Puppy Socialisation

Help your new puppy get used to different places, sounds, people, experiences and environments to help them feel safe and happy entering into adulthood


Puppies that are not socialised in a safe way, or at all, can develop behavioural issues as they get older, so it is such an important part of their learning and development

Let's help your pup discover and navigate this big world in a positive way

What's included in puppy socialisation?

  1. Work & play with your puppy at our dedicated Training & Behaviour Centre, allowing them to get used to the environment (this can be a great advantage when progressing puppies onto our Puppy Training course) 2 trainers in the class to provide lots of individual support.

  2. Exploring puppy life skills, such as settling in different environments, how to meet and greet people, approaching new items, how to greet other dogs, as well as learning to ignore other dogs, focusing on their owners, confidence building, as well as new noises, objects, smells and experiences


  3. ​Exploring activities to help with car travel, vets visits, grooming visits and husbandry tasks

  4. Puppies are matched in terms of personality and play style and, where appropriate, allowed to socialise under supervision of the trainers


  5. Free membership to our exclusive Facebook community group for ongoing advice and support 

  6. PLUS a BONUS 10% OFF Puppy Training Course upon signing up!
