While your tiny tike runs, plays, trains and is introduced to new items (tunnels,platforms etc) they are learning important social skills and build a foundation that will last a lifetime. A confident dog is a happy dog. Puny Paws is great for all smalls, but particularly helpful for building confidence in shy ones. Bring your petite wallflower to PP and watch her bloom! A tired dog is a good dog PP manage your small dog’s pep. An dedicated romp and train will leave you with an easy, relaxed dog. Small dog people are cool Puny Paws is a great opportunity to meet other cool dog lovers, and to chat with pretty cool trainers, too.

Introduce your puppy to the experiences and equipment they will encounter when they start agility training… or just give them some exposure to Fun With Weird Objects!

It’s also fantastic for teaching puppies how to problem solve and confidently explore new things they may encounter in life.

We also show you some fun training games that can be done at home.
