What is special about AGDT Puppy Socials?
From birth until your puppy is 4.5-months old, she is in a crucial developmental phase. It is during this short window that your puppy will learn everything she needs to know about the things she will encounter in this crazy human world. It is essential that you take your puppy out and expose her to everything in life, in a positive way, during this time. That can be difficult to do, however, because puppies aren’t fully vaccinated and the streets of NYC pose a serious risk. Worse than that, many places that offer puppy playgroups are not fully educated about the proper sanitary procedures for unvaccinated puppies and they allow the playgroups to run out of control. At AGDT we consult regularly with veterinarians to ensure proper sanitation protocols, and we provide trainer-regulated play sessions that give your puppy the opportunity to play without being overwhelmed or bullied.
Our puppy socials have themes, games, and carefully thought out routines that help to set you and your puppy up for a lifetime of happiness and success. Puppy social is great exercise and mental stimulation for your puppy (allowing you to have more peace throughout your day). It is also an ideal place for our trainers to spot early warnings signs of serious behavior issues so that we can stop them before they start. And, of course, puppy socials are a fantastic way to meet other people in the community who are learning and growing with their own pups. We pride ourselves in fostering a sense of community. New moms have support groups! New puppy parents should too! :)
Puppy Socials run 5 times per week. It is $100/10-pack or $20 to drop in.
