The Application Process

Step 1: Review Your Eligibility

Our number one priority is puppy safety. Please make sure your business practices, location and environment is suitable for curious, four-pawed visitors before submitting a membership application. Also see business member exclusions.

If the answer to each of the following questions is YES, you're a great candidate for a Socialization Destination™.

  • Does your business carry insurance for you, your location and your employees (if you have any)?
  • Is your location puppy-safe, with toxic or easy to break items out of reach?
  • Are you prepared to clean up the odd puppy accident with disinfectant?
  • Can you reliably provide passport stamps to visiting puppies?
  • Are NO animals of any kind sold within your store?

Yes on all counts?

Then, you're our kind of business and we'd love to hear from you. And, just so you know, our puppy owners work with highly qualified trainers and adhere to The Puppy Owner's Pledge.
