Requirements to attend Puppy Socials at Doggedly Devoted IMG_3338 Age: puppies must be 8 to 16 weeks old Vaccinations: We allow puppies at Puppy Socials who are current on their DHPP vaccination series. We also recommend getting the bordetella vaccination. RSVP: Please call or email for more information on puppy classes: 212-426-7232 or Training Curriculum Our Puppy Socials have a training component designed by certified professional dog trainer Megan Coryat. Every week the class will cover the basics of puppy learning, such as sit, recall, house training, and how to decrease unwanted behavior. Additionally, rotating topics that will repeat every 6 weeks include walking on different surfaces, getting comfortable with people wearing costumes, increasing comfort with wheeled objects, interacting with children, cognitive games, and learning agility equipment.
Disclaimer: There are inherent risks to allowing your puppy to come to a dog care facility, but we do our best to mitigate those risks by disinfecting the playroom before each puppy social. We do not, however, require people to disinfect their shoes, and we do allow puppies to attend who are already walking on the street. Consult with your vet to see if he or she is comfortable with the precautions we take. We believe that the benefits of attending socials far outweigh the risks.
