Group Classes

Puppy Preschool Social

Proper socialization is critical to your puppy's behavioral development!  The Puppy Preschool Social is a great way to safely introduce your puppy to other dogs, people, sights, and sounds under the supervision of an experienced puppy trainer.  Owners will have the opportunity to ask all of your burning puppy questions.

Puppies must be between 8 - 20 weeks and up to date on all age appropriate vaccines.  We agree with the American Society of Veterinary Behavior (ASVAB)  position statement on puppy socialization  and do not require puppies to be fully vaccinated before attending.

**Dogtopia Clients Special -   For a limited time, Dogtopia puppies (5 months and younger) can join the puppy social at no cost when they attend daycare on the afternoon of a scheduled social.

Cost: $25.00 per social
