Puppy Social

Puppy Social is a drop in play hour for puppies under 6 months. This is the perfect opportunity to get your puppy socialized with other puppies in a safe and structured environment. Play interactions are managed and supervised by our trainers to ensure all puppies have a positive experience.

**If we feel your puppy is not playing appropriately or is too fearful or uncomfortable during play, we may ask you to leave the play session early. It is our utmost concern that all puppies enjoy this playtime and leave with a positive experience. If this happens, your puppy may be more appropriate for a group class or private training.
