Our Puppy Playgroup is the perfect way to introduce your puppy to training and socialisation in a no pressure, fun and safe environment.
Suitable for puppies from as soon as they've had all of their vaccinations up to 26 weeks, this is the most opportune time to begin to introduce your puppy to new sights, sounds, smells, experiences, people and of course other puppies!
It's also a great opportunity to connect with other puppy owners, and of course we'll be on hand to answer any training questions and give you support with any of the typical puppy struggles you may be experiencing.
Our Puppy Playgroup takes place weekly on a Thursday evening at 6pm at Springwell Community Venue, Springwell Village. Each session can be booked individually - no need to commit to a full course. Whether you want to come along every week or join us for a single session, we'd love to see you there!
Our Puppy Playgroup is the ideal way to gently grow your pup's confidence, making the very most of the precious socialisation period and helping to prepare your puppy for training. If you're already attending a training course with your puppy, then our no pressure play sessions can be a great way to help your puppy to adapt to different environments and learn how to deal with different distractions, all while having fun.
Booking is easy - just click on the link below and toggle through the calendar to find the date of your choice. Our playgroup runs every Thursday at 6pm at a cost of £8 per session.
Sessions do fill up quickly so we recommend booking in advance.

Join us in the zen zone and we'll take you through some easy, gentle and enjoyable techniques to help your pup to learn how to be calm, settled and relaxed.
