Socialization (Social Hour) ​is a huge part of what we have to offer. We wholeheartedly believe dogs are fulfilled when they have the opportunity to play and socialize with their own kind in an open yard setting. We believe it is vital that dogs of all shapes and sizes learn proper manners while playing with others. Safety is our first concern. Rough housing is discouraged and instead replaced with fetch, tug-a-war, and a friendly game of chase. All the dogs are taught to respect one another and to play with only those who wish to play.   

Social Hours are scheduled in the mornings Monday through Friday. If you reside within our service area, pickup from your house (depending where you live) is generally between 6:15-7:30 AM and drop off is usually between 9:30-10:30 AM. We prefer all dogs 7 months and older be neutered/spayed to attend the socials.

Many dogs do very well among other dogs in an open yard setting but some do not fair so well at first. Because safety is our first priority, assessments are conducted prior to dogs joining the socials to see how your dog interacts with others and whether some basic training might be needed first.
