Puppy Socialization is a safe way for your dog to meet other puppies!
Only $30 per four-week class.
FOR PUPPIES AGES 8 WEEKS TO 4 MONTHS OLD
Puppies go through a stage of social development that ends between 12 – 16 weeks. During this critical time, it is important to expose them to as many social situations as possible. Brief, positive interactions are key to developing self confidence and social skills.
Puppy socialization at Barx Parx is a great way for pups to practice their social skills. They will learn how to elicit and end play, how to use their mouths, and how to safely get along with other puppies.
Under the supervision of a certified professional in a sanitary environment, humans can ask puppy questions and learn about their own dog’s play style and personality.
This 4-week long force free, positive reinforcement socialization class is only $7.50 per class ($30 total)! Please note that all four weeks need to be consecutive.
MORE ON WHY EARLY SOCIALIZATION IS SO IMPORTANT FOR PUPPIES:
“Often times we are told to never take our new puppy out until they have been fully vaccinated. It’s wise advice considering the number of contagious illnesses that our dogs can receive if they haven’t received their shots, some of which can be fatal. Due to the caution we have to take, we reach a dilemma when it’s time to socialize our new puppy!
It’s generally accepted that to raise a well-adjusted dog we need to expose them to new people, places, things, and other dogs before their critical socialization window closes at around 3-4 months of age! Unfortunately, 4 months of age is usually when our puppies receive their final shot and are ready to enter society! A lot of people who wait until the critical socialization window is over find that their first outings are filled with fear responses that later develop into big behavioral issues.
Fortunately, puppy socialization classes are a great way to expose your new puppy to new experiences in a safe environment. In a puppy socialization class you will bring your new puppy into a classroom to meet other puppies that are close in age and size. The classroom will be disinfected beforehand and all of the puppies present will be up to date on their puppy vaccine schedule. In class your pup will receive lots of playtime with other pups as well as be exposed to new people and situations. You, as the new pet parent, will learn lots of helpful tips and tricks to help you in your puppy raising journey!
We do everything in our power to mitigate the risk of disease and the watchful eye of our trainers will make sure that every puppy is having a positive experience!”
