Puppy Socialization / Play Group

This Play/Socialization Group is for puppies currently enrolled in our group classes and/or private lessons. Puppies will learn appropriate social cues from dogs and people while being supervised by approved AKC Evaluators.
Weekly attendance is encouraged to maximize the benefits, but is not mandatory to take each of the 6 weeks back to back.
Have a great time watching your puppy learn and master play skills and social cues.
Added bonus….they sleep the rest of Saturday after Puppy Socialization.

Puppy Play / Socialization Class is for puppies to socialize under supervision by a trainer in our training studio in Studio City. Puppies will be paired up and switched out based on size and temperament. Puppies that are not directly playing will watch the others play which will help them with impulse control and learning appropriate dog behavior. All puppies must have vaccinations and show no signs of aggression towards people or dogs. The trainer will referee and explain the behaviors the puppies are displaying so you and your puppy learn what is appropriate and not appropriate play behavior. Evaluations or previous classes with us are required before your puppy will be accepted into this class. (Vaccine records are mandatory for this class).

This is a 6 week course

Meeting one hour each week for 6 weeks.

The price is $189 for 6 sessions of Puppy Social.  The sessions do not need to be attended on consecutive weeks.
