Puppies require socialisation with dogs in their own age group and we all know that a well-socialised puppy matures into a confident and happy dog. Alongside this they also need training so they learn to behave nicely around people and dogs in all situations. Our Puppy Socialisation course encompasses both of these important aspects.
Socialisation should never mean simply running around playing with other dogs, it is about learning to behave well in any social environment. Simple tasks like meeting and greeting other dogs and people in a calm manner are what make a well-socialised puppy.
This is why, at WitsEnd, we do a range of on-lead training on our puppy course, leaving time at the end to have a nice off lead play. Recall exercises are regularly taken throughout the play session so the puppies learn to respond to their owners at this stage and to not simply ignore them because they are having such a good time!
On some courses we are able to play all puppies together, and some we have to split up the play depending on confidence, play style, and size.
Our style of puppy training brings out your dog's full potential, encouraging him to think and learn, and then go on learning! But we also aim to teach you, the owner, (and your family if they wish to attend) how to train your puppy and are here to answer any of the many questions you may have.
