Drop-In Puppy Socials

Weekly in Pemberton

Suitable for puppies up to 20 weeks old

Our Puppy Socials are an opportunity to offer your puppy added playtime with other puppies to practice play skills, bite inhibition and manners. Playtime will also include adding novel surfaces, toys and sounds for your puppies to explore.

Socials are reserved for current & past students of Alpine Dogs Puppy School program. Drop-in for as many sessions as you’d like, however, space is limited to 4 puppies so make sure to register early.
