Brilliant Puppy School
Give your puppy the best start
for the best life with you
What is Charlotte Puppy School?
Have you ever wished you could send your puppy on the bus to school with your kids so you could have a productive day while they learn and play? Now you can!!! Brilliant Puppy School is a program where puppies join us twice a week for four weeks and work on basic manners, socialization and confidence building.
We teach the puppies their names, to come when called, sit, down, stay, place, leave it, and drop it. We go on daily field trips into the community to work on leash walking and real world applications of the skills they are learning throughout the program. To make everything better, we take care of pick up and drop off so puppies come home tired and ready to practice these skills with their people.
Puppy School is a comprehensive program that teaches your puppy the skills for a great life with you!
Why You Will Love Charlotte Puppy Training School:
A trained, happy puppy
Your puppy will come home after school tired! The puppy with tons of energy who wanted to play and run around your house in the morning will be ready to cuddle with you after a full day of Puppy School.
Teaching good habits
Our trainers will work with your puppy to practice desirable behaviors and build good habits on our field trips and throughout the day.
Convenient for you
We will handle pick up and drop off for your convenience. Your puppy will receive crate training and positive reinforcement throughout all car rides during the school day.
We provide a daily report card detailing your puppy’s behavior during all activities and training sessions, including puppy play time, crate training, car riding, and more.
Quality individualized training
Limited enrollment means you can rest assured that your puppy is getting quality individualized attention.
Basic Training Skills
We want to make sure your puppy has a solid foundation you can build upon, whether that’s as a future performance dog, therapy dog, or well loved family pet. Each school day our trainers will work with your puppy during multiple group training sessions and an individual field trip training session.
Why Your Puppy Will Love Charlotte Puppy Training School:
Playtime with new friends!
Your puppy will be sorted into a play group with other puppies based on confidence and play style. All puppy play is monitored to ensure that your puppy has a positive experience when socializing with other puppies.
Happy, play-based learning
We set expectations and break life skills down into manageable chunks so your puppy can confidently handle them without becoming overwhelmed or stressed.
Addressing puppy biting
Instead of biting and jumping to get attention, puppies learn appropriate ways to play with people. We teach toy play and handling games to help your puppy learn how to interact with people positively.
During our field trips your puppy will work one-on-one with our trainers on leash walking, socialization, and appropriate greeting in “real world” scenarios.
Your puppy will get exposed to a variety of fun and engaging enrichment activities each school day. These activities build confidence and resilience.
Your puppy will come home ready to practice all their new skills with their best friend – you!
Why you’ll both love it:
More quality time!
