I've been taking my German shepherd there since 12 weeks and the staff at puppyworks has done an amazing job! I cannot recommend this place enough for puppy socialization

We took our puppy for his first puppies interaction. The people there are very helpful and my puppy enjoyed it really well. The first 30 minute session is free for a puppy. I will totally recommend this.

This is so great for my 11 week old shy puppy! Peak hours can be a little overwhelming in terms of staff to puppy ratio, but more than once I’ve seen a staff come over and address my shy puppy in the corner even with 10-15 puppies in the room. Quieter midday hours are great for easy going puppy play. She’s growing so much thanks to them! I’ll mention I’d pay to just sit in a room full of puppies, let alone watch my pup grow with extra supervision.

I'm really surprised that so many people recommended this place to us as new puppy parents considering there isn't much in the facility itself. You pay $14 an hour to literally just let your puppy play with other puppies for 30 minutes. Reservation process could be better. Even if there are spaces open for your pup, they remove the ability to reserve 4+ hours ahead of time on their website. You have to reserve 5 hours ahead of time, you cannot pop in. For the price and hype I honestly expected the facility to be bigger so the pups have more space to run and to be more of a puppy park with ramps or tunnels or something. This is just an empty warehouse. Also, they have chairs for puppy parents to sit while the pups play but they are located inside the play areas so the pups just tend to run under your chair. It would have been smarter to place seating around the play areas. Another thing .. the attendees throw kibble on the ground to separate the pups if they group together but they never disclose this to you ahead of time. The 3 times my pup has gone there he has had upset stomach and been really gassy the whole way home. I now ask that they don't put any down near him but they still do.

If you aren't socializing your puppy yet, I recommend starting here as early as possible! My puppy enjoyed playtime here once a week as a safe social supplement to his puppy Kindergarden class. He grew out of his shyness almost immediately once he started here! Young puppies really need to develop social skills with other dogs their age before they hit adolescence or they can end up with behavioral issues. Seattle Puppyworks offers a safe indoor space for puppies who haven't finished all of their rounds of vaccines to interact with other puppies and learn how to play. The trainers are exceptional and very attentive: they're happy to give advice and will also keep you updated on how your puppy is progressing socially, and they use (and encourage) positive reinforcement training, which I appreciate. You get to sit and watch the puppies play while you're visiting, which can make for some great stories and photos! A play session will also wear a puppy out for most of the day since they get all their zoomies out in one sitting. Do yourself a favor and let your puppy play here while they're still a cute little sponge for social skills!

Great place to bring your pup for socialization and not have to pay for lame training that you can do yourself at home.

I absolutely love Seattle Puppyworks! I have been taking Oslo AKA oslotheblackpug here ever since my partner and I adopted him and at first I was a bit skeptical because being a new pet owner, I had no idea what the heck I was doing. Everyone here makes you feel welcome, informed and the puppies here are so cute! Our favorite hooman here is Nozomi Momo. She is a sweetheart and treats our pup as if he was one of her own. She takes the time to answer our questions and even plays with the pups to make sure they have a great time. I have nothing but great things to say about her and this place. Oslo has made some new puppy friends and it is great to have a place nearby l, that I can trust!

Took our puppy for socialisation and had a good experience. The trainers are great and monitor all puppy play closely to make sure it's fair and fun for all puppies. The facility is also clean and well maintained.

We took our puppy here multiple times throughout his puppy-hood and we couldn’t have been happier! He loves puppyworks and so do we. The staff are all very attentive and help reinforce positive behavior while still allowing the puppy’s to interact and socialize. Prices feel very reasonable as well. If we get another puppy we’ll surely be back!

My pup really needed this socialization, he was kind of shy. The female assistant from Tacoma was so helpful, trying to ease my boy into the group.❤

Great place to socialize your pup. We had a great experience during our first visit. The staff were attentive and the place was clean. Our Goldendoodle had a solid 30 minutes of supervised playtime. We wished we had brought our Goldendoodle sooner!

Friendly staff - they do a great job of controlling the puppies environment and know what they're doing. First session is free, and sign ups super easy! I literally signed up 15min before.

We're definitely going back. Our puppy had an excellent time, got to expend a ton of energy, and gain confidence meeting new dogs. Probably the best puppy socialization experience I've had across all my dogs

Really helpful and such a great experience for me and my new puppy. She was shy and timid, but through repeated visits, the staff really helped my new baby come out of her shell and gain loads of confidence. More than that the staff, especially Sandy have gone above and beyond following up with trianing tips and advice. Continuing my dogs growth well after she aged out of the playtime. The online classes as well as advice and techniques from Sandy have helped shaped my puppy into a wonderful dog

Love this place! Glad my little one can get socialized before 16 weeks! Also they supervise play to keep it nice and teach puppers to play in a kind way. It took about3-4 times and my little one really started to come out of her shell.

I’ve taken my puppy to Seattle Puppyworks for about a month, and I wish I had known about it sooner! The trainers are super knowledgeable & friendly, and the visits have made a tremendous difference in my dog’s socialization. She’s much more confident and playful now than she was when we started going. Scheduling is a breeze too!

We took our pup here a few times a week from when we got him at 8 weeks old to when he "graduated" at 20 weeks old. The staff are all awesome, helpful, and knowledgeable and are always quick to clean up any 'accidents'. We also went through their 'Sound Puppy Class' with Skye Farr and it was informative and fun! It really set us up for success and gave us a solid training foundation to build off of. Our puppy had an amazing time here and the only downside is that he got too old to keep going. ????

Needed to come here for my new puppy. They’re super nice to new customers, they’re really proactive with puppies and give you tips during puppy play. They clean accidents quickly and make sure puppies have a good time. Definitely recommend, I go twice a week

I’ve been attending since my pup was 11 weeks old and as of today she has graduated at 18 weeks! We attended the 5 week intro puppy class (and graduated) and puppy play sessions most mornings over the last month and a half! It’s super convenient because they are right off of a bus line, so it’s a great training opportunity for busses and it’s it’s not too demanding on a puppy’s limited energy. They also have responsible cleaning and social distancing procedures so I felt comfortable attending daily. I cannot say enough good about the staff and the business - only thank you! Pickle is my first dog, so this resource has been invaluable for both her and my education.

Our puppy went from being scared when he was sniffed to actively playing with other active puppies. I wish we went there more ofter before he turned 18 weeks old.

Our puppy loves coming to play, he didn’t have a way to meet and learn play with other dogs of his age before we came here. He is way more confident now and we can see the difference when he meets other bigger dogs on the sidewalk. He got that confidence from repeated structured play and it’s great.

Highly recommend this place if you have a new puppy. Although it's pricey, it's been well worth it. We went to puppy socialization (my Shiba Thor has been coming here since he is 12-13 wks) and took the sound puppy class. Needless to say, if not for you do it for your puppy! I know my Shiba loves it here because he is always sprinting to the door, follows the trainers around, and loves playing with the other dogs. In the puppy works environment, I always feel confident that the trainers will make sure everyone is playing appropriately too and is safe. My boy is almost graduated and he feels comfortable with playing with dogs of all sizes, loves saying hi to everyone, and l am confident in his ability to listen to me & learn more stuff after puppy works! In addition, if your dog has a behavioral issue and they notice it they will let you know. Take their advice and listen as they're very knowledgeable and want to help you and your pup. Thanks to all the trainers at puppy works and Skye (our teacher of sound puppy class).

This I place is great and offers your puppy the chance for structured socialization. Our dog goes 3 days/week for at least an hour each visit.

Super fun place, I would recommend it to others. A little dark. Also not all employees wear safe masks.

My pup has had the BEST time with the puppies here. As a new owner to a puppy, I also really appreciate how much the employees at Puppy works stay engaged with the dogs while also explaining what and why they do what they do while the dogs interact.
