Puppy Discovery Socials
Helping your puppy explore new surfaces and meet new friends!!
Between 3 weeks and 16 weeks of age, puppies go through a critical socialization period. Puppies are soaking up information about the world and it is critical that these experiences be positive and not overwhelming.
Our Puppy Best Beginnings Level 1 class is our foundation group puppy class. It is a 6 week class and we will work on teaching puppies basic manners and obedience training. Our Puppy Discovery, Enrichment and Social exposes puppy to a wide variety of items to ensure early confidence building and problem solving.
We strongly encourage people to do both our Foundation Skills 1 class as well as our Puppy Discovery, Enrichment and Social classes. In fact, if you are waiting for your puppy class to start, the Puppy Discovery Social will kick start your training.

Group play is not for all dogs, and that does not make them bad! They likely would prefer a low key gathering with friends vs. being put into a group of stranger pups!
The instructor will remove dogs from group that he/she feels is not a good fit for the group.
