PUPPY DEVELOPMENT AND ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS at Bubbles and Biscuits

Our Drop off Day Training program is an incredible opportunity to give your puppy the education they deserve.  With our wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, we can help prepare your puppy for future, real-world encounters: the first vet visit, the first groomer visit, and interactions with other dogs.  Your puppy will be eager and willing to learn, with confidence that will allow him or her to try again and again, if necessary, to succeed at a task.

We are committed to helping new puppy parents step off on the right PAW! We offer 2 unique programs just for you to choose from for your puppy. Pick the one that is right for you!

Puppy Head Start: In this unique program puppies are dropped off for a day of learning and fun!

We will work 1:1 with your fur baby going over specific topics you want them to learn.

We focus on decreasing issues such as biting, chewing, boredom, destruction, or barking.  We will also work on increasing appropriate manners, enrichment games, smart socialization, safe space/crate training, and potty training rituals! 

 The focus of this early education will be smart socialization, appropriate play, body familiarity, and early exposure to common items known to cause stress or confusion.

Programs require attendance 2 – 3 days/wk for the duration of the chosen program

POTTY TRAINING BOOT CAMP

Cost $750 for 1 week (Monday through Friday) Minimum of 2 weeks is needed.

We will set up the pup’s potty training schedule, and all you have to do is follow it when you pick them back up! In addition, they will get to participate in the day camp activities with the other dogs.

*As always we have designed our programs to be whole and complete just the way they are, but you can always customize the program more. Call today to ask how.

NO MATTER WHICH PROGRAM YOU CHOOSE, We can help you better understand your role in your puppy’s learning process.  We address behavioral obstacles, teach you how they originated, and provide you with many practical applications on how to overcome them, turning them from potential negative experiences into positive opportunities.

Group Class

What is it? Group class is a good way to work around a controlled distraction environment. This is excellent as a support system to follow up private or day training programs. 

How does it work? Many dog training companies pack numerous handler/dog teams in one class with one instructor. All of our classes have limited enrollment. By limiting our class size, our clients get the one-to-one attention they deserve and can achieve maximum results. We have implemented a rolling enrollment for most of our classes.  This means that new students can join at any time. We find that this method works well for practicing around distraction in a controlled environment and allows for life to happen where students do not have to worry about making up a class.

What does it cost? 

Standard Group Class:

Group class: 4-6 students: drop-in rate $40; 4-pack $120 (avg package price $30/lesson)

Specialty Group Class:
2 to 4 students and 1 Trainer $60 drop-in rate; 4-pack $200 (average $50/lesson for a package of 4)

Standard Group Classes Offered(4-6 dogs)

The Basics, Puppy and Me:

What you will learn: Each week we will go over a main topic that all pet parents should know. This class is in workshop format and designed to give you basic skills to be as successful as you can with your new fur baby and have some fun.
Each week we will also be troubleshooting any typical problem behaviors that
come up during the week and advance the skills from the other classes/workshops.
Themes for each week:
1. Make me a safe space
2. Play with me
3. Dress me up
4. Take me out
Typical problem behaviors that are addressed include but are not limited to: Potty training, Nipping, biting, jumping, barking, chewing, digging, and pulling.

Teenage Troubles (geared for dogs 6mths and up): Manners, manners, manners! Working on impulse control and the ability of the dog to focus on mild to moderate distraction will be the focus of this class. We will work on all beginner obedience commands and some specialty exercises just for those teens!

Beyond The Basics

Social Skills: Take the show on the road! We meet in various parks throughout Lee county to practice in real-world surroundings. This group is great for tune-ups, distractions, and practicing appropriate greetings to new dogs, people, kids, etc. This is a casual low stressful time for you and your dog. You may even make a few new friends along the way.

Therapy Dog Prep/Canine Good Citizen: This Class is for dogs and owners interested in Therapy work. The class will cover all items on the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. This class includes the Canine Good Citizen Testing.  These classes help build both handler and dog skills. You and your therapy dog are a team, and you both need to work together to be successful.
Advanced Therapy Dog Prep: This Class is for dogs and owners interested in more involved Therapy work like AAT. In this class, we work on behaviors needed for handler/dog evaluations and actual visits. We will be working on more advanced skills and proofing your dog for different types of Therapy situations through training and role-playing scenarios.
* All our classes are structured to prepare your dog for the S.T.A.R Puppy, Canine Good Citizen (CGC), and the Advanced Canine Good Citizen (ACGC) title.

Specialty Group Classes Offered (2 – 4 dogs)

REACTIVE ROVER CLASS: If your dog barks and lunges when it sees other people or dogs, then this class may be for you! We utilize 4 distinct skill sets to help you reach your goal. We will teach you how to read your dog’s body language and help them be more comfortable and appropriate in public.
Fearful Fido: If your dog is shy/nervous and runs to hide when encountering new people or dogs then this class is for you. This class will teach new coping skills and is geared toward dogs with fear, low confidence, and anxiety issues.

Tiny Tot Enrichment Program at Bubbles and Biscuits

We are NOT YOUR AVERAGE DAYCARE….

Bubbles & Biscuits offers an innovative, comprehensive approach to meeting the physical and psychological needs of your dog. This unique DAYCARE AND ENRICHMENT concept gives you and your dog the best possible social experience.

Our day is broken up into a new activity every hour so there is always learning going on here!

A typical day looks like:

Social skills time, brain games, exercise, language arts, rest and snack breaks.

Our core mission is to provide a place where dogs go to advance both mentally and physically. This is not just a “daycare” where dogs are dropped off and left to their own devices, but a place that offers dogs supervision through mental games, manners, environmental stimulation and social interaction!

 We are trained in animal behavior and reading canine body language to help the dogs learn to play appropriately and build their communication skills.

Our Day Camp & Enrichment Program: You drop your dog off at Bubbles and Biscuits, we love them, Teach them, and design their day to be both mentally and physically enriching. We specialize in fun and Good Habits!

Puppies under 6 months: ALL breeds welcome! We feel it is important to give everyone a strong foundation in this important time.

Dogs (over 6 months):  Small dogs (under 35lb) are welcome. Some dogs may not be ready for this environment and because we are looking out for your dog’s best interest we will need to do a temperament evaluation first.

Dogs over 35 lbs: We know that there are always exceptions to every rule and the 35 lb rule is no exception. If you feel that your dog prefers small dogs over big ones then give us a call and we can set up an evaluation day for your fur baby too! We have limited capacity for larger dogs so space fills quickly!

If your dog needs a quieter environment to get started check out our daycare readiness program.

Advantages of Day Camp:

  • Spend quality, one-on-one time with a trainer, learning valuable life skills.
  • Improve his or her performance on skills learned in class or private lessons.
  • Relate skills learned in class or private lessons to real-world skills.
  • Structured off-leash play with other dogs throughout the day.
  • Playtime with staff throughout the day.
  • Increase his or her confidence, strength, balance, attention span, and willingness to learn.
  • Interact with other puppies and with some patient adult “teaching dogs”, who will instill proper canine manners, respect for boundaries, and the rules of appropriate play.

Private Lessons at our place or yours

Private lessons allow you a lot of versatility. You pick the topics that are important to you!

How does it work? These sessions are designed as a 50/50partnership between the trainer and the owner(handler). A professional trainer works with you on the goals that you have set up ahead of time. It is their role to find out what works for you and your dog’s learning style and then have you duplicate the session while the trainer is still there to coach you through it. We will help build your skills so you are comfortable enough to work on your own (your homework).
Then it’s up to YOU to practice and advance your dog until your next session.
