Socialize with Other Dogs
When most puppy owners think about socialization, other dogs is often the piece that first comes to mind. It is important for puppies to meet and play with other puppies several times over the course of these critical weeks. Outdoor Education SF is not the ideal forum for this until puppy is fully vaccinated, because it takes place outside and not in a dedicated 'puppy only' space.
Some people will choose to have us take a calculated risk and introduce their puppy to appropriate other pups at the waters edge, or in a safe zone near their home. Others prefer their puppy not be on the ground at all, and in that case, we can still help! We highly recommend our partner, SF Puppy Prep for their outstanding puppy socials (you go with your pup), and their fabulous day school, which pairs nicely with our program during daytime hours throughout the week.
