IT’S BARK TO SCHOOL TIME AT ONLY PUPPY DAY SCHOOL IN METRO NORTH AREA!
Dog Training Boston MA

PRESS RELEASE, by Michele Meagher:
August 17, 2014, BURLINGTON, MA—As school vacation winds down, parents gear up to send their children back to school. For dual-career households who welcomed a puppy during the summer, their newest family member could be home alone. What’s a family to do? In the metro north area, parents can send their puppies “bark” to school, too, at the innovative Picture Perfect Pets’ Puppy Day School, a drop-off dog training and socialization program for young puppies, located at 374A Cambridge Street in Burlington.

Launched by Burlington resident Bette Yip this past January, Puppy Day School is a place where puppies, aged 8 to 23 weeks, can join other puppies, safely exploring boundaries and learning important life lessons while under the watchful eyes of trained professionals. Yip, a certified pet dog trainer-knowledge assessed (CPDT-KA), has been a positive-reinforcement dog trainer and pet photographer for over 11 years. Picture Perfect Pet’s first-of-its-kind program is not meant to replace, but rather to supplement, the group and private dog training lessons the whole family still needs to attend with their puppy. Kathleen Hanson, D.V.M, of Burlington Animal Clinic, (http://www.burlingtonanimalclinic.com) agrees.

"In my practice, I encourage new puppy parents to start socializing their puppies as soon as they bring them home,” says Dr. Hanson. “To a dog, new things are scary which is why I recommend introducing them to lots of different things while they are young and still pliant. It’s important for families to continue socialization at home, yet a program like the Puppy Day School helps puppies learn to be good family members, while keeping them from being bored and frustrated at home.”

Amanda Densmore’s puppy Izzy started at Puppy Day School in May when she was 14-weeks old. “When we pull in to the parking lot, Izzy pulls me in Picture Perfect Pets, which isn't picture perfect behavior, but shows how much she loves the other dogs and the people there,” says Densmore. “The services have taught us so much about how to help Izzy be happy and confident in her environment and become the happiest, kindest player with other dogs.”

In addition to Puppy Day School, Yip offers both group and private lessons for dogs no matter what their age. Since the school’s launch, a number of students have moved up to Doggie Middle School, and some have even been invited to become Mentor Dogs. This summer, Yip also added Puppy Slumber Parties so that puppy students can be well taken care of in their home away from home while their families are away.

Cali Rodriguez and Jeff Vanasse’s rescue puppy Toby has found a second family at Puppy Day School. “As first time puppy owners we knew we wanted our dog to be socialized and well trained from the get go, despite the fact that we both work full time jobs,” says Rodriguez. “The great thing about Picture Perfect Pets is that it combines training, day care, and boarding all in one, so that Toby’s training is consistent at home and at day school while we are at work.”

According to Yip, puppies can begin attending Puppy Day School after receiving the first of the three sets of their puppy vaccines and negative fecal test results indicating that no Giardia or parasites of any kind exist. Busy families will be glad to know that Puppy Bus Service to and from school is available within Burlington and surrounding communities including Arlington, Belmont, Lexington , Medford, Reading, Somerville, Waltham, Watertown, Winchester, Woburn, as well as parts of Boston, Dedham, Newton, Needham and Wellesley. From Labor Day throughout the fall, Yip is offering a Bark to School promotion.

It seems like every time I've mentioned that I'm a dog trainer over the past few years, people's faces light up as they comment, "like "The Dog Whisperer." I'm always torn between just politely nodding and smiling, and giving the "why Cesar Milan isn't one of my favorites, but check out Ian Dunbar and Patricia McConnell" speech. Just recently, I received a link to this article, which couldn't have said it better. en.betteyip.com/links/L10120.html">Click here to read the article, "Critcs Challenge 'Dog Whisperer' Methods by Lynne Peeples, posted on LiveScience.com.
