Off-lead socialisation

Puppy Playgroup is designed to meet the needs of baby puppies.

You can start Playgroup any week. It is ideal to join whilst waiting for a start date on the Puppy Foundation course.

Playmates for your puppy are carefully selected, so that your puppy gains confidence if she is shy.

Research shows that having positive experiences with other dogs at a very young age greatly reduces the chances of a dog developing aggression towards other dogs, later.

The fact that I have a dog who is so calm, friendly, easy-going, playful and unperturbed by other dogs, has so much to do with her early positive and safe, experiences at Playgroup.
