What: Puppy greeting party at Ahimsa Dog Training in Seattle. Participants will dress in costumes and bring their friends, so that puppies will have plenty of people to practice polite, brave greetings with. Firemen, mail carriers, pizza deliverers, veterinarians, etc.! Puppies will walk around the block and encounter these various people. They’ll get treats for polite greetings and have a lot of fun! We’re not blocking off the street, so it’s more of an Around the Block Party, but you get the point…
Why: Dogs can be fearful and aggressive to people that look different in some way from what they consider ‘normal,’ so we socialize them to get used to a lot of different kinds of people. This event is designed to help socialize puppies, practice not jumping up, promote awareness of the importance of continued socialization, and to celebrate the launch of Grisha Stewart’s new puppy DVD, “Give Your Puppy¬† a Choice: Modern Socialization and Training.” (Grisha is the owner of Ahimsa.) The Puppy Choice DVD will be available for half-off during this puppy socialization event ($11.99 versus the regular $23.95).
Who: 30 Puppies with complete vaccinations (all except for rabies) as this is an outdoor event. Up through 10 months old. Note that our regular puppy kindergarten classes are for much younger puppies, who do not need their complete shots in our clean facility.
Where: Ahimsa Dog Training, 902 NW 49th Street, Seattle
How: Register online at https://ahimsadogtraining.com/class/puppyblockparty.php This is a FREE EVENT.
