Our hearts! The DSCPA is holding Puppy Play Dates from now until Christmas

Lads, our hearts.

If you fancy just taking some time to play with a little puppy then all your dreams have been answered.

The DSPCA has set up a Puppy Play Date events which will see you being able to spend 45 minutes with little pups aged between 8 weeks to 6 months. Again, OUR HEARTS.

All that is wanted is for the puppies to be in a fun and safe environment so they can learn social skills. It will also help any potential owners to bond with their puppies that could last a lifetime.

Each session is 45 minutes long and will take place every Saturday up until December. Sessions will start at 10am.

Speaking of the benefits of play dates for small pups, a spokesperson from King of Paws Dog Training Academy said: “Early puppy socialisation is critical.

“Puppies that grow up in isolation both from other dogs as well as from a wide variety of humans have a greater tendency to develop behaviour problems later in life such as fear-based aggression.  Puppy play dates are a great way to socialise puppies.”
