Puppy Social

Drop off your pup for a 2 hour play session at our facility.  Our professional trainers will  supervise play, and help your pup build proper social skills and confidence. 

Play is an important component of a puppy’s educational curriculum. Not only does it provide them with an outlet for their abundant puppy energy, but it is also one of the cornerstones of developing an adult dog who can best handle social interactions with other dogs. Being able to interact and play with other dogs throughout their lifetime can be a wonderful form of enrichment and should ideally be part of a plan to maintain a dog’s overall well-being. 

Rate: $15.00 (+tax)

 

IMPORTANT:

  • Session is limited to 15 puppies.

  • All puppies must have age appropriate vaccinations to participate. 

  • This is a drop-off service. Owners are not present during the play session

PRIVATE TRAINING

Bring your dog and your family for a private 30 minute session with a trainer that works with your dog. The goal of the clinics is for the owners to share feedback, learn proper dog handling techniques, and address any at-home issues. We aim to provide owners with real, actionable advice with a focus on transferring skills and behaviors into the home.

JUNIOR TRAINERS

Does your child respect and understand your dog? Does your dog respect and understand your child? We teach kids about dog body language, basic training techniques, appropriate play behaviors, and fun games to play with the dog that encourage the strength of bond between dogs and children. All training is positive based.

HUSBANDRY / GROOMING

Husbandry is the care and maintenance that is required to keep our pets happy and healthy. This includes proper nail care, dental care, brushing and grooming, cleaning of eyes and ears, and more. In this class, we will review equipment, training, and techniques to make husbandry at home a positive experience for the owner and the dog.

FIRST AID / PET CPR

Do you know how to help your dog in an emergency? Do you know what to do if your dog is choking? If you said no to either of these don’t worry you're not alone. In this clinic we review equipment that you should have and learn techniques that may save your pet's life in case of an emergency.

Our Approach: Positive & Fun!

We don't train dogs to pass a test or a trial. They never fail and we do not punish.

We follow the guidelines provided by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants and American College of Veterinary Behaviorists (link-1 and link-2) guidelines for engaging with dogs.

The use of Social Cognitive Theory (SCT) requires a strong and positive relationship between human and dog. Any aggressive responses or punishments significantly impede our objectives and mission.
