Nothing tires out a dog and teaches him socialization like playing with other canines. NHS Playgroups get you and your dog out of the house, and into the action.
What should I expect? In NHS playgroups, dogs will be able to interact and play with other dogs that are close in age and size. If you are looking for a way to give your dog some quality “dog playtime” and burn off energy, playgroup could be for you.
