Consisting of half an hour of socialisation. A chance for your puppy to socialise and learn life lessons with other puppies. Learning how to play with other puppies and understanding their behaviour. The puppies will be introduced to some adult dogs during some of the socialisation sessions.


It is crucial to socialise your puppy well to ensure a well balanced adult dog. The critical period for a puppy is very short; it is crucial to fill this time with as much positive association as possible.


This socialisation is suitable for all puppies under 26 weeks. It is recommended that you come to as many puppy socialisation sessions as possible before your puppy reaches 26 weeks.


These sessions are usually on lead meetings with puppies of different sizes and breeds.


  • Please bring treats and poo bags along with you.


If your puppy shows any sign of illness or has kennel cough, please contact Helen and do not attend classes or puppy socialisation. Please ensure you wait at least five days after a kennel cough vaccine before attending puppy class or socialisation.
