  Back to Training Overview




When you get a puppy, we don't recommend immediately going to the dog park. Dog parks can have unvaccinated dogs, people may not be paying attention, there are different sizes of dogs and levels of aggression, and the dog park may not be as clean as you would prefer.

That's why we offer "puppy socials," one of the greatest ways to introduce your puppy to group play and social interaction.

Why our puppy socials are so great:
  • Supervised by one of our trainers, while you watch and participate
  • Off-leash play, plus fun games and training exercises
  • Training advice, including handling unwanted behavior during play
  • We confirm that all dogs are properly vaccinated
  • The room is kept very clean
  • The weather doesn't matter
  • Your puppy can play with others that are its same size

It's also fun to interact with other dog owners and make some new friends in the neighborhood!

We offer three types of puppy socials:
  • Tiny Tots: For puppies who are 15 pounds and under
  • Whippersnappers: For puppies who are bigger than 15 pounds
  • Confidence Builder: For puppies older than 14 weeks who are on the shy side and still learning to build their confidence. No size restriction.

You can choose which format is best-suited for your puppy.

We recommend signing up for at least 3-4 puppy socials in order to help your puppy become well-socialized and as highly prepared as possible for dog parks, daycare, boarding, the beach, and much more.


Overview of Puppy Socials (1:13)

Violet (my dog) and I did the Whippersnapper puppy social with Jordan Wright. This course serves as an excellent way to safely socialize our dogs during COVID-19. We took this puppy social course before our obedience classes. As for the instruction of the course, Jordan was knowledgeable, gifted at puppy-appropriate positive reinforcement methods, and handled the puppies (and their families) well. The social was such a great experience that my dog and I thoroughly enjoyed. I learned so much about how my dog socializes, plays and communicates. This offering went above and beyond my expectations of the course. I look forward to our basic obedience course at Tucker Pup's, and many more trainings to come!
