Socialisation is crucial for your dog, make sure you are exposing them to different stimuli, taking care not to overwhelm them.

Homework - Getting Ready for Week 2

For the rest of your puppy course (weeks 2-6) please bring:

  • Your puppy!
  • Bed/blanket
  • Food Bowl
  • Brush
  • Toy
  • Plenty of small tasty treats (chicken, ham, liver, cheese, sausage etc.)

You may not need all of these things every week but it is best if you ensure you have them incase.  Also remember not to feed your puppy their last meal before class on the day of class (e.g. if your class is at 6.00pm, don't feed your puppy tea)
