1. Puppy Head Start

Puppy Day Care

We love puppies and specialize in raising them! Puppies in our Head Start Program explore different surfaces,tunnels, toys and equipment just for puppies designed to build confidence and optimize socialization during the critical Socialization Period.  The Puppy Head Start Program is designed to
provide puppies 5 months and under the foundation for becoming stable, loving members of the family. We utilize the same handling and care techniques as Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael, CA.

Puppy Boarding is always available! We accept puppies 8 weeks and up for both Puppy Day Care and Puppy Boarding

Our Puppy Day Care program combines:

  • Safe socialization
  • Basic Beginning Obedience
  • Nap Times and Crate Training
  • Skilled handling focusing on muzzle, paw, and tail handling in a gentle positive manner

We also provide Mentor Dogs to further teach puppies appropriate canine behavior-they are better at it than we are!  Any rough puppy play is curtailed gently to ensure all interactions remain positive and fun, never scary or overwhelming.  An electronic report card is provided informing you who your pups friends were, any learning moments that occurred, lost baby teeth and any issues.  We are proud to declare that most of our current Mentor Dogs were once Puppy Head Start students!
