All you need to do is bring the pup’s favorite treats, a six foot leash only (sorry, retractable leashes are not allowed), and a secure collar. Training collars may also be needed with trainers approval or recommendation.

Classes are limited to 8 puppies to ensure personalized attention.
Please call 704-291-9999 to confirm your spot on Thursday afternoons.

The Fine Print
For puppies 2 to 12 months.

For dogs under 4 months of age, at least one round of vaccines is required. For dogs 4 months (16 weeks) or older a record of their vaccinations must be signed by your veterinarian and include vaccine for rabies, bordatella, and distemper. If your veterinarian chooses not to give your pup one or more of these vaccines at the time, we must have a signed letter from them stating that it is contraindicated. Entry to play groups and group classes is not permitted without required, veterinarian signed proof of vaccinations or a signed letter from the veterinarian stating they are contraindicated at the time. This is required by the Health Department. Any puppy showing signs of illness, coughing, or eye/nose discharge, will be turned away.
