Puppy Classes

Why is it important to bring your pup to puppy classes?

The critical socialisation period for puppies is between 8 and 20 weeks of age. During this time it is important to indroduce your puppy to lots of safe, positive environments and situations. Puppy classes provide a safe and controlled environment for you to socialise your puppy and also provide information and skills to help your puppy develop into a well-balanced, friendly and happy adult dog.

What does puppy class cover?

  • Socialisation
