Drop Off Puppy Socialization Classes

For puppies 8-18 weeks

Your dog MUST be under 14 weeks for your first scheduled class, and no older than 18 weeks for your last scheduled class!

Our socialization and training classes are veterinarian recommended and approved! 

All of our Puppy Socialization & Training 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.

Note About Vaccinations & Socialization

If you have concerns about vaccinations and socialization, please feel free to email us for more information, or click HERE for the official position statement from the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior.

How Drop Off Class Works: Puppy Parents will drop their puppies to us for the 65 minute class. Our training team will supervise and guide the puppies during playtime, as well as working on our “Pay Attention” commands, leash etiquette, handling, noise desensitization, and more!
