Is your puppy between 8-16 weeks of age?
As professional dog trainers, our Puppy Preschool aims to provide you with all the essential science & research based behaviour and training information required when bringing a new puppy into your family.
The main focus of our Puppy Preschool course is socialisation, confidence building, dealing with current puppy problem behaviours, and PREVENTION of potential behaviour problems.
Why is it so important to start Puppy Training so early? Developmentally, between the age of 8-16 weeks of age, your puppy is in its CRITICAL SOCIALISATION PERIOD. This means your puppy needs to have positive experiences in the presence of a wide variety of sounds, surfaces, objects, people and other dogs. Anything that your puppy will likely be exposed to as an adult dog, should be introduced between 8-16 weeks of age.
The BIGGEST MISTAKE that new puppy owners make in regards to their puppies long term behaviour development, is to keep their puppy isolated until they have finished their vaccinations. While it is important to be careful in regards to Parvovirus, you can still safely get your pup out and about. For example, you can carry them in your arms while walking down a busy street, attend a well run Puppy Preschool course that provides socialisation and confidence building activities, or visit family & friends with gentle & friendly vaccinated dogs.
