Puppy Socialisation

At Suffolk Dog Town, we believe that every dog deserves the best possible support and guidance in life. That’s why we offer professional & fun weekly puppy socialisation sessions, led by a qualified puppy class trainer in association with Whistle & Wag designed to get your pup on the right track. 

Whether you’re looking for a fun playdate or a structured course, we’ve got you covered. With our half-day socialisation sessions and 4-week puppy training course, your pup can get the best of both worlds. All this fun and education will help them to become a well-rounded and happy dog, ready for all the adventures life has to offer!

Puppy Socialisation Sessions

Our weekly puppy socialisation sessions are the perfect opportunity for your pup to learn essential social skills while playing, having fun, and most importantly, making friends! Your puppy will love learning how to interact, play, and share toys with other dogs at our gentle playdates, helping them grow into a perfectly well-mannered pooch!

Your pup will have plenty of time to get used to their new surroundings before being introduced to other calm, quiet dogs of a similar energy and encouraged to take part in some gentle play. We use canine enrichment games, such as snuffle mats and brain games, to encourage positive interactions and friendly, playful behaviour. Rest assured, our highly qualified team is always on hand to supervise and make sure everyone is having fun!
