When you arrive for socialization class

  • make sure to have your dog on a 4-6 foot leash (no flexi/retractable leashes)
  • walk your dog on a loose leash calmly into the fenced area where you’ll have social, find a spot with space for you and your dog and have your dog sit next to you.
  • DO NOT LET DOGS MEET WHILE ON LEASH!
