Domestic isolation is a relatively new phenomenon and it causes many issues amongst dogs. i.e. reactivity—isolation it is unnatural. Dog socialization is more in line with a dog’s evolutionary biology. Hence, proper socialization has many benefits, including:
Dog Socialization Benefits:
Dogs become calmer at home, because they are more biologically fulfilled.
Reduces human and dog reactivity, because it requires your dog to tolerate one to enjoy the other.
We encourage your dog to explore other dogs away from you, which helps with separation anxiety.
Can help eliminate submissive urination, due to its confidence building effect.
Quiets excessive barkers, because is reduces anxiety.
Drastically lowers stress, which increases life-span.
Increases happiness as it balances the dog through biological fulfillment.
Improves obedience as a result of your dog getting enough "dog" time.
Helps build better life skills, because it encourages good decision making.
It can help dogs that fight with each other at home. As they can become a team during socialization and this can translate into the home environment.
The Doggy Social Club is a membership program. For $50 per month, you can attend weekly group socialization sessions with your dog.
Each socialization is limited to about 15 dogs, so we can keep an eye on everyone for maximum fun and safety.
We will add additional socializations as membership grows to keep group sizes in the target range.
You can attend one class per day on every day socials are offered. Minimum of one social per week available.
Prices are per dog and every dog needs to come with their own handler. All dog handlers need to be 18 years or older and kids under 18 years of age need to be accompanied by an adult handling your dog.
You're partner is welcome to join but may have to watch from the outside if we have too many people that day.
We evaluate all dogs prior to enrollment, because we want to team your buddy up in the best group. Should your dog not be ready to participate in our socials just yet—it's rare—our trainers can help you getting your furry family member ready.
Each socialization runs about 30 minutes, as after that time dogs get mentally (not physically) tired and can become less tolerant of other dogs.
You can attend classes in La Verne (enrolling now), Riverside (coming soon) and Temecula (coming soon) and you will always find current schedules and class dates on this page.
Group socializations are highly engaging and fun for your dog. You and your dog will love our socials!
We offer multiple-dog-discounts. Your 2nd and 3rd dog will each only be $25 more per month to participate in our socials. You can upgrade your membership subscription to include multiple dogs in your shopping account at HappyDogTraining.info after your first dog is signed up.
Your order confirmation email will contain detailed instructions on how to complete enrollment. Once you have completed all enrollment forms, we will schedule the initial evaluation for your dog and get you started.
