Puppy Parties

UPDATE AS OF FEBRUARY 12, 2021

PUPPY PARTIES ARE BACK!

Walkers had cancelled our Puppy Parties (for dogs under 2 years old) out of an abundance of caution due to COVID, but we are bringing them back in a manner that will adhere to CDC Guidelines for COVID safety.

Here are the rules:

  1. Only a limited number of dogs and people will be allowed to attend to permit social distancing
  2. We will NO LONGER accept walk-ins
    1. You must call in advance to make a reservation for your pup
    2. You must let us know in advance how many people will attend
    3. Walkers must receive all vet records in advance of the party
  3. Masks are required for all Humans entering the building
  4. Leashes are required for all Dogs entering the building (Unruly humans may also be leashed!)

Free for puppies (dogs under 2 years old) and their people. Puppy Parties are an occasion for puppies to romp, frolic, cavort, frisk, roll, jump, run, have fun and play with other puppies and people in a supervised environment.  Trainers and staff are available to answer any questions you may have about puppies.

These parties help puppies socialize and build positive experiences with new friends (both human and K9) helping them learn appropriate ways to behave.

At the Party, Puppy Playgroups are organized by size – so little pups aren’t overwhelmed by big ones.  All Puppy Parties are supervised by our staff.

We encourage everyone, especially children, to ask questions about what they see at the Puppy Parties.  This helps people learn about the many varieties of dogs, their behaviors as well as the many responsibilities of enabling a puppy to grow up to be a good dog!  If you have a dog, if you are thinking of getting a dog, or if you just like to see puppies playing, we welcome you!

In 2021 Walkers will be holding a Puppy Party at 3:00 PM on 2/20/21 at our Murrysville facility and on 2/27/21 at our New North Versailles facility

We will like to get back to holding them every month (Except for October and December when we hold our Howl-oween and Howl-iday parties!)… Stay Tuned…

Puppy parties are held “Rain or Shine” – outside in our fenced in play yards or inside if the weather doesn’t cooperate!

Check out the Event Calendar for Puppy Party dates and details.

Requirements:

ALL Puppies:

Veterinary records are required– so puppies don’t get each other sick:  Rabies, Distemper Series vaccinations must be current.  The Bordetella (Canine Cough) vaccine must be current and have been given at least 3 days before the party.  Walkers also requires proof of a negative fecal test.  The CIV vaccination is currently recommended but not required.  We encourage people to ask their Vet to fax these records to our attention prior to the party to facilitate the check-in process.
