Puppies will be allowed to play in very carefully controlled small groups to ensure they learn good manners around other puppies, do not get scared, and do not learn to play roughly or aggressively.
Puppies will be matched for size, age, and experience, and play will be carefully supervised by your tutor to ensure that all puppies learn to be confident with others. When free and off the lead, puppies can learn and gauge body language of others well. On lead meets and greets at classes can cause frustration for confident puppies and anxiety for shy puppies so we discourage on lead interactions of puppies in classes.
Please note that, in some training classes, the mix of puppies may make it impossible to conduct puppy play sessions safely. Puppy play sessions will only be offered if they can be run without causing harm.
We unfortunately cannot offer this service for our Puppy School Online classes.
