Our puppy socialization classes offer puppies a safe and sanitary environment to play, learn social cues, and create positive associations. Classes are led by certified dog trainers who encourage positive social connections and behaviors and redirects unwanted or inappropriate behaviors.
One of the most common myths is that dogs naturally know how to swim. In fact, many dogs need to be taught how to swim. Socialization for puppies is more than playing; it’s exposing them to new, positive experiences, like swimming.
