Hope Puppy Play School Starts Jan 12th!

Did you just get a new puppy? You might be freaking out a little bit right now, wondering how to make sure your puppy gets the best start in life. You may feel like your socialization opportunities are buried in snow, they’re cooped up in your house until it’s dark, and you’re wishing your puppy could be playing all evening at the park. All puppies need to learn basic manners, and socialization and conditioning are pressing matters, especially for puppies born in the fall and winter months.

Luckily, if your puppy will be at least 9 weeks of age by January 12th, you can sign up for Puppy Play School in Hope, BC! Check out the class details here, and sign up your new best friend by calling the Hope Rec Centre:  604-869-2304!
