COMING IN OCTOBER
Creeksides Canine Uninversity

 

CREEKSIDE WILL BE LAUNCHING IT'S CANINE UNIVERSITY FOR DOGS IN OCTOBER. SPOTS ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED. RESERVE YOURS NOW!
Canine University is Creekside’s unique solution to help clients who struggle with aspects of the more standard overnight board-and-train program. Since its founding, Creekside has offered traditional board-and-train services with great success.  However, over the years, we have found that some clients struggle with certain aspects of the program. It’s great to have a trainer work one-on-one with your dog for an extended amount of time, but the sheer volume of the information you receive at the end of the program can be overwhelming to some and the ability to transfer this information to your home and everyday life can be a real challenge. Along with our very popular Puppy Programs, Creekside’s Canine University offers two training tracks for adult dogs as another option to the traditional board-and-train programs. And the best part - your dog will go home with you each evening instead of being gone for 3-4 weeks!
 
Your dog’s entire day is a controlled training experience, optimizing their time with us, in order to see the fastest and most effective results. 
PUPPY PROGRAMS

 

Puppy Pre-K- $15 per day (passes available)
Puppy Pre-K is a great way to introduce your dog to the world. This “open play” format is
an opportunity to socialize them with people, dogs, and new stimuli in a safe and controlled environment. Owners stay with their puppies and our trained staff will help them understand what type of play is appropriate. Puppy Pre-K is for puppies 12-14 weeks old and is held Saturdays from 10:00am to 12:00pm.  
Puppy Kindergarten-$900
Our Puppy Kindergarten program will jumpstart your pup’s education and provide them with the 
social and communication skills needed to be a well-adjusted puppy, fully equipped and ready to grow into a happy, healthy canine companion. This all-inclusive course is for dogs 14-24 weeks old. It will set up the foundation needed for your pup to be a well-mannered family member. This four-week program will equip them with the crucial social and communication skills needed to grow into a confident young adult, able to interact appropriately with people and dogs alike.  
GENERAL OBEDIENCE INTENSIVES
In this program, your dog will get dropped off daily at our location to work one-on-one with a trainer all day, five days a week.  You will also be an active part of the process. You will be brought up-to-speed by receiving daily updates, handouts, and videos about what we have been working on, allowing you to learn at home while your dog learns with us. At the end of each week, you will get a private lesson with a trainer as well as a 90-minute lesson at graduation and a 45-minute private lesson a week later. Along with training, they will participate in enrichment activities and go for “leisure walks.” When not working, they will be resting in our spacious and comfortable training suites.

Honors Program: 14-day program $2000)
This is the perfect kickstart to your dog’s education. In the two-week program your dog will gain a fundamental understanding of all the above skills and begin the process of committing all that information to muscle memory.  Towards the end of the program, they will begin receiving real-world application of said skills. 
 
Advanced Placement: 21-day program- This our most recommended program $2850
The three-week program will cover the same information as the two-week, but it will challenge your dog further. The length of this program allows you and the trainers the time to help your dog gain a more concrete understanding of the information, which allows them to further the process of committing that information to muscle memory. In this program your dog will also experience increased real-world applications and get to float in and out of group classes when appropriate. As a result, this is our most popular and recommended program.
College Prep: 21-day program + Advanced Group Class-$2950 (50% off group class)
Upon completion of the Advanced Placement program, you and your dog will enroll in our Advanced Group class in order to gain real-world experience together.
