Socials during shelter in place order




Supervised playtime with an instructor. Puppies learn great boundaries and play with dogs of all sizes, ages and breed. Puppy socials help them grow into a confident puppy ready to enter teenage hood.

Our puppy socials are specifically designed to provide your puppy the enrichment and socialization he/she requires with other puppies. These socials are held at the store in a clean and sanitized space. The socials are supervised and we provide education about dog play and interactions. Our focus is to allow a healthy and safe play amongst puppies.

We will focus on reinforcing good behaviors during the playtime and provide a positive environment and encounters with new people and other dogs. The social will take place at our house. There is a limit of 6 puppies per group. 3 instructors are present. 

Shy puppies: 8-16 weeks old

Active puppies: 9-24 weeks old

Teenagers: 24 week and older *only for puppies that have been to socials


Every Sunday

Shy puppies: 12 - 1 pm

Active puppies: 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Expectations for Training and socials: 

Dogs are living beings and behavior is dependent on many variables. The result of training a dog is dependent on each individual dog (breed/temperament/etc), past training experience and exposure, dog owner/handler experience, consistency of following management and training protocols and much more. Ethically we cannot give you any guarantee but we will absolutely do our best to provide you an estimate of what you can expect if you follow through with our management and/or training plans.
