Canine Crews Puppy Program
In keeping with Canine Crews’ focus on the overall health and happiness of dogs, we are pleased to announce our Bucktown Puppy Program, designed specifically to help your puppy develop into a socialized and friendly member of your family. Because puppies are most responsive to learning and retaining experiences within the first 13 to 16 weeks after birth, these younger dogs will spend the majority of their time in our small dog room, with a schedule for introductions to multiple staff members and dogs in positive settings, increasing their human and fellow dog socialization. This allows them to get used to our staff, our building, and the smells and sounds associated with a dog daycare and boarding facility. Other developmental programming includes plenty of naps to encourage crate training, monitored playtime with adult dogs, and the appropriate number of daily walks, all to facilitate the positive experiences that are pivotal in creating that balanced and happy member of your family.
As the larger breeds mature, more time in select groups of bigger dogs is scheduled to increase proper social and behavioral development, as adult dogs help establish boundaries and proper behaviors for interaction within the pack. Off-leash dog play, which is also part of the puppy program, is another excellent way for your pup to mature into a dog that enjoys the company of other dogs and humans in an engaged and healthy way.
For purposes of puppy development both at home and at Canine Crews, we offer our Puppy Program with daycare on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with walks scheduled on the alternate days (if you reside in our dog walk service area). The walks begin as 10-minute puppy potty breaks two times a day, and then evolve to one 25-minute walk as your dog matures, with the tandem daycare regimen, encouraging the structured and positive situations which are crucial to developing that socialized, playful, and happy member of your family!
