Puppy Socialization Classes

We have had limited interest in Puppy Socialization Classes, so we do not currently have any classes scheduled. Please send us an email to if you would be interested in puppy class, and we can reassess interest levels

Group Class Details

Puppy socialization classes are an adventure, both for you and your pup! Puppy socialization class is for puppies aged 3 - 5 months, intended for them to interact with other dogs during this critical socialization period and learn how to socialize with other dogs. Class is held in our newly landscaped outdoor play pen. Our class facilitators ensure that play is positive and controlled, and will also provide some useful tips and tricks on puppy ownership while your pups play!


If you can't commit to the full 4 weeks, you can also drop in for a $15 drop-in fee. Please bring your pups vaccination records with you if you plan to drop in!
