The most critical time to socialise a puppy is during the first four months of life. During this narrow window, the puppy’s brain is most inclined to accept new experiences. What your pup encounters at this life-stage will shape its character, temperament and behaviour for the rest of its life.

If your puppy isn’t socialised during the first four months, it can increase the risk of behaviour problems such as fear, avoidance and aggression later in its life. These problems can be excruciatingly difficult to fix in an older animal.

Puppy Playschool aims to provide lots of positive socialisation experiences to shape happy and confident puppies. We will also teach puppy parents the many ways to teach polite puppy manners. Puppies will learn basic obedience cues through play. Puppy parents will also learn how to manage common puppy issues like play nipping, jumping and toilet training.

Puppy Playschool graduates can join our Doggy Daycare to continue the socialisation and positive learning experiences with us.
