Private Lessons, Board & Train, and Day School Training Programs

In addition to offering Private Lessons (we coach you and you do all the training work) That’s My Dog! inc. also offers Board & Train services. This immersion program is perfect for anyone who wants to come back from vacation, a business trip or a few days away to be reunited with a happier, healthier and much more well behaved pet. Your dog gets to live with us for two weeks jam packed with learning. Fido will practice obedience and manners plus some agility for fun, attend training classes, learn to settle for grooming & handling and go on field trips. All of this experience helps the most devilish of dogs to learn much better behavior. The course includes all necessary supplies and follow up lessons plus our lifetime follow up guarantee.

We also offer Day School Training Programs. Day School offers all the benefits of Board and Train without having to leave your dog with us full time. Your dog comes to school each morning and goes home with you each night. Lessons and classes for you to learn how to maintain the wonderful new skills your dog learns are included. The benefit of Day School and Board & Train programs is that your dog learns faster and more efficiently by working one on one with a professional trainer. Once you begin your lessons to learn how to maintain things, the dog has a much clearer understanding of the expectations. Less work for you, faster learning for the dog equaling a quicker route to fully enjoying the dog in all of your daily activities.

We require our boarding residents to be current on vaccinations or have adequate proof of titers that demonstrate immunity to Rabies, Distemper, Parvo, and Bordetella.

All dogs that stay with us get a minimum of two hours of daycare activity each day which helps them sleep at night and reduces the stress of being away from home. Individual walks, playtime and limited grooming is available for an additional fee. When boarding your dog with us you will be required to provide your dog’s food and any needed medications.

dog daycare dubuque   Doggie Day School

That’s My Dog! Doggie Day School is a new concept in day care for your furry friend. Day care that has structure leaves your dog not only well exercised at the end of the day, but also well mannered. Dog’s that attend our program get plenty of social time with other dogs but they also learn good manners through practicing obedience, taking individual walks, learning to treadmill and having mandatory down time where they learn to just “chill out”. :-)

Day care with structure is our motto and it is what makes for a happy and content dog at the end of the day. Our day care is available Tuesday – Thursday 7:15 am – 5:30 pm. Canine friends can join us once week, multiple times per week or just occasionally but all dog’s must be pre-approved prior to attending. To schedule an evaluation, please contact us. If you’re dog needs some obedience training prior to enrolling in the Day School, we will discuss one of our training options with you.
