Puppies are born not knowing how to behave in human society.
Humans are born not knowing how to behave towards their dogs. A clash of misunderstandings occur. Unpleasantries like punishment from the owner, or biting from the dog happen !!!
Both owner and dog need to be taught acceptable behaviour towards each other.
The good news is the younger the puppy, the quicker they learn.
As for humans, "you can teach an old dog/human new tricks"!
Early training will avoid bad habits from forming in the future.
The sooner you start, the easier it will be for you and your pup. The training is for YOU the owner while your puppy socialises with the other pups in the class.
How early can you start? Your puppy may only attend 10 days AFTER its second vaccination for the safety of your pup and the other pups in the class.
We highly recommend the following:
- 1st vaccination done at 6 weeks
- 2nd vaccination done 3-4 weeks thereafter.
Remember that you will be having a relationship for the next 10-15 years with your dog - why not start the journey understanding your companion from the beginning?
We currently do not run any puppy classes at our clinic. Please contact us for recommendations.
