SDK Day School


DOG DAY SCHOOL‼️ is a unique program to SDK and to the Training World.  Just like a human kid - students will get dropped off and picked up Mon-Thurs. This 12 week program is designed to educate students from Elementary -> Jr High -> SDK High -> K9 College.  Report cards are sent home weekly.  Quarter-end testing and parent/teacher conferences are held every 3 weeks (on Wednesdays) to discuss progress.  Weekly report cards and daily FB posts on the private school page keep parents updated on classroom activities.  A final graduation ceremony will take place at the completion of the program.  There is an option to purchase a year book full of memories at the end of the session. 

Open House

Before each session begins, parents will need to attend an Open House. Here they will get to meet the Teacher & Assistants, see the classroom and get the packet with the curriculum, student expectations, and important dates.  As crate training is an important part of dog life, parents will choose a crate AKA: Desk; at Open House that most resembles theirs at home OR may choose to bring and leave a crate for student to use for duration of session.

Winter Open House is Sunday January 3rd from 1-3pm.

The School Day

The classroom is located in the Training Center East of the Boarding/Daycare facility at SDK South.  Students can be dropped off after 8:00am.  The BELL rings at 9:05am.  Don’t be Tardy!  All students receive individual sessions, group lessons and advance together following a structured curriculum.  Just like human students, canine students will progress at their own pace.  The end goal of the session would be to meet the requirements for CGC testing.  Not every student may master all skills and some may need more assistance than others.  And that’s okay.  The classroom has a built in kitchen for “counter surfing” work and has a “furnished homelike” area for real life training scenarios.  We have scheduled Lunch/Recess so don’t forget to pack your lunch (All students will get an SDK lunch box) Potty breaks are built in and snacks are provided.  School Dismissal is 4:35pm.  Pick up before 5:30pm.
