To join Teen Play, you must have done all 3 of the following:

  • attended Puppy Kindergarten or Puppy Elementary at Ahimsa
  • obtained a referral from your Ahimsa class instructor
  • received permission to join the group from Wynona or Klara.

If your pup meets this criteria or if you have any questions, please email wynona@doggiezen.com.

(Note: This group may not appropriate for all dogs, even those who are fine at dog daycare or off leash parks.  This is because adolescent dogs are developing social skills and preferences and may behave differently in an enclosed space than they do on walks or during one-on-one play.)

Play & Train Notes:

Kids: Well-mannered children are allowed. Children should not run & play with the dogs during the dogs’ play time. The Play & Train is designed for puppies to learn how to socialize with each other. It’s a busy environment and the Ahimsa staff will be focused on ensuring that puppies are safe and confident. If you bring children to attend the play time, chances are good that we’ll ask them to hang out quietly in their own area since not all puppies are comfortable with children, and most puppies get very excited when kids run or play near them, which can escalate play and even get your child nipped by an overexcited puppy.
