MHS Puppy Play School

Puppy Play School is an all-day/half-day daycare socialization and training program that runs on  Wednesdays and Fridays and is designed specifically for puppies between the ages of 8 weeks - 16 weeks.


What is Puppy Play School all about, and why is it so important?

  • Puppies learn appropriate play with other puppies and people.
  • Puppies are positively socialized to different sights, sounds and objects.
  • Puppies learn good manners such as sitting for petting, come when called, potty training, and more!

What makes Puppy Play School different than other daycare options?

  • Our Puppy Play School program is run by a Certified Professional Dog Trainer - Knowledge Assessed.
  • We only use reward-based methods when working with your puppy, avoiding the use of force and intimidation.
  • Puppies this young do not have all of their vaccines so we try to minimize the risk to your puppy while in our care. All puppies need to be up to date on age appropriate vaccines and provide a negative fecal before attending. In addition to this, Puppy Play School is held in a separate location from our regular daycare dogs.
  • Groups are kept small! We do not take more than 10 puppies a day. This ensures each puppy gets some individual time with our trainer.
