Parents & Puppies Playgroup
Do you have a puppy that needs socialization and exercise, but it's too daunting trying to manage both the kids and the puppy in a public or group setting? These playgroups are specially designed to cater to the busy parent. Your babies, toddlers and even older children are welcome to attend. Parents can meet and socialize with their children, while our trainer, Angela Nickerson, supervises and directs appropriate puppy behavior. Our large training space will be divided into two areas; one for puppies and the other for children. When appropriate, we will discuss and demonstrate proper child/puppy interactions as well, to help you reinforce good habits and skills at home. This is a terrific opportunity to give your puppy the socialization necessary to help develop into a well adjusted dog, while also taking advantage of a confined, comfortable, child-friendly environment. No walk-ins. Pre-registration required.

Prerequisite: None
