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!
Half Day Session - £23.00
Our puppy socialisation sessions are strictly mornings only – drop them off between 8am and 9am and pick them up at lunchtime after their fun-filled morning (this also helps with separation anxiety)! All puppies must be fully vaccinated, including for Kennel Cough.

When it comes to puppy training, the earlier the better! As soon as your pup is fully vaccinated, they’re ready to start learning and socialising. Many trainers recommend starting classes as early as 8-10 weeks old, as this is when puppies are most receptive to new experiences; soaking up everything around them like sponges and learning at an incredible rate. By starting early, you’ll be giving your pup a head start on learning important skills and behaviours.
Puppies are welcome to join the family at Suffolk Dog Town as soon as they’re 12 weeks old and fully vaccinated (they must have both sets of vaccinations, including Kennel Cough). Our popular puppy training classes and puppy socialisation sessions are the perfect way for your pup to develop their social skills and become a confident, well-rounded doggy!
