Small/Shy Socials are for puppies that need a little extra time to gain their confidence or are smaller in size, including toy, mini breeds, and puppies under 10 pounds

  • All first-time puppies under 10 pounds must attend Small/Shy!

  • Most first-time puppies over 10 pounds that are shy should plan on attending Small/Shy for their first social

Beginner Pups

Puppies still gaining their confidence and less rambunctious puppies

Beginners offers your puppy a safe introduction to playtime and other doggies. Even if your puppy has attended other socials, this will be a completely new environment for them, so your puppy will be a little hesitant when entering unfamiliar surroundings with unfamiliar dogs.

You'll be amazed at the high energy and play during the Beginners Social!

Kinder Pups

Puppies too confident for Level 1 socials but not quite ready for Level 3

Kinder Pups Social is unique to PETS Socials. We realized very quickly that many puppies are too confident for Level 1 Socials but not confident enough for Level 3 Socials — so Kinder Pups was born!

Kinder Pups is for puppies that are a little more confident but just learning self-control and how to listen. Kinder Pups Socials allow them to work on those skills with other puppies at the same level.

Ready to Attend a Social?

Step 2: Register your puppy
Step 3: Sign up for an upcoming social


My puppy is super friendly and energetic.  I don’t think “Small/Shy” or "Beginner" is the right hour for him!

Please still come to a Level 1 Social for your first social!

You’ll be amazed at how your “active” puppy who plays with anyone and everything at home suddenly becomes very shy when introduced to an unfamiliar and energetic environment filled with other puppies.

During your first social, if we determine that your puppy should move up to the next level, our trainers will speak with you to determine the next social you can attend.

Which vaccination records for my puppy do I need to provide?

DHPP—Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza

My puppy is over 18 weeks old but I’d like to bring her to socials. She is the sweetest puppy and plays well with other dogs in the neighborhood.

If your puppy is over 18 weeks old but you are still interested in bringing them to socials, please Contact Us to discuss

What can I expect at my first social?

Please visit the COVID-19 information page for details about what to expect during puppy socials at this time.

How will I know when my puppy is ready to move into the next level of socials?

Our professional trainers will work with you to determine the social we believe works best for them.  We place puppies based on temperament and confidence levels, and the socials work best when we have the correct level for puppies.  We will talk with you and answer any questions you might have during this process.  Once we decide on the correct social for your puppy, we ask that you come to that social moving forward.
