Introducing Playful Paws Learning Academy

For dogs 5 months of age and older
Pups, like kids, learn best when they’re having fun. That’s why we created an all-day “play school” for dogs ready to get serious about meeting new friends or learning new skills.

Here’s a sample day:


10:00am Drop off with supervised play until 11:00am
11:00 – 11:30am Structured training (it will change day to day)
11:40am – 12:00pm Lunch in a ball or puzzle toy
12:00 – 1:00pm Relax and supervised socializing
1:00 – 1:30pm Structured training games (it will change from day to day)
2:00 – 2:30pm Training walk
3:00 – 4:00pm Pick up


  • For dogs 5 months of age or older
  • 4 dogs per class, separated by size
  • Classes meet Tues and Thurs for 4 weeks
  • Pricing is $600 ($75 per day) for new enrollment clients.
  • Pricing is $320 ( $40 per day) for clients that currently have a daycare package.
  • Training walks are separate from the program and can be reserved in advance.
  • All participants must complete a “meet and greet” for group dog play and show proof of up-to-date Rabies, Bordetella and DHPP vaccines. Verification from your veterinarian is required.
  • Space is limited so Happy Paws has a no-refund policy for this program. If your dog is unable to attend for health reasons, we are happy to reschedule you.
