Play & Train includes three 10-minute sessions throughout the day. Short, multiple training sessions help keep your dog focused and avoids boredom or frustration during long sessions.

Puppy Playtime $10 per session

Socialization is such an important part of your puppy's development. Meeting and playing with other dogs allows your puppy to develop important social behaviors and confidence around other dogs and people. Our Bow Wow Behavior Buddies Puppy Playtime is a 30 minute play session with other puppies that allows your new companion to gain those skills. During each session, puppies will have free playtime supervised by our trainer. Owners are encouraged to ask questions. We can discuss any topics of interest including housebreaking, crate-training, chewing, socialization, nutrition, handling, and more. If your puppy is not quite old enough for Camp Bow Wow's doggie daycare, this is a great alternative to get them started!

Puppy Playtime is limited to 6 puppies. Your puppy must be 5 months of age or younger and current on vaccinations (see requirements below). Owners must be present during play at all times.
