Puppy Play Groups
ongoing weekly, held inside

Outside at Refreshing Paws
a boarding and grooming facility
132 Brackett Road
Gorham, Maine

Let's have fun, exercise your pups and learn about what is and isn't appropriate dog behavior and how to kindly intervene and redirect when necessary.

Saturdays in 2020
For puppies from the ages of 10 weeks old to 9 months old
up to 45 pounds

Puppy Play Group:  the Rock & Rollers

from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m.

For Puppies who already engage in chasing and wrestling


Puppy Play Group:  Building Confidence

from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m.

For Puppies who are not yet ready for chasing and wrestling 

●  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 and the space is large enough so that people can be more than 6 feet apart.   5 Puppies maximum for play group.

●  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;  you will be in the fenced, outdoor space with the puppies.  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. 

●  Since we will be working inside the air-conditioned training room, masks will be required.  

Cost:  $25 payable in advance to hold your spot.
