This social combines play and obedience.

  • lots of play and lots of listening to you!  I.e., You won’t just be sitting around for this 50 minute social.

  • You will learn to monitor your Adolescent pup and give feedback during play while having a great time. Think “Simon says” event.

  • We practice healthy play habits and listening skills. Teen pups still to need to get their wiggles out, but must start learning decorum, rules of engagement and listening to your directives.

You and your pup will practice:

  • Doggie play breaks for self-control

  • sit, stay and collect yourself!

  • go play

  • voice control and play breaks: hands off!
