WHAT IS BARK TO SCHOOL?
Bark to School Year 5 is our annual Tricks Class for your dogs and each year has a fun theme–what’s not to love? Enroll your pup for 8 weeks.
When your dog comes to daycare, we will teach new tricks every week. But wait! There’s so much more! We will also provide you with videos created by our staff to continue training with your dog at home! You will have access to these videos forever.
In October we will have our Tricks for Treats contest where your dog can win a prize! Traditionally, this event is held live, on site at YPS. But this year, for your safety, we’re going to adjust as we need to for ongoing COVID guidelines. (If we cannot hold a live event, we may ask you to take a video of your dog doing his tricks for you at home, and our judges will get to vote for the winner’s video!) We’ll keep you informed as things this fall progress. 😉
Funny routines with sequential tricks and costumes are not required, but killing your audience with cute never hurts. 😉 Just have fun with your dogs!
THIS YEAR’S THEME: DOGOLYMPICS!
Is your dog an undiscovered athlete? Does he have perfect balance when begging for treats? Can she not resist a ball–any ball? Can your dogs jump the neighbor in a single bound? Can he spin, weave, catch or tunnel like your living room is a performance arena–look out for the lamp!? Does she have her own personal floor routine with belly rub time? Or do they show off best in the pool, then come in and splash all over you?
Whether your dog is a Butter Paws, the next Air Bud or an Ultimutt Olympian, we’re setting the stage for him to take home the gold!
