WHY PUPPY SCHOOL


If you start training from the start you will set the right foundations for your puppy for the future. At so help me dog we aim to give you the skills and knowledge to bring up a well balanced and calm pup. Approximately around 4 - 16 weeks of age, your puppy is learning and absorbing so much information about the world that anything it does learn in that time is permanent, and can stay with them for life. This is formally known as the critical socialisation period and it is why a lot of puppy schools take enrolments during that age bracket. 

Everything that your puppy experiences in that time period through learning and development can impact and shape their behaviour into adulthood. It’s important to provide them with plenty of opportunities for positive and successful interactions and exposure to different environments, sights, sounds, surfaces, people, dogs, animals, objects etc. A puppy that has been positively exposed to the above will be a dog that is well adjusted, adaptable to change, and be able to confidently walk through life with you. We aim to teach and show owners how to correctly introduce your puppy to all different kinds of scenarios and experiances.
