FAQ'S

Who may attend?
Socials are designed for dog and human friendly, well-socialized dogs and puppies who are learning how to be part of the adult dog social scene.

How do I get started?
You must pre-register 24 hours before your pup’s FIRST social so that we have all your vaccination and veterinary records in order.  After that, you may reserve and pay for as many socials as you would like by 10 a.m. the day of the social.

How do I know if my dog is well-socialized?
A social dog is one who already enjoys playing with other dogs at classes, daycare or parks,  A social dog is interested in other dogs, will accept correction from another dog (which tends to occur if play heats up, is getting rough for one player, or a dog rudely greets another dog), is able to modify approach and play style to make other dogs feel comfortable.  (There will be a separate designated area for dogs that do well sharing toys and can be fed treats near other dogs.)

May my child attend?  Children under 8 are not allowed in Adult dog socials.  Well behaved children 8 and over are welcome.  Children must be kept close, supervised and always respectful of owners wishes for interactions with their dogs.

Does my dog need to be spayed or neutered?
YES.  Dogs over the age of 7 months must be spayed or neutered to attended socials.

Are the groups broken up by size?
Yes!  There are different socials times for different sized dogs.  Exceptions can be made for dogs whom are shyer or younger and still learning the ropes in the social scene.  These exceptions must be pre-approved by the trainer.  Pre-approval will require a social interaction prior to the dog's first social.
