FREE Puppy Hour!
in West Columbia

Start your pup on the right paw! 

At Central Bark, our mission is to nurture and enrich dogs’ lives – and what better way than through puppy socialization?! Positive experiences with new dogs, humans, and environments is a critical part of a puppy’s healthy social development. These early experiences help your dog develop comfort and confidence and positively affect their lifelong emotional development, building a strong foundation for a healthy, happy, and socially appropriate dog.

Puppy Hour is a FREE supervised play and social hour for puppies held on Saturdays from 11am–noon starting January 16. We invite you and your puppy to attend as many sessions as you would like until your pup reaches the age limit.

During this one-hour session, your pup will:

  • Enjoy off-leash play with vaccinated puppies of similar ages.
  • Be supervised by an experienced caregiver to ensure all play is safe and appropriate.
  • Be exposed to new and exciting obstacles to encourage age-appropriate socialization and exposure.

You will also receive a FREE Central Bark Puppy Parent Handbook, containing helpful tips for raising your healthy, happy, well-rounded puppy.

Preregistration and proof of up to date Bordetella and DHPP vaccines is required. Please observe CDC guidelines including social distancing and wearing masks.
