Puppy Socialization Program


Puppy Socialization Class at Scratch and Sniff Canine Services combines important manners and obedience skills with socialization and problem prevention in order to prepare your puppy for daily life and a smooth transition into adulthood.

We’ll address puppy play, nipping, counter surfing, greeting people politely, and more! The program manual offers guidance when you go home, with additional information on common puppy projects, including house training.

Enrol at 9 weeks of age, don’t miss out on critical weeks of socialization!

  • Disinfecting Floors is a top priority!
  • Health Form means you can be assured that all puppies are healthy and safe to play with.
  • Dog-Appropriate Rubber Flooring to prevent slipping during play.
  • Age Limit so your puppy will play with appropriate playmates.
  • Monitored and Narrated play keeps your pup safe while you learn about healthy play.
  • Wait Period Before Class means that incubating diseases aren’t appearing after starting class. This is another safeguard in keeping your pup healthy and safe.
