Puppy Playcare

Practice Makes for a Perfect Puppy


Puppy Playcare combines training practice, play, and socialization. It is the ideal, “day off” for puppies in our Jumpstart Training Program and the perfect daycare alternative for older puppies and Jumpstart graduates.

Daily practice is vitally important for puppies to retain and perfect what they have learned. For puppies attending day training in our Jumpstart Program it is the ideal in-between day, with continued practice in potty training, ringing bells to go out, recall and distraction work – all combined in a play-filled day. Once your puppy graduates from Jumpstart the Playcare Program continues his education as he grows and matures during the first year. This is why Playcare is perfect for puppies of all ages.

What is the difference between Jumpstart and Playcare?


Jumpstart training days emphasize training sessions followed by play. Playcare days are for practice and review, weaving newly learned skills into a day filled with play. Puppies in both programs enjoy outdoor time and training at Ciel Blue Ranch and at the Hound House.

Playcare takes place Monday through Friday. Packages are available. 

Location: Ciel Blue is a private 2-acre ranch where puppies can run, play, swim and train in the safety of fenced pastures. A video of the ranch is below.
