Playgroups

 

Play is an important part of a dog’s development. It provides an outlet for exercise, physical and mental stimulation, a way to develop physical skills,  and social opportunities with other dogs. Unfortunately, finding good, safe ways to provide puppy play can be difficult. Puppy socialization playgroups provide an alternative to dog parks and daycares, giving puppies a chance to play and learn in a supervised environment.

Play is held rain or shine–our playgroups are held in the beautiful playfields at Crystal Creek Farms. The field has grassy footing that is forgiving on puppy’s joints, protecting them from the pounding that can occur on packed dirt and concrete surfaces. Your puppy will likely get dirty–bring a towel! We do cancel play for extreme temperatures or dangerous weather.

Play is always supervised by a trainer, there to ensure the dogs model good doggy behavior to each other, to interrupt less desirable interactions and to answer any questions you might have so that you can learn what play is healthy and what is not.

For shy or timid dogs, playgroup can work wonders. Allowing shy dogs to observe normal dog interactions in a non-threatening environment can help them come out of their shells. For energetic dogs, well—let’s just say there is no better way to tire your puppy out than playtime with other dogs!

All dogs must be pre-registered for their first play session. Adult dogs must be social and dog friendly. Male dogs 8 months and older must be neutered. Female dogs may not attend while in heat.

All puppies must have had their first set of vaccines, been in your home for 2 weeks or more, and have had a recent clear fecal exam. Dogs must stay current on vaccines, and present a new, clear fecal exam every six months.
