Day Training School

Currently Full! Please call to get on the wait list!

Happy-Go-Lucky is proud to announce our new premium service: Day Training School.

We call it “school” because that’s what it is most like – a school…for dogs.

Just like the kids’ version, you drop your dog off (8-8:30am) and pick you them up (2-2:30pm) for a day of learning. To begin, we will offer this service on Mondays and Wednesdays, accepting just 10 dogs per day.

Our experienced trainers provide much more than care for your dog. We work on manners, obedience and socialization to help you boost your at-home training and raise a more well-mannered and relaxed Happy-Go-Lucky dog.

An ideal complement and reinforcement to what you’ve started in our group classes or private training, each day’s curriculum includes a rotation of training such as:

  • Appropriate, guided play with interruptions for name recognition, recall practice, sits and downs, and self control.
  • One-on-one obedience tutoring, building and refining behaviors like stay, come, down, go-to-place, and leave-it.
  • Neighborhood working walks, focusing on keeping a loose leash, waiting at doorways and curbs, and all the basics like sit, down and stay with outside distractions.
  • Structured downtime, including puzzle work, relaxation and naps.

Get a jump start to your dog’s education and enroll in our Day Training School. Preference will be given to those who commit to two days per week and are also Happy-Go-Lucky alumni. To schedule an intake interview, call us at 503-731-8774.

Dogs must be:

  • People and dog-friendly (no bite history)
  • 4 months of age and up
  • In good physical health – no limping, coughing, sneezing, vomiting, diarrhea
  • Adequately protected from disease
  • On effective flea control and relatively clean (no muddy dogs, please!)

Please be aware that some dogs may not be a good fit for Day Training. As your dog’s first day is their evaluation, please make sure you are available in case early pick up is necessary.
