Puppy Play & Learn 


The ONLY group Puppy Play in New Westminster with an Experienced & Accredited DogTrainer. 

Expect nothing less for YOUR New Fur Baby!

Cathie Tims, CPDT-KA

Learning and Practicing Dog / Dog  Social Skills is a Critical Part of Early Socialization.


A responsible breeder will ensure that your pup's critical early socialization is well on its' way prior to coming home to you. Read the AVSAB Position Statement On Puppy Socialization.  The 'window of opportunity' for optimum socialization closes anywhere from 12  - 16 weeks.  

Puppy play and learn groups are carefully planned to ensure that every pup has the best opportunity for a safe, positive and successful social experience.  

In our puppy play and learn groups, your puppy will learn healthy and appropriate play, have the opportunity to practice social skills and communication, explore new things, build their confidence, learn bite inhibition and so much more!
