Description:
Puppy Socials is 30 minutes of puppy socialization time with trainer supervision and education to help provide your puppy the most beneficial and positive play time with other puppies in a safe, supervised, and clean environment. Giving lots of opportunity for your puppy to strengthen their socializing skills with other dogs and people is critical at this age and it is the most important thing you can do to ensure your puppy grows up friendly and well-adjusted.

Off-leash play with other puppies is one of the best ways to help your puppy learn and practice effective dog to dog communication and self control, for lifelong benefits.

Available For:

Puppy socials are for puppies up to 6 months old and 2 humans.

Note:
Puppies are required to have had their first round of vaccinations a minimum of 8 days before attending puppy socials. In addition, they will need Bordetella, which is not a core vaccination.

Description:

The first step in raising a well-mannered, educated dog is puppy socialization and the start of basic training. Puppies will have 2 controlled off-leash play sessions with other puppies while learning how to behave around other dogs. You will help your puppy develop important skills such as listening during distractions, inhibiting play-bites, and feeling comfortable when humans handle their food, teeth, and bodies.

Puppy Kindergarten is for puppies 2-8 months and due to COVID-19 restrictions we must limit the number of humans attending class to 1 per dog.

Puppies are required to have had their first round of vaccinations and can attend class 8 days after that. In addition, they will need Bordetella, which is not a core vaccination.
