Puppy Socials

Growing Up Social –
Puppy Socialization Class

Our Growing Up Social Puppy Socials are for puppies that are 8 -16 weeks of age. We will go over handling exercises, proper play, confidence building, normal puppy problems like chewing, potty training, and nipping, and work on making the vet a happy place for your puppy.

We even sometimes get visits from cats and even pigs to help with socialization 🙂 Each Puppy Social has an education time and a puppy play time so you and your puppy can get the most out of it.

  • Socials are for puppies that are 8 -16 weeks of age.
  • Puppies must be dog and people friendly, current on age appropriate vaccinations, and have a negative fecal test/dewormed by vet to participate.
  • Please bring proof from your vet of vaccinations and negative fecal/dewormed by vet. For safety and health reasons puppies will not be allowed to participate without proof from a vet.
  • All puppies must be leashed until off leash play time. No Flexi leashes please.
  • Puppy socials are held at Progress Park Vet in Peru, IL.

Upcoming social dates are posted on our class schedule page.
