#1 Rated dog socialisation course
These steps are designed for the pupsters in mind usually ranging in age from 8 weeks to 4 months before they get to the adolescent phase. If your dog is 5 months or older and you are experiencing barking, lunging and pulling when they see a dog on walks refer to the barking at dogs course, we recommend that you book a call with one of our trainers.
Socialisation in this context simply means that we want to provide your puppy with quality positive experiences and encounters with other dogs so that they build confidence around them and we minimise any scary surprises with other dogs.
Helping your puppy become confident in the early stages is the most important thing you will do at this stage – training behaviours such as sit and down will come in their own time. It is way more important to focus on how your puppy feels rather than what your puppy is able to do at this moment.
