Playgroup

Health Requirements: 1 week+ past health exam by primary vet, first DHPP, first deworming, & solid stool.

Proper socialization is like vaccinating your puppy against developing aggression/fear. During In Tune's structured Playgroup sessions, doggy parents and their pups will be matched with appropriate playmates. You will be taught how to read canine body language and perform consent tests. Learning these skills will de-escalate potential arguments and teach pups there are other options besides aggression (walking away and humans stepping in). Puppies will be exposed carefully to different objects, surfaces, and noises. Doggy parents will be taught how to socialize their pup in the real world using conditioning to form positive associations, how to catch and reward desired behaviors, and what to do when normal puppy behaviors aren't meshing well with human expectations.
