PUPPY and SMALL DOG OPEN SOCIAL PLAYGROUPS
For puppies up to 20 weeks old and small dogs.
MUST NOT go to off leash parks.
The purpose of this group is socialization and fun - in an environment that is as safe and clean as possible.
Pups are separated into two groups based on age (with puppies 9-14 weeks in one group and pups 15-20 weeks in another) and/or size. Occasionally, depending on enrollment and the size of the puppies participating we may suggest a group that differs from your pup’s age to provide them more optimal social experiences - for example, a St. Bernard puppy may go into the older group after a week or two.
COST: Cost is $5 per session
Sundays at 4pm - Large Puppy 15-20 weeks - (last entry 4:45 pm) - Book and pay for July 4th
Sundays at 5pm - All Small (small well-mannered dogs and puppies 9-14 weeks old) - (last entry 5:45pm) - Book & pay for July 4th
RESERVATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED
A maximum of 5 puppies participate in each class at this time to help ensure COVID-19 safety protocols are followed. If you have not reserved you are welcome to drop by and see if a spot has opened up (first come, first served). Please PAY ON LINE to keep cash handling to a minimum.
What to Bring: Bring treats, vaccination records (if they are not already on file with us), and your dog on a regular leash (not retractable). Note that puppies must have been in your home for a minimum of 7 days before they can attend their first playgroup.
Where: Play times are in our climate-controlled, clean facility with rubber flooring at 32 A Wells Street, Guelph, ON n1E 6B6
Kids: Well-mannered children are welcome. Children should not run & play with the dogs during the dogs' play time and must be supervised by someone 13 years+ NOT in charge of the dog.
