Socialisation and obedience



Socialisation means exposing young dogs to other people, dogs and situations they will be expected to encounter in life. Socialisation classes are a good start toward the healthy development of your dog.

Classes are suitable for pups under 16 weeks and provide:

  • fun
  • education
  • information
  • interaction with other people and puppies.


Obedience training teaches your dog to respond reliably to commands and can start from six months.
