Puppy Social Party

Please bring your puppy to our Puppy Social Party. Every Sundays from 11am to 12pm, we let our puppies loose and mingle with other little puppies that are 8 weeks up to 6 months. Our puppy party is 75% play time and 25% education. These puppy play party is monitored by Mary or one of her staff.

As you’ll see in our videos, we have a lot of fun…
