Class Offerings for 2021

Puppy Socialization Classes (for puppies 8-18 weeks)

We have multiple offerings available for our veterinarian recommended and approved puppy socialization classes. 

All of our Puppy Socialization Classes are held at City Tails Daycare. Their amazing facility is cleaned and sterilized with NYC Department of Health approved products, and is cleaned directly before we arrive. Further, we only work with daycares who implement thorough COVID-19 safety practices, and enforce strict vaccination rules with their clients. 

All puppies who come to our classes must have already begun their vaccinations, and are only permitted into our classes if they’ve seen legitimate veterinarians. Our classes are safe because all the puppies are within their series of shots, and we limit the age range of the class to ensure that this remains true.

Drop Off Puppy Socialization Classes

How Drop Off Class Works: Owners will drop their puppies to us for the 75 minute class. Our training team will supervise the puppies during playtime, as well as working on our “Pay Attention” commands, leash etiquette, handling, noise desensitization, and more! Puppy Parents will receive supplemental training materials, videos, and lesson plans by email to accompany what their pups learned in class.

Puppy Socialization Classes (with parents)

Due to COVID-19, this class format is not currently available. Please check back for future class dates.

Each of our Puppy Socialization classes focuses on a specific puppy related topic. We also introduce the foundation of our training by teaching our “Pay Attention” commands. The puppies receive crucial desensitization to NYC noises and activities, as we reenact these sights and sounds during their off-leash playtime. Your pups will also meet Walter, Kate’s 7 lb Chihuahua, who is the best teacher in town. Walter helps guide and discipline the puppies during off leash playtime, an invaluable socialization experience!

During our off leash time, canine body language and social cues are also discussed in depth. We end the class with “Pass the Puppy,” a handling exercise to help new puppies tolerate and accept higher stress situations, like grooming and vet check-ups.
