There is a choice of puppy training & socialisation courses to suit different ages:-
“Baby” puppy training for ages between 8 to around 14-16 weeks, and the “Older” puppy training for ages from 14 to 22 weeks.
A course usually starts every 2 weeks with a maximum of 6 dogs in each indoor class.
Pups learn extremely quickly. The early weeks are a vital learning period for good communication and life skills, and to ensure confident interactions with other dogs, so finding sound, experienced, professional training is really important. Sadly, there is no regulation for dog trainers, and we see pups coming to our “older” pup course who have been stressed by going to inexperienced trainers in their early weeks.
Best to start as soon as you can; for most breeds 8 weeks is the best time to start to gently acclimatize pup to the environment. Certainly don’t delay much beyond 10 weeks…… the “baby” course is designed for puppies between 8 to 14 weeks at start.
Pups can start indoor classes before their second inoculation.
