Is Your Puppy Ready to Start Learning?

Training should start as soon as you bring your puppy/dog home.

Puppies just want to discover and play… and chew, bite and bark. Without the proper guidance, bad behaviors can set in quickly. Puppies become better behaved when they are given clear rules and boundaries, and when they receive positive reinforcement for good behavior.

Puppy Socialization

Training for puppies begins with proper socialization. Our FREE Puppy Social Hour classes are held weekly.

Classes are great opportunity for your puppy plays with new friends. This program is designed for puppies up to 6 months old

  • This program is for puppies only.
  • Although the program is free, registration is required. Call 215-345-6960 to speak with a reservation specialist about which evening class is best for your puppy.

If this is your first class...

Our staff will meet pet parents outside about 7:20 to start checking in the puppies for class. Puppy Social Hour officially begins at 7:30 pm.

Since this is a puppies-only program, we ask pet parents to respect social distancing recommendations outside of our daycare yard. You are welcome to wait in your car, take a walk, or return when dismissal begins about 8:20. The puppies are more comfortable playing and making new friends when they know you are not watching at the fence or windows. When they can hear or smell you, their attention is on you rather than playing.


The puppies will be fully supervised. A professional trainer and additional staff members will introduce your puppy to the small group and facilitate proper play. A staff member will take photos (and sometimes videos) to share on the Holiday House Pet Resort & Training Center Facebook page.

We welcome questions about the program or how your puppy did during check in or dismissal.
