Our
Approach

Home away from home

Puppies are cared for in the home of an experienced trainer. They play, learn and rest in a perfect puppy haven, with access to a secure and lush outdoor space.

We’re a school, not a daycare

We don’t just supervise your puppy. We train, socialize and nurture. Our active approach turns your puppy into a delightful and well-mannered adult dog.

Trusted expertise

Puppy trainer Ally has supported thousands of humans and puppies, and is sought after for her patient, fun and effective approach. From housetraining,
biting and chewing, to basic manners – she’s tackled it all.

“Ally’s Puppy Day School saved our sanity! As first-time puppy owners, we were completely overwhelmed with housetraining, sleeping schedules and basic good behaviors. We didn’t know where to start. Ally was recommended to us by a friend and she honestly changed the course of our life with Grover. She taught Grover so much – from house training to basic commands, and she socialized him by exposing him to the other puppies in his program as well as her own dogs. He learned how to play with dogs of all sizes and ages and he has been a well-behaved (for the most part?), very social little guy ever since. I can’t recommend Ally highly enough. She is wonderful!”
