Give your pup a flying start to life!puppies group_1118

All animals at the start of their lives experience what is known as the ‘sensitive development period’.During this time, they encounter the world for the first time – and learn to accept what they find. In puppies, the sensitive period starts from birth and lasts until about 14 weeks of age. Anything a puppy experiences during that time will become part of its natural order of things. After that age, unfamiliar objects and experiences can cause a fearful response (sometimes extremely fearful) and could ultimately lead to aggression.

Puppy school offers you a unique opportunity to introduce your puppy to many additional sights, sounds and experiences in a controlled and responsible way. They are a fun and informative way to help you begin the socialisation process in a safe environment and allow your puppy to meet others while it is still very young. Good socialisation is the best way to ensure a friendly, well-adjusted puppy.
