Puppy socialization classes provide more than just exposure to other dogs and humans. Puppy socialization classes include SOME playtime (but not much), practice with different people/noises/movement/surfaces, work on handling (practice vet exams), and talk about safely teaching your puppy that new things are fun.

Bad puppy socialization classes do more harm than good by teaching puppies that everything is either play or obedience - not very fun, not very practical. A good class teaches your puppy to settle, to meet strangers, to be calm on balance beams and at the vet's, and to chill out around a vacuum.
