+ dog day school



Day care with a twist … the pawsitive dog day school puts your dog on the training fast track and keeps him there! This supplemental program is designed to work in conjunction with traditional classes and caters to busy professionals who enjoy leaving their guilt at the door while receiving steadfast results.

Offered during the week with no minimum/maximum attendance requirements, day school students attend + dog on a supplemental basis with most participating 3-4 days a week for optimal results. Our structured program is overseen by professionals — the same training faculty who train your dog in class, at camp, on home visits and during pack walks: Jen Vickery, Breslin Benyo and adjunct trainers, Francis Holder and Scott Dunmore, as well as + dog interns Renee & Ian. With 75+ years of training experience between us, our diverse group not only gets results, but ensures your dog is comfortable with both genders and a variety of handlers who are all committed to helping you & your dog develop an enjoyable lifelong partnership.

Not to be confused with traditional doggie day care, + dog day school is more Montessori than an all-day free-for -all recess. YES - your dog will play and network with appropriate classmates, but he will also bask in abundant amounts of TLC, and most importantly, receive several one-on-one training sessions both privately and in classes which complement your traditional class education.

No drop-outs here! Turnover at + dog day school is minimal with most students going on to graduate with their "dogtorate" degree and some even becoming  "Tailedictorians" of their class.

Interested in enrolling your dog in + dog day school? Due to our high demand and interest in providing personalized service for all of our clients, dogs and owners alike, day school is only available to past and present traditional class attendees. If you are interested in enrolling your dog in + dog day school and participating in our traditional classes, call or click here to contact us and set up your free pre-enrollment consultation today.

Need a ride to day school? Ride the Red Dog Bus! Drop off and pick up is available via our neighbor, Boston Red Dog. They are happy to help by sharing their doggie bus with + dog students. Boston Red Dog´s bonded and insured drivers begin pickup at 7 am and begin drop-off at 6 pm. Here's the scoop: Alfonso and team members will be your dog's personal chauffeurs! Schedule in advance, preferably within 48-hours. Your life just got a little easier!

"What I am most proud of is that he has discovered the joy of being a dog. He is more confident, relaxed and carefree around other dogs – and so am I. I always worried that he was missing out b/c he didn't know how to play with other dogs or even with other dogs nearby. Sure, he loves walking with his friends – but he wasn't able to enjoy running and playing with them (probably more my issue than his). Now I get so excited when I drop him off at day school and he walks confidently in to the room with no concern for any dog he passes – and I get even more emotional when I see or hear about him actually 'playing' with other classmates during the day or while at camp!! And while I know not every dog is good match for him, it's nice to see the 'smile' on his face when he does find one he likes."

— Michele D.
