Puppy Social Commotion
A weekly Puppy Play Group

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.

Next on Saturday, June 3, 2023
10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

For puppies from the ages of 10 weeks old to 7 months old
up to 35 pounds

Puppies with differing play styles will be separated with gating


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.  A body harness is preferred with a flat collar as back-up.   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 outside for potty breaks. 

We will be working inside the climate controlled training room which has a rubber-covered floor.  8 Puppies maximum for play group. 

Cost: $25 per session, payable in advance,
or purchase 3 sessions for $65 and save $10!
(To be used within 5 weeks of initial purchase: sorry, no refunds)
