Now that you have your puppy…
…you only have a small window to ensure it has the best start in life.
The most important time of your dog’s life is now that it is a puppy. The right steps taken at this time will have a profound and everlasting effect on your puppy. The more new and enjoyable experiences your puppy has, the more likely it will be to mature into a well-adjusted dog. As puppies get older, they become more cautious and find it more difficult to get accustomed to new experiences. Puppies grow fast, so you need to get started straight away.
Why do I need to train my puppy?
Training is a way of letting puppies know what is required of them, so that they can live happily according to our rules and customs. It ensures you have control of your puppy at all times, particularly in potentially dangerous situations.It teaches your puppy to listen to you and ignore distractions. It is a means of building a positive relationship with your puppy.
Why do I need to socialise my puppy?
By ensuring that your puppy has many new and happy experiences in his young life, you will be equipping your puppy to enjoy the presence and actions of all people; including men, strangers and children. It will also teach your puppy to enjoy being examined, restrained, hugged, and handled by people like children, veterinarians, visitors and groomers. It will teach your puppy to be confident, friendly and well-behaved with other dogs.
