Saturday Socials are Open to the Public!

Let your puppy or small dog play with others their size and learn crucial social skills at our Saturday Socials. We will divide the dogs into different indoor play areas within our center in Richmond, CA. These groups are based on age, activity level, size, and personality. A qualified handler will be on-site to provide feedback about your dog’s development and social needs.

Participation is open to the whole family. Parents are expected to provide oversight of any children attending the social. Pet parents are expected to clean up after their puppy using the cleaning systems provided by Metro Dog. Owners are responsible for their puppy’s behavior and must remain within eyesight at all times. $10 per puppy/dog. Cash or card accepted at the social.

Veterinarians specializing in behavior recommend that owners take advantage of every safe opportunity to expose young puppies to the great variety of stimuli that they will experience in their lives. Enrolling in puppy classes prior to three months of age can be an excellent means of improving training, strengthening the human-animal bond, and socializing puppies in an environment where risk of illness can be minimized.
