PUPPY
PLAYGROUP

Wherever your puppy starts off on the socialization spectrum, moderated puppy playgroups are a vital part of their learning to be comfortable with their own species as well as people outside of their home. Some pups charge right in and are the life of the party from the get go. These pups might even be so enthusiastic that other pups choose not to interact with them. Other pups are a bit more cautious and take time to become socially engaged. These pups might initially choose to hide behind you and watch the other pups play.

Puppy playgroup is held every Sunday at our Pine Street location 12pm - 1pm

$15 per pup

WHO CAN COME TO PUPPY PLAYGROUP?


Puppy playgroup is open to all pups ages 8 weeks to 16 weeks. Be ready to provide their current age-appropriate vaccination records. Negative fecal may be requested. You may ask your veterinarian to fax the records over to us at (802) 540-0540 beforehand to avoid delay at drop-off. No interviews are required for the little pups - just stop on by!




WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?


Puppy playgroup is a great opportunity for your pooch to develop play skills with other puppies in a safe and supervised environment. 8 to 16 weeks is the age of the primary development phase for puppies when they most easily learn. This is also a critical socialization period for your puppy. All sessions are supervised by our experienced dog handlers and at the end of each session you will receive a full report on how your pup did during the playgroup.




ARE DROP-INS ALLOWED?


You may schedule your puppy playgroup slot with our front desk staff. Drop-ins are welcome as long as there is space available (20 puppies is our current limit). Please plan to arrive early for your first visit to fill out necessary paperwork and to bring your pup's current age-appropriate vaccination records.




WHAT HAPPENS ONCE MY PUP IS 16 WEEKS OLD?


All playgroup attendees of at least 2 playgroups will have their behavior evaluated. We will let you know if your puppy successfully graduates into our regular daycare after their last puppy playgroup session and once they are at least 12 weeks old.
