Important to know about our School
Crate Training: Did you know that naps are essential to a pup's physical and mental health? It is true. Your pup must have experience settling in a closed crate. At School our puppies nap twice a day for 90 minutes in a closed and covered crate. Naps are essential to their physical and mental health.
You must read and agree to our Day School policies concerning Refund, Puppy Requirements, and Health and Wellness.
Please review your own personal schedule to ensure that your puppy can attend all dates in your chosen program.

Please View the Vaccine Chart - Core vs NonCore Vaccines-DNM.
By carefully choosing SmartyPup for your pup's training and socialization, you have selected a group where, people like you, have their pup’s physical and psychological health as a priority. A place where safe, controlled and limited exposure to other animals lowers the risk of infectious diseases and viruses.
You can't control everything, but you can give your dog the best chance for success by enriching their environment and giving them a reasonably safe way to explore the world both in the house and in the great outdoors, especially between the ages of 7 to 13 weeks.
Quote from Dr. Sandy Hazanow: I advise my clients that it is essential to properly immunize young animals according to a schedule set by your veterinarian and that no matter what you do, other than keeping your dog inside all the time vaccinations don't always work. They may even be deactivated by the antibodies a puppy gets from its mom, so really, there is no guarantee (discuss further with your vet). That is why your well-informed decisions and questions are of paramount importance.
Veterinarians will guide you on vaccination decisions by assessing factors about you, your dog, his breed, and the activities you plan on doing.
