KinderPups Day School Program

Our new KinderPups Enrichment Room is open!


We've built out the cutest space that is exclusive to puppies, including their own yard. It's built with a fear-free approach to ensure a positive experience for the puppies.

It's a safe and controlled environment designed with the puppy's safety and fear-free experience in mind. We focus on appropriate socialization, rotating enrichment activities, and training for life skills and manners.

The best part? The space has four walls of the most incredible mural by The Bear & Unicorn. Find out more about the KinderPups program here!

Fear-Free Approach

Welcome to our puppy day school, where we prioritize a stress-free experience for your puppy. We believe that a positive and nurturing atmosphere is essential for the holistic development of puppies. From the paint colors to the flooring, every aspect of our KinderPups private room is designed to ensure your puppy feels safe and secure.

Our program structure is tailored to promote socialization, confidence building, and learning through positive reinforcement techniques. By fostering a fear-free environment, we empower puppies to explore, learn, and grow without anxiety or stress. This approach not only enhances their cognitive and emotional development but also sets the foundation for a lifetime of happy, well-adjusted companionship.

At our puppy day school, we are committed to providing a nurturing and enriching experience that prioritizes your puppy's well-being above all else. 

Comprehensive Learning

We pride ourselves on offering proven programs rooted in the latest techniques and a humane approach to training. Our curriculum is carefully crafted to encompass structured play, socialization, and enrichment activities, providing your puppy with a comprehensive learning experience unlike any other in Calgary.

We understand the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest advancements in puppy development and training methodologies. That's why our programs are constantly evolving to incorporate the most effective and humane techniques available. From positive reinforcement training methods to carefully structured play sessions, every aspect of our program is designed to promote your puppy's physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
