Refined K9 Muttassori
“The Ulti-mutt in Day School for Dogs”
Dogs arrive for Refined K9 Muttassori between 9:00 – 10:00 am and are picked up between 4:00 – 6:00 pm. Your dog will spend one-on-one time with a professional trainer, socialize with other dogs, and learn to rest calmly between activities. A day of K9 Muttassori is filled with training, problem solving, exercise and fun!
As part of our K9 Muttassori service, we assess your dog on a on-going basis and create games to help your dog learn important foundations like ‘How to Problem Solve’ and ‘Unharnessing Excessive Energy’ at an appropriate time. In addition to learning important socializing skills with both dogs & people, your dog is getting a much needed foundation to become the very best that they can be. Welcome to the Refined K9 Club!
All dogs get a short outing as they arrive. Depending on the day, pups will get a short walk or an extra training session
One on One – Dogs receive a minimum of one training/exploration session a day. Training time will be spent working on mental stimulation, such as learning a trick, trying out our agility equipment, introduction to scent work, body awareness games, impulse control games, and basic manners such as “sit, down, polite greetings, recall and go to bed". Some dogs may just want some TLC while others may get to play a game of fetch.
Once your dog has had a behavioral assessment, your dog will be grouped with other dogs who will help him learn appropriate play style while having fun. If your dog does not play well with other dogs he will spend his socialization time one on one with our staff members & if appropriate our dog savvy dogs working on AMP.
All dogs get a break in between activities. This break is very important. It gives the dogs the opportunity to relax so they don’t become over excited and helps them to learn how to settle on their own.
For dogs that are cautious and fearful, we know how to expose them to different environments, dogs, people & training exercises at their pace. Once your dog has had fun while experiencing the ‘unknown’ and has had a chance to learn that he has some control over his environment, he can begin to see that new (scary) things in life can be a fun and rewarding. So you now have an option for your pup to get out and about and have help teaching him that the world is not such a scary place.
When you pick up your dog at the end of the day, you will get a brief verbal report. You may even get some homework to support the efforts we are trying to achieve for you and your dog. Some days you will get a more detailed report than others. But we are keeping track of your dog’s needs and activities and advancing them when they show us they are ready for the next step.
K9 Muttassori space is limited and must be reserved in advance.
Before attending K9 Muttassori it is required that you come in for an assessment with your dog. Assessment may be waived on a case by case basis for current Unleashed! clients.
Assessments are 1 hour long and offered Tuesday - Friday by appointment. We will evaluate your dog(s) to determine whether K9 Muttassori is the best option for them and answer any questions you might have. Following the assessment we will discuss how your dog did and schedule your dog for a trial day. We charge a fee of $45 for assessments.
