Your pup my have permanent fear and anxiety if early socialisation isn’t done well.
Puppies easily learn confidence when encountering new things – before the critical age of around 16 weeks. Delayed socialisation learning can result in deep fear and anxiety – for the rest of your pup’s life. Starting to socialise a pup later can be an exercise in fixing problems, rather than preventing them. Puppy socialisation can be done safely, despite your pup not being fully vaccinated yet.
How can you socialise your pup early? What do you need to do for socialisation? Whether or not you attend group puppy classes early (8 – 12 weeks), you need to get socialisation RIGHT!
This program is only for pups still inside that critical window, between 8 and 14 weeks old. This gives you time to do the socialisation work that you need. This program includes general puppy training information, an initial online session, a visit to the trainers’ house and a follow-up using live video.
Your Puppy Socialisation Jump-Start includes:
- Basic puppy training & care e-book;
- Initial online information session;
- one-on-one session (Swan View) to learn how to introduce your pup to new things;
- socialisation plan for you to follow – tailored to your pup’s needs;
- follow-up video call with extra guidance.
Please note, this is NOT a “good behaviour” type training program. If you’ve got “naughty puppy” issues, contact us for information on obedience training options (including the Puppy Courses).
Good socialisation prior to your final vaccination is vital to your pup becoming a well adjusted adult dog.
Puppy Socialisation Jump-Start requires online access and a visit to Swan View, Western Australia.
