Puppy Play Groups

Make Time for Puppy Play

Start Now

We originated puppy play groups in NYC 30 years ago. Due to current conditions, pups are dropped off and picked up (pet parents are not in attendance) for the one hour play groups for puppies 8-20 weeks old (count out weeks from date of birth). Sessions are moderated by two trainers in spaces that are separated dependent on pup size and play style. In addition to the benefits of healthy play interactions, your pup will learn to have fun whilst spending time away from their family (to help prevent separation issues), you'll enjoy a happily tired-out pup, and rest after play will help you in regards to your pup's house training schedule. Play groups are reserved for our training students in group class and/or in-person or virtual private lessons.

Please carefully read details and policies prior to registering and refrain from asking for an exception to these policies. There are no transfers or refunds for purchased sessions. Attendees must arrive at least 5 minutes before the start and end of each session. Late arrivals on either end affect our ability to adhere to our safety protocols, which is our highest priority. Late arrivals also cause stress to some pups that are currently suffering from separation issues. We greatly appreciate everyone's understanding and adherence to these policies as they are in the best interest of all of the wonderful pups. Play groups are reserved for our training students in group class and/or in-person or virtual private lessons.

Curriculum

  • Play groups are reserved for our students in group classes or private in-person or virtual lessons.
  • There are no transfers to other sessions nor refunds for play group registrations. Please do not ask us to make an exception. When registering you are agreeing to this policy.
  • Please arrive at least five minutes prior to the group. Late arrivals are not accomodated and will not be offered a refund or transfer. Once all pups are in the training space, neither trainer will leave and we can't ask staff at the different locations to assist in bringing pups to us. Please do not request an exception.
  • Please arrive at least five minutes prior to the play session end time. Arriving even a few minutes late delays the pick up process for all and may delay the group class and private lesson schedule.
  • Everyone must wear a mask and maintain 6 feet of distance (other than when briefly passing a pup from one person to another). Please have just one person briefly interact with the trainer.
  • We are taking videos and photos at play groups which are posted to our Instagram stories. Our Instagram account is AndreaArdenDogTraining. We are not able to send each pet parent videos and photos as we are running multiple play groups each week.
  • Play groups are reserved for our students in group classes or private in-person or virtual lessons.

Details

Health Department mandated proof of vaccines, which vary according to age, are required. You may upload via the link in your confirmation email or send to us at info@andreaarden.com.

For dogs under 16 weeks, at least one round of vaccines is required. The veterinarian’s signature is not required on this document for dogs under 16 weeks of age.

For dogs 16 weeks and older, the Health Department requires a signature from the veterinarian and must include rabies, parvovirus, parainfluenza, adenovirus, bordatella, and distemper. If your veterinarian chooses not to give your pup one or more of these vaccines, we must have a signed letter from them stating that it is contraindicated.

There are no transfers to other sessions or parties, nor refunds for play group registrations. Please do not ask us to make an exception. When registering you are agreeing to this policy.
