@PawsWay June 2012: Send your puppy to kindergarten

They grow up so fast. First they poop all over the floor and nibble on your fingers, then before you know it they are on the school bus and mingling with other puppies in kindergarten. Join other dog owners at the Toronto PawsWay at Harbourfront on Queens Quay - a place for pets and pet lovers. Enjoy the time before they go away to dog university, partying your money away!
If your dog has already learned all it, maybe they are a little nerdy, a little Big Bone Theory type of dogs, then I can highly recommend catching the Woofjocks weekend. These photos were taken at a recent Woofjocks event.

Here are the pet friendly events on in June 2012 at PawsWay.

1. Puppy Kindergarten. Learn everything you need to know about being a new puppy owner, from obedience, grooming to socialization and behaviour.
