Puppies develop and solidify their impression of the world in their first 24 weeks of life; the ‘critical socialization window’. What they experience in this period determines how adaptable, calm and confident they’ll be as adults. This class will help you to socialize your puppy to people, dogs, sights and sounds in a safe and positive environment. Learn how to encourage appropriate behaviour and set boundaries. Learn the most important skills a dog needs, such as bite inhibition, recall, house training, appropriate dog-dog skills and more. Build a strong relationship with your puppy based on mutual trust and respect!
