We want to help you raise a happy, healthy, confident dog, and that starts in puppyhood! Our puppy services are all designed to help socialize your pup to new people, places, and experiences.
What is puppy socialization?
The best time to socialize a puppy
Puppy daycare at Petropolis is a safe, convenient way to get your puppy the invaluable socialization they need at a young age. Our doggy daycare for puppies takes advantage of their critical socialization window where they are most susceptible to learning. While they are with us, they will learn socialization skills with other dogs and new people, setting them up for a lifetime of confidence in new situations. Plus, you won’t have to worry about them staying home alone during the day, meaning you won’t come home to accidents in the house or destructive behavior.
Your pup will spend their first day of puppy daycare with our Canine Evaluator, who will get to know them and match them with a play group that fits their size, energy level, and play style. They will get their energy out playing in our all-seasons heated and cooled play pavilion and romping in our dog water park, Canine Cove. Plus, they’ll learn basic manners and communication skills by playing and interacting with other dogs.
Want to set your puppy up for a lifetime of success? Enroll them in puppy training! Our team of experienced force-free trainers uses positive reinforcement-based methods to build your pup’s confidence and strengthen the human-animal bond. Getting started with dog training early is a great method of socializing your puppy to new people, places, and experiences. Plus, we help you tackle the most common goals and issues new puppy owners have. Give us a call to schedule your pup’s free one-hour training evaluation!

Basic Skills and Manners
We don’t just teach dogs to do as they’re told. Instead, we want to teach dogs the manners necessary to explore the world with their person. A puppy who learns manners young grows into an adaptable, polite dog who you can trust in different situations.
Leash training your puppy
We know you don’t want to leave your new puppy, but if you must, trust the puppy experts! Our puppy boarding options are designed with puppies’ needs in mind. We offer extra one-on-one attention to socialize your pup, group play with other puppies to get their energy out, and extra potty walks to keep them on-track with potty training. Our upgraded villas also offer 24/7 webcam access so you can keep an eye on your pup from anywhere in the world.
The key to raising a happy, empowered pet is socialization and acclimation. By creating a relaxing and happy grooming experience, we hope to build a foundation for a lifetime of stress-free grooming visits for both you and your pet.
