WE OFFER PUPPY SOCIALIZATION SESSIONS & ADULT DAYCARE. These are held in two completely separate Yards.
PUPPY SOCIALIZATION SESSIONS
We will teach your puppy Doggy Manners, Socialization & Bite Inhibition.We are the only Facility in the area that offers Puppy Socialization Sessions.
Socializing your puppy between 8-16 weeks is THE most important things you can do. Please read this article by the AVSAB on just how important. American Vetinary Ass. Puppy Socialization Allow your puppy to visit us during this important period of his development and we will ensure your pup grows into a sociable confident adult dog. Research confirms that adult dogs that attended puppy kindergarten training and socialization classes before 16 weeks were less likely to exhibit problem behaviors than their litter mates that did not attend PKT. Here at Woofingham Palace we have seen how that the puppies that attend our Royal Puppy Training Class and Puppy Socialization Sessions always blossom into wonderful balanced adult dogs.
- 3 hour Socialization Session. A maximum of 10 puppies per session. This is held in a completely separate yard to our Adult Dog Daycare. We have toys to stimulate play and to prevent resource guarding, a ball pit to teach standing on uneven surfaces, pools to encourage positive behavior around water. There is a large wooden play structure which the puppies can explore and a large Union Jack rug to give them a relaxing spot to hang out, but they are taught that they potty on the artificial turf NOT on the play rug. The puppies learn different play styles from each other and the Staff will interrupt and redirect any bad behaviors before they become established bad habits, such as barking, bullying and humping. It also stops a dog from developing Separation Anxiety issues because they are having a positive experience without you around. These Sessions get booked very quickly and puppies in our Royal Puppy Training Class will be given access to available spaces in each session before puppies who attend training elsewhere.

After 4 hours of nonstop supervised play your dog is ready to go home and sleep it off. The average dog sleeps around 14 hours a day so this is an excellent way of allowing your dog to socialize with other dogs, exercise until he is tired then sleep it off at home. Don’t you think he would much rather catch up on his sleep at home rather than a cold, concrete kennel?
