What we're about

Hi All, This program is on hold indefinitely due to the COVID-19 circumstances. We will be offering Puppy Socialization in our Puppy Day School beginning May 26th. Here's link: https://rockymountaindogtraining.com/pages/puppy-day-school

___________________________________________________

Welcome Puppy Parents!

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!

Here's a peek into what we do: https://youtu.be/g5VVfpqJM_4

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. Well-socialized puppies are set up for a high quality of life, not a life of fear. They can play with buddies, feel comfortable when you have guests, or when you take them out and about with you on errands, to a BBQ or to your kid's soccer game!

Cost: There is a box set up in each of the training areas for you to chip in, and these help offset the cost of running the group. The group is approx. $150/hr to put on. Suggested amount to chip in is $15/pup. You can also chip in by following this link and scrolling to bottom of page: https://rockymountaindogtraining.com/products/puppy-socialization

Rules: When registering, please familiarize yourself with the Guidelines for attending which are listed in each event: Vaccination needs, attendance policy etc. We do not tolerate no shows.

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! https://rockymountaindogtraining.com

Info on "socializing" adolescent & older dogs and the route they need to take. We can help but it's done in private. https://www.tarynblyth.co.za/can-you-help-me-socialise-my-dog (https://www.tarynblyth.co.za/can-you-help-me-socialise-my-dog?fbclid=IwAR0NPzhiLV8906hJxcpiFmJV-yvY0cjYzijBH2a2sgxBHwXNMc89-VXu18s)

Other Socialization Opportunities at RMDT: Check out our Puppy Day School Program - There are two tracks - Social Puppy and Ultimate Puppy. Social Puppy is a great option for those who want thorough professional socialization or for those pups who are a bit more fearful and need some extra support. The Ultimate Puppy Program includes training and private transfer of knowledge sessions on top of socialization. https://rockymountaindogtraining.com/pages/puppy-day-school

Thank You!

This is a popular Meetup, and our attendance fills up quickly. If you are unable to attend you MUST change your RSVP 4 hours prior to the Meetup. This allows the wait listed members the opportunity to attend in your place. If you "no show" or cancel under 4 hours, you will be removed from the group promply. We just don't have enough space to allow for this. Waitlisters, you also need to change your RSVPs if you can no longer make it so the next on the list can attend. WHAT TO BRING: •Vaccination records to first Meetup (Required. We do not make exceptions) - Formats: On vet letterhead; or the vial stickers if the breeder administered. Hand-written records not permitted. •High value treats - think boiled chicken, meat-based treats (Real-Meat Treats, Salmon Treats, cheese etc. •Leash and flat collar or harness.

I.e. One parent for the dog, another for the child. There are times where we will need to limit child interaction if puppies are feeling unsure of their presence. We appreciate your understanding should this occur. • Please limit to 1 guest so that we don't get overcrowded in the play areas. •Walk-Ins not permitted. RSVP is required. •Puppies should be well-exercised prior to the meetup. Typically a 20 minute walk prior is good. •NEVER bring a puppy that is showing any signs of illness to the group. This includes things as minor as a snuffly nose, diarrhea or vomit. •All dogs will remain on leash until check in is complete and trainers give the OK. On-leash intros are scary for some puppies, so please keep them separated until this time. •Always pick up after your pet. Failing to pick up after your dog will result in your immediate removal from the group. Please report to RMDT if you witness this. •Spread of disease in undervaccinated puppies is a real and serious risk.
