We know the first few months of a puppy’s life is the most critical time for shaping their temperament,Â character and future behavioral patterns and that 90% of a puppyâ€™s attitude about the world aroundÂ them is developed in this important time period.
We have two Puppy Programs to ensure your puppy gets off to the right start!
Puppy Preschool is a half or full day program for puppies 8-16 weeks old, where pet parents dropÂ their puppyÂ offÂ for a day ofÂ positive learning,Â socialization and fun. See “About Puppy Preschool” for full details.
Puppy Prep School is a half or full day program for puppies 16 weeks-6 months old where they continue their daily learning and fun, but we also begin introducing them to carefully selected adult fur friends to expand their social skills. See “About Puppy Prep School” for full details.

We require a first Distemper series, Bordatella (canine cough) and a negative fecal test. Please Note: There is a 7 day waiting period after acquiring the bordatella vaccine to give puppy’s little immune systems time to build immunity.
- Flat â€śquick releaseâ€ť collar. If you have any questions about whatÂ a quick release collar is, we are happy to assist. We have quick release collars available in the lobby for $10.
- A leash. Please make sure your puppy is on a leash and/or under your control (in your arms) at all times!Â
- Very, yummy soft treats broke into very small pieces and some extra kibble in labeled baggies. We use a combination of treats and kibble to make learning fun and to ensure puppies don’t get too many treats and get a tummy ache.
Full day Puppies please bring
- A lunch in a labeled baggie or container
- A blanket, one that smells like home is best!
- A chew bone/toy, one they can not break into pieces and/or eat.
Dogs Bay Puppy Preschool is a brilliant concept. As puppy parents of a breed that is very misunderstood, we wanted our little girl to get as much socialization at a young age as possible. The program has provided this and so much more! The Dogs Bay team is passionate and led by a true professional. Early education will aid our pups in being better citizens!

Puppy pre school has taught her how to behave properly around other dogs, and overcome obstacles in a way that we couldn’t have done.Â We are so grateful for Dogs Bay and the amazing team for helping shape Kina into a wonderful, well rounded dog!
Puppy preschool has been such a wonderful experience for Havoc! He has learned to play well with other puppies and older dogs. He loves the staff and is super excited when we arrive! I love that he gets to have fun with other dogs, gets lots of exercise and is being taken care of by people that love him! Thanks Dogs Bay Team!
Love, Havoc’s family
As a veterinary technician, I am always telling clients about the importance of socializing their puppy and getting their puppy used to new experiences at the age of 8 to 16 weeks. The best way that they can do this is through programs like Dogs Bay Puppy Preschool, which helps with socialization and desensitization in puppies in a safe environment.
As a puppy mommy, I love bringing Harley to Puppy Preschool! I know that he gets used to other dogs and to common sounds and experiences. He always loves going and has a great time, and I love seeing what he does during his day on Facebook!

First of all the staff at Dogs Bay North are phenomenal! My Oliver is so excited everyday to attend Puppy Preschool.
Puppy Preschool is so essential to my fur babyâ€™s development. He is being well socialized and taught the fundamentals for becoming the best he can be. Puppy preschool and myself, partner together to help develop/reinforce great skills and behaviors. I will & do recommend this program to every family with a fur baby.Â Oliver loves going to school!!
Puppy Preschool has been a fantastic experience!!
Charley has become more confident, plays better with other dogs, has become more brave with things he feared.Â He truly loves the staff..he lets out a chirp of excitement and runs for the door when we arrive. The staff is so sweet to him..I love knowing that he loves it when I leave him. When I pick him upâ€¦he is wiped out for the rest of the night!! Itâ€™s great to know he had a fun filled day learning new things!Â This is a great, safe way of socializing your dog! I also want to mention, the creative games they play with the pups to challenge them. We just love it!!
