The first 17 weeks of your puppies life have been scientifically proven to be the most important time of a dogs life. During this period research shows puppies that have been well socialised, playing with other puppies of the same age and experienced different life events, textures, noises etc. go on to be well rounded, friendly and well socialised dogs.
In our puppy school, we cover all of the areas needed to fulfil a puppies experiences within the first 20 weeks of its life. For example we cover: bite inhibit; resources guarding; jumping up; body desensitising; heel work; recall; stranger danger; first aid; open access code etc.
We have an interactive play area for our puppies and during the class, puppies of similar sizes will play together in this area. We have toys of different textures, interactive games and a dressing up box of different things dogs are prone to being scared of.
Due to the different weeks of age a puppy arrives at the puppy school, SDBC has a specialised kindergarten class so you can be assured that your puppies confidence will grow at its own pace by playing with like minded puppies. Once ready, they can move to the junior school next door at the correct time for both pup and owner.
