Puppy Social:

Your puppy already knows how to play, but does he know how to play politely without getting overexcited? Puppy Social gives your little one opportunities to practice appropriate play with other puppies in a safe, professionally supervised environment, plus short periods of downtime so they learn to calm themselves. Puppy Social is also appropriate for shy puppies that need short exposures to play with breaks in the social pressure. For puppies under 6 months old and under 30 lbs. Registration is required. Please bring your puppy’s favorite chew and lots of tiny treats. Vaccination records are required to participate.
