Puppy Socials

Up to 16 weeks of age, puppies are sponges for all kinds of experiences. Behaviorists call this the ‘Socialization Period.’ Be sure to safely expose your pup to all types of people, puppies (of similar age) and stuff in your life. Playgroups are split into age/playstyle-appropriate groups and are closely supervised. Come to a Puppy Playgroup for a safe, socialization experience!

Puppy Socials are held at Rumford Pet Center in East Providence.

  • Tuesday, 7 pm
  • Thursday at 6 pm
  • Saturday, 10 am

Puppies should be between 8 and 16 weeks of age to start. Bring the completed Registration Form, with proof of at least one DHPP shot and a negative fecal test by your own veterinarian (not the breeder or rescue group). Puppy Socials are $10 per visit. (You can also buy a Pass: buy 10 and get one free for $100)

Please call ahead to reserve a spot your first time coming: 401-714-5652
