Saturday Social  - On Hold Until Fall 2017

An hour of play for the dogs while parents watch and learn the ins and outs of appropriate dog socialization.  Owners learn the basics of dog play and body language so that owners are better prepared to introduce their dogs to social settings like dog parks and public events.  This is a pay-to-play  class so dogs are welcome to join as often, or little, as they'd like!

Please Note: We must have a minimum of four dogs to hold class so pre-registration is highly recommended
Held every Saturday - 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
