Puppy Socialization Classes

Build confidence, develop social skills, and have fun playing, all with the guidance of a trainer. We offer two types of puppy social classes. Our standard class is a chance for puppies to interact and learn to play/meet other dogs safely. Our Puppy Social Plus classes add more structure and basic obedience practice to the class.

What to expect at our Puppy Social Classes

With the guidance and support of our trainer, your pup will be supervised while interacting with other suitable puppies. Puppies are brought in to the pen in small groups (typically 2 or 4 at a time). The trainer will always carefully match your pup with others and ensure it is a positive and safe experience for them.

They are then encouraged and guided through how to interact with each other appropriately, whether it is to slow down, approach respectfully and learn to read the other dogs body language or boost their confidence by encouraging play and curiosity with each other.

Owner’s will stand on the outside of the enclosure while their pup is interacting. Every few minutes the puppies get to take a break and are given back to you while a few other puppies get to take a try. 

When outside of the pen your puppy is under your care and you are encouraged to work with your pup on their patience, calmness in a stimulating environment, or work on their basic training until it is their turn to go back in the enclosure. This cooldown time where they can just observe without participating is just as important for socialization!

Our classes teach your puppy how to respectfully engage with other dogs, they will learn to be confident but controlled and respectful when making new friends.

This class is designed to be as educational for you as it is for your puppy.
