Puppy Program

Canine to Five's Puppy Program is designed to help your new puppy grow into a socialized, balanced, and fun loving companion. In collaboration with the Certified Professional Dog Trainers at K9 Turbo Training, we have developed a structured socialization program that goes far beyond daycare for our youngest pack members.

Everyday Puppy Program

Each day we offer a structured curriculum that focuses on socialization to dogs, people, different surfaces, smells and experiences, structured toy time, outside time to support your potty training efforts (weather permitting), training item of the day, and scent of the day for added enrichment!

We launched this program because we are committed to setting your puppy up for a happy lifetime of play, daycare, and healthy socialization. Whether you choose to bring your dog to daycare once a week or every day of the week, we will do all we can to assist you in teaching your lifelong pal.

Puppy Curriculum

A weekly curriculum that focuses on socialization to sights, sounds and experiences that your puppy will need to navigate as an adult, including people in wheelchairs, using walkers, wearing big coats, hats, veterinary equipment such as stethoscopes, people in lab coats, and more! Early socialization and desensitization leads to decreased fears and anxieties down the road.

Dog Socialization

Supervised and structured play sessions with dogs of varying sizes, ages, and play styles focuses on teaching puppies how to play appropriately with other dogs, how to manage conflict without using aggression, and when to take breaks in play!

Resource Guarding Prevention

Your pup will learn to share resources like toys, food, and attention with other dogs and humans. Puppyhood is a critical stage to develop this tolerance and helps prevent resource guarding later in life.

Crate Training

Puppies require an average of 15-20 hours a day of sleep and need to take breaks in order to prevent them from becoming over aroused and overstimulated (hellloooo toddlers with no naps!). For this reason, we give puppies naps in airline crates every two hours, which creates a den for your puppy to make his/her own and assists you with your crate training at home! Fitted with with comfy blankets, beds, calming spray and a treat, your puppy will love this time to rest in between play sessions!

Extra Pictures

Every day, we will have a staff member take additional pictures to show you what your dog is learning while they’re here at Canine to Five.

Requirements & Schedule

This program is for puppies 12 weeks old to 8 months. To enroll, your puppy must have received their first two sets of shots as well as their Bordetella vaccination, Rabies and the Canine Influenza Vaccine. Be sure to tell your vet at your first checkup that your dog will be spending a lot of time around other dogs. Your best deal is to bring your puppy every day Monday through Friday. Not only is this financially advantageous, but it is great socialization for your puppy.

Our puppy program curriculum runs Monday – Friday and will start at 8:00 a.m. Although our curriculum doesn’t start until mid-morning, you can drop off your puppy as soon as we open at 6:30 a.m, and our latest pick up time is 8:00 p.m.

We recommend that you bring your puppy lunch. Please send a single serving lunch in a clearly labeled bag or container. Additionally, your puppy will have access to fresh, cold water during each structured playtime. To aide in training, your puppy may also be given treats throughout the day, which we will provide. Be be sure to let us know if your puppy has any food allergies or sensitivities.

Thoroughly impressed! With a new puppy, I am so hesitant with putting her into a Daycare. However, after our puppies first day, Canine to Five won us over. The facility is top of the line, the staff is beyond friendly and thorough. I appreciate their open communication and friendliness and I look forward to developing continued relationships! My Go-To group! Please continue doing what you are doing!
