We hope to help as many puppies as possible receive appropriate socialization as possible and have a blast while doing it. Proper socialization means that we closely monitor interactions between the puppies during play to keep play appropriate, and slowly introduce new pups in a way that they can feel safe. Our rooms are also set up with interactive equipment to help pups gain confidence on uneven surfaces, build strength, and have a great time!
Dogs that are properly socialized as puppies interact and play well with other dogs, are much better off at vet and grooming appointments, and in general are much more comfortable with strangers. In general, well-socialized puppies are set up for a high quality standard of living because they can do more activities out and about with their families.
Puppy Socialization can also save lives. A dog that is not properly socialized is 100x more likely to lose its home due to behavior issues, and alarming statistic! Set them up for success from day one!
Puppies 8 weeks on up to 20 weeks are encouraged to come, and you are welcome to bring the entire family with you! Our groups are set up in age ranges: 8-14 weeks and 14-20 weeks. You can go to Our Calendar to see all of our upcoming meetups.
Each class, we have off leash puppy play time, structured activities and play equipment for the dogs to explore.
Ultimately, our socialization group is free, however donations are always appreciated. There is a donation box set up in the training area, and these donations help offset the cost of running the group. The group is approx. $110/hr to offer. Suggested donation is $10/pup.
Our Commitment: The play area is always properly sanitized prior to all play groups with a diluted bleach and pet-safe cleaner to minimize the risk of disease as much as absolutely possible. Our trainers are highly knowledgeable and committed to a safe and fun experience.
Ongoing Support: Should you be interested, we offer a wide variety of continued training classes at our facility. Ask your instructor for more information!
