What is a puppy social?
Puppy socials are a great opportunity to socialize and introduce your new puppy to other puppies. You and your puppy will learn about appropriate puppy play including how to safely manage and train your puppy's play skills. Early puppy socialization is important during this critical puppy age and will greatly help puppies to become confident and polite adult dogs in the future.
Cost: $35 for a 45 minute session
