Puppy Parties were created to give puppies (8 weeks to 7 months) a safe place to run, romp, wrestle and just be a puppy! Parties are held on the last* Wednesday of every month from 5-6pm. Each party has a fun theme to help puppies explore and socialize! Puppies can stop by at any time and stay for a few minutes, or the whole time! Cost for the Puppy Party is only $5! Below are the dates & themes for the 2019 Puppy Parties (you can also find them on our calendar here).
