Why Is Puppy School So Important?

​​​Socialisation refers to the process of learning calmness and confidence​ in their environment to increase your puppy's ability to cope later in life. 

A common misconception is that socialisation refers to playing with as many dogs as possible. This could actually be to your puppy's detriment. Both good and bad experiences can have a lasting impact. The hard part of socialisation is teaching them to be calm and able to focus on you while building positive associations to a range of sights, sounds, touch and everything else in the environment so that they can grow up to be confident dogs! This is what we aim to teach in class.

​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 - less for working breeds). This gives us a huge window of opportunity that will have a big impact on the rest of their lives.
