The benefits of playgroups include:
  • Freedom: Off-leash and out of kennel time for dogs is invaluable for burning off energy and reducing stress so dogs are more relaxed during training and when meeting potential adopters
  • Learning: Interaction with their own species can help dogs gain social skills that may improve their ability to play and interact with other dogs after adoption
  • Improved Cleaning Efficiency: Morning cleaning of kennels is easier when dogs are out in playgroups
  • Better Understanding Of Your Dogs: Time spent in a playgroup is time spent observing dogs; knowing more about our dogs allows animal centres to do a better job finding the perfect home
  • Fun: Having fun is mentally and physically stimulating for the dog
