What we're about

Welcome puppy parents!

Dogkind puppy socials are small, supervised playgroups designed to improve social skills with other puppies. Play is closely monitored to make sure all puppies are having a good time, and separate play areas are provided for shy puppies if needed. Puppies will also meet new people and explore a variety of novel objects and surfaces in the play area.

Socials are held on Monday evenings at 6:45 pm at the Pet Food Express in Davis. All puppies must be up to date on vaccinations for their age.

Ongoing support:

Should you be interested, we offer a wide variety of training, walking and sitting services. Check out www.dogkindtraining.com for more information!
