Puppy School - Coming soon!

8 weeks to 6 months

Puppies go through a ‘critical socialisation period’ between 3 and 17 weeks of age. Your puppy’s experiences during this critical time of learning and development will influence and shape their behaviour and personalities well into adulthood. At Puppy School you will learn how to introduce your puppy to new environments, people and animals in a way that will build their confidence and set them up for a happy and social life.

Our aim is to teach you how your puppy learns and get you both off to a great start on your training journey together. There is also heaps of information about common puppy behaviours, issues and needs. At Fetching Behaviour you and your pup are going to learn to work as a great team together as well as having a lot of fun along the way!
