A must go to destination for all new puppies! For puppies 8-16 weeks old. Socialization is vital for a puppy's proper development.  Puppies early imprint is where proper play, and calm friendly social skills are formed. Our drop-off playtimes allow you to take advantage of this early imprint time, especially now that socialization is being limited by social distancing. Puppies will learn appropriate play, bite inhibition, canine etiquette and how to socialize with other puppies in a controlled environment.  Sessions will be supervised by one of our puppy trainers.

Grooming is a learned behavior. If your puppy does not know what is going on around them, they do not know how to feel.  Come to a one-on-one puppy imprint grooming session. Our professional groomers spend loving time while your puppy is on the grooming table becoming familiar with the sounds and touches that are involved with grooming. All of this is done in a non-stressful environment.
