FOR PUPPIES ONLY! Adult dogs can sometimes frighten puppies with their size or rough play. Schroeder's Puppy Romp is just for puppies 10 weeks to under 6 months and current on the immunization series. Cost is $8.00 per visit or $40.00 for a "six pack" package. Puppy Romp is moderated by dog trainer, Kirsten Nielsen, PhD every Sunday (except major holiday weekends) from 1:00 to 2:00 pm. No reservation or application required.
Behaviorists have determined in order for puppies to become well-adjusted dogs, positive interactions with new dogs and people must begin during the "critical period" between 8 to16 weeks of age. Early socialization of your puppy will help to create a confident, well-adjusted adult dog.
More veterinarians are recognizing that a lack of early socialization has become a much greater risk than exposure to diseases.
The facility at Schroeder's Den is cleaned and sanitized daily. Only vaccinated dogs are allowed and there are no dogs in the facility for 42 hours prior to the Puppy romp.
