Do you have a young dog? Come play at Social Hour!

Socialization for dogs is more than just interacting with other dogs, although that’s a very big part of it. Socialization really means introducing your dog to new experiences in a secure and safe environment. Without proper socialization, dogs may become anxious and fearful of anything unfamiliar. Without proper socialization, behavior could rise into serious behavioral issues such as reactivity or nervous behavior. In addition, if your dog is already a social butterfly, it is SO MUCH FUN!

Socialization Development

Dog owners can sign up on a weekly basis to bring their dogs to play with other dogs their age as well as be introduced to new experiences and people. Our experts can also discuss and answer basic training questions like crate training or loose leash walking.

Social Hour is a great precursor or supplement to taking one of our etiquette classes.

Social Hour is $20 per 1 hour session and will be lead by one of our experts.
