Puppy Confidence & Socialisation

There are many key things to include in your Puppy's first few weeks with you. It's not something to overlook or assume you can catch up on later in your puppy's development.

Make Puppy Confidence & Socialisation Skills A Priority

Socialisation is a crucial part of your puppy's development, teaching them how to interact socially with other living creatures and, in turn, helping them to develop into well adjusted dogs. 

Studies have shown that dogs which miss out on socialisation and habituation (teaching puppy to ignore environmental stimuli) from 5-12 weeks of age never fully regain social confidence and are always trying to adjust to living in a domestic environment.

My Happy Dog offers plenty of opportunities for your puppy to meet other puppies within the Puppy Parenting School, it's been created by My Happy Dog in a scientifically proven way to gain confidence and offer socialisation opportunities ensure the interactions are safe, manageable and leave your puppy with a positive impact.

For older puppies & dogs there are sessions called Building Bonds available to help your dog learn to be around others and have fun.

Dog Training Classes

Seth was 3 when I first took the plunge and went to My Happy Dog Training & Behaviour and OMG what a fabulous experience! None of the regimented training I had experienced at other clubs, which to be honest put me off training. Charlotte has extensive knowledge about all things dog and exudes a passion for ensuring positive reward based training which totally shines through when attending a class. All sessions are small (ensuring plenty of quality time), fun packed and rewarding (for both dog and owner).
