Why Is Puppy School So Important?

​Common behavioural problems can be prevented if your puppy is appropriately socialised during what's known as their ‘critical’ or ‘sensitive’ phase of development (up to 16 weeks of age and less for working breeds). This gives us a small window of opportunity that will have a huge impact on the rest of their lives.

Puppy School Class enables us to socialise and train our puppies safely during this time when they may not have finished their vaccinations and aren't allowed out in the big wide world just yet.

​Socialisation refers to the process of learning calmness and confidence​ in the environment to give them the ability to cope later in life. 

It's important to note that socialisation isn't simply exposure. Negative experiences during this critical period, can have a lasting impact on behaviour that develops into adulthood. I would advise you to keep your puppy away from busy dog parks.

  • Toilet training & crate training
