Puppy Socialization (In-Person) - Starting 10/07/23 at 9:00 AM

Have a new puppy? Looking for puppy socials with a little bit more? This 3-week course offers all the fun and social learning of puppy socials, PLUS:

  • Transform your puppy-gator into a nice, sweet puppy by learning bite inhibition
  • Reduce leash reactivity by teaching your pup to tolerate other puppies playing.
  • Enjoy safer play dates and outings with your pup by learning appropriate dog-dog play.
  • Bomb-proof your pup to neighborhood distractions with environmental enrichment.
  • Have better control of your pup by teaching them to come away from play; BE the most fun to your pup!

**Puppies must be 18 weeks or younger on the first day of class. This is not an alternative to puppy training classes; basic training behaviors will not be covered. We recommend this course as a supplement to Beginning Puppy Training.

  4. Please bring a variety of tasty treats for your pup, cut up small.
