Drop-off Puppy Play: Thursday, May 6 – May 27 at 5:15pm with Kate Rosenthal

(Puppies under 16 weeks old) During Covid-19 times, social distancing makes it difficult for pups to socialize with other dogs and humans. Since early socialization is key to your dog’s well-being, the HSSC has devised this special class. Drop off your pup for supervised play with other dogs, go do an errand or get a cup of coffee, and then come back forty-five minutes later to pick up your tired, happy pup. What vaccinations are required for a puppy class? Proof of at least one distemper/parvo combination vaccine at least seven days prior to start of class. Proof of current rabies vaccination if puppy is over four months. Proof of current bordetella vaccination. Please take a photo of vaccinations and email to dogtraining@humanesocietysoco.org Photo proof of vaccinations must be emailed two days prior to the start of in-person classes or your dog will not be able to attend class.
