Let’s get social!
The dog park… Doggy Daycare… Puppy classes.
These are all popular places to seek out for socialization.
But what if your dog is nervous?
What if they’re not very social?
Or what if… these other socialization outlets are unpredictable and unsafe?
You deserve better.
SO WE’RE GIVING YOU BETTER. SAFER. MORE EFFECTIVE. MORE SUPPORTIVE.
These socialization classes are the BEST option for your dog or puppy. They can help even your less friendly pooch learn how to be comfortable and polite in social situations.
YES! Even if they’re nervous, hyperactive, or reactive!
WHY ARE THESE CLASSES FREE?
Many people ask… if these classes are so great… why are they free?
They’re free because you need them. They’re free because our community needs them.
Dog owner education and empowerment is one of the most important things that we can give you.
You NEED an alternative, safe option for your dogs and puppies to learn appropriate social skills.
The prevention of behavior problems often starts with SAFE, healthy socialization.
And teaching older dogs new, better social skills is something that helps everyone be happier!
WHAT MAKES THEM SAFER (AND BETTER)?
Our priority… is to teach your dog how to interact politely with other dogs (and people!), and to help them feel safe and protected when they need it… to promote positive interactions.
Scared dogs are given extra space, to make them feel safe. Over-exuberant “in your face” dogs are asked to slow down a bit.
Dogs and puppies are taught how to self-regulate play, to read other dogs and to know when “enough is enough”.
Impolite behaviors such as bullying, humping, and pushiness are not allowed, and dogs are taught how to make better social choices.
YOU are shown in real time how to spot conflict before it turns into a fight, how to recognize stress, over-stimulation, and other warning signs of a social situation gone wrong, so that you can keep your dog or puppy safe in the “real world”, and prevent serious behavior issues from developing over time.
Most of all… your dogs are ALWAYS monitored by experienced socialization experts, to make sure that your pup is set up for success.
HOW DO I SIGN UP?
Classes are starting soon, but evaluations are being provided to get you prepped and ready to go. We only have 10 spaces available per class (and 2 classes!), so make sure to grab your spot now!
Every dog is required to go through an initial evaluation, to make sure that we are providing for their needs the best way possible, and placing them in an appropriate social group.
The good news is, even if your dog doesn’t have great social skills, they still may be eligible (we rarely turn you away!)
Classes will be held once weekly, for 30 minutes. An initial evaluation fee of $75 will apply.* Classes following are free of charge.

*puppies or dogs who have gone through a training program will have this fee waived.
