Puppy Start Right Preschool
Puppy Start Right Preschool is a fun but important course that we offer to start young puppies off on the right ‘paw’ for ages 7-14 weeks of age. Included in this course is information on how to manage your puppy when they go through common puppy stages and phases, such as toilet training, puppy nipping and mouthing, digging, chewing and the list goes on…..
From about 5-16 weeks old a puppy goes through the developmental phase typically called the ‘socialisation period’. This is a finite period when puppies are generally very receptive to experiencing new things in their environment – sounds, other animals, different people, new terrains and textures, etc. From approximately 12 weeks this developmental phase starts to close and puppies are no longer as receptive to new experiences. This is why we run our Puppy Start Right Preschool course for young pups.
Taking your puppy to Puppy Start Right Preschool is equivalent the dog training equivalent of vaccinating your pup against diseases – only in this case you’re vaccinating your pup against behavioural issues.
