DOGGY SOCIAL: Holiday Pawty for Big Dogs
Due to the canine respiratory virus (CRV) we have decided to cancel all off-leash socials until 2024.
ABOUT THE EVENT:
At the Playground, we offer a safe and controlled environment of fun with lots of activities on 1-acre of fenced-in land, including confidence building equipment, a digging box, natural fitness stations, tire tunnels, enrichment toys, and more! There is also plenty of social time for pups to meet and make new friends.
Join us for a special holiday celebration at the Golden Dog Playground for our bigger dog friends (25 lbs. and over). Humans will be treated to delicious homemade chili and warm drinks. We will also have the heater going to help keep you toasty. In addition, you are encouraged to have your dog bring a gift valued at $15 or less for our pup gift swap. Bring a gift to swap and your dog will leave with a gift. This will be a dog gift version of a traditional Yankee Swap.
Doggy socials are perfect for dogs that have good social skills and have been exposed to a pack of dogs in the past.
Your dog will benefit from:
- Positive social exposure to other dogs and people in a controlled environment;
- Focused activities that provide mental and physical stimulation;
- Guidance from an experienced dog handler on proper play and rest;
- Access to a multi-sensory environment that includes open field and wooded areas.
IS THIS EVENT GOOD FOR REACTIVE DOGS?
This event is NOT good for reactive dogs, puppies, or dogs that have not yet experienced a pack of loose dogs. Also, if your dog has any resource guarding behavior this event would not be good for them. Please do not sign up if you feel your dog would be uncomfortable in this social situation since we want all people and dogs to be safe and have a positive experience. If you have concerns or questions about if this event is right for your dog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
