Yappy Hour The Peninsula at Williams Island

Rocco’s Pack staff attended the first “Yappy Hour” on April 13 at The Peninsula, where staff met with residents and their pooches worked on obedience and agility skills. Dogs large and small enjoyed a warm evening on the lawn with Frisbees and treats while socializing with other pups. Thank you to The Peninsula for welcoming Rocco’s Pack to this fun event, we look forward to attending again in the future.
