's Pet Care LLC, our sister company, is happy to provide care in the comfort of your pet's own home.
