After School Programs

Frolic After School offers something for everyone. From our Puppy Raiser Program to our Ambassadorship, your child can be learn all about socializing a future working dog, or learn all about responsible and humane care for animals, through their love for dogs!

Puppy Raiser

Your child can be a part of a special puppy’s journey. In conjunction with the Guide Dog Foundation and America’s Vet Dogs, dog-loving children will prepare a puppy to become a service or guide dog and have the unique opportunity to have a lifelong friendship with someone who relies on a service animal to live their life.

Private Sessions and Open Play

Overcoming Fear

(12 private sessions)

Our Overcoming Fear of Dogs sessions are for anyone who may be nervous about interacting with dogs. It is important for children and adults to learn how to have safe interactions with dogs, as they will encounter them often in a busy city like New York. We start the course without a dog present, and we go at the client’s pace. Learning about dog body language and having controlled interactions with the Frolic dogs go hand-in-hand to ease preconceived anxieties about dogs.

Available for all ages
