**We have reached our capacity for the socials and unable to take on new clients at this time. We hope to be able to resume in January 2022. We require all dogs be vaccinated for influenza and leptopirosis along with the typical rabies, parvo, distemper, hepatitis and bordatella. Thank you for doing your part in keeping everyone healthy and safe. 

Socialization (Social Hour) is a huge part of what we have to offer. We wholeheartedly believe dogs are fulfilled when they have the to opportunity 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.   

Most dogs can be trained to be among other dogs in an open yard environment but unfortunately there are some who do not fair so well. 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.  

Social Hours are held Monday through Friday in the early morning. If you reside within our service area, pickup from your house (depending where you live) is generally between 630-730 AM and drop off is usually between 9:30-10:30 AM. Because one needs to occasionally leave their house prior to our return, we ask that an arrangement be in place to put your dog back in your home or yard if necessary. **We ask that dogs 7 months and older be neutered/spayed to attend the socials. We have some flexibility so please share your circumstance with us to see if we can accommodate.
