Puppy/Dog Playgroup in Fribourg


We live in Fribourg area and have a lovely 4 month old Aussie puppy. We understand the importance of puppy socialisation so would love to find him other puppies/dogs to play with occasionally.

Is there any puppy playgroups in the area that we could join or anyone interested in meeting up from time to time?

Re: Puppy/Dog Playgroup in Fribourg

Typically puppy classes are for pups 8-16 weeks, Junghund from 4-9 months.

At four months your pup is right on the border between puppy play group or puppy development classes and the next step, Junghund classes. So once you find a trainer you think is a good fit, discuss with him/her which is best for your little one.

I'm afraid I don't know anyone in Fribourg, so don't have any personal experience - but until someone from your area comes along, as a start here is the website of the Société Canine Fribourg, who run both puppy and Junghund classes:


(The Société Canine Fribourg is the SKG section.)

A quick google of 'cours chiots' or 'Welpenspielgruppe, Welpenspielstunde' or 'Welpenförderung, Welpenprägung' + Fribourg throws up several possibilities, but as I don't know any of these personally I won't link them.


I always recommend taking a more formal puppy development class in addition to the socialization program you are doing on your own. This is such a critical developmental phase that IME it really helps to attend a well-run course.


Hope you find a group that's a good fit for you and your pup!
