● At this time each puppy may bring only one human to play group. (Sorry! Take video for your family!) We will be practicing social distancing during play groups. All humans are wearing masks during Play Groups.
● All pups must be current on Parvovirus and Distemper vaccines (Abbreviated "DHPP" or "DAPP").
● Please bring your pup on a regular 6 foot leash attached to a flat collar or body harness. You will also need to bring treats! We will want to reward them for coming when called (during play that can be challenging!) and for when we restrain them to take them back out of the space.
Winter, 2020 - Spring, 2021: We will be working inside the heated training room, masks will be required. 8 Puppies maximum for indoor play group.
Spring, 2021: We will be working outside in a grassy, fenced area in rural Gorham. 10 Puppies maximum for outdoor play group.
