PUPPY SOCIALISATION CLASSES (for puppies under 16 weeks old at the start of the course)
EPSOM - Tuesday 13th November '18 - 7.30pm - spaces available
CARSHALTON - Monday 7th January '19 - 7.30pm - spaces available

It is NEVER to early to start training and socialising your puppy. Until vaccinated, your puppy can be trained in your home, and in your arms when you are out and about in the big wide world. Puppies learn incredibly quickly and these classes are designed to allow them to build confidence and social skills with adults, children and other puppies in a controlled environment as well as learning all the basics of training. Puppyhood is the most important stage of your dog’s life, so if you are lucky enough to have your dog from a puppy, investing your time at this stage of their life is invaluable. There is no turning the clock back! Puppies should be 16 weeks old or less to join the Puppy Socialisation Play School – however the earlier the better!


Planning ahead and booking a place on the course before you bring him or her home will mean that you can start your puppies training off as soon as your vet allows after vaccination. Additionally, once you have booked onto the course, we will send you some pre-class training and socialisation information so you can get started in the right direction before you even arrive! Class numbers are restricted but we encourage families to come along - so children of school age and above are welcome! Our puppy classes are designed to achieve the following:
  • To teach your puppy bite inhibition (the most important thing you can ever teach your dog)
  • To socialise your puppy to different people (particularly children)
  • To socialise your puppy to other puppies
  • To have your puppy accept and enjoy being handled by different people, particularly children and veterinarians
  • To teach basic exercises including: Coming when called, Sit/Down/Stand, Walking on a loose leading, Off/Leave it, Stop play biting, Greet people without jumping, ...and to have FUN

    Puppies will be allowed to play and socialise with the other puppies in class in a safe, monitored and controlled environment ensuring that your puppy learns the correct play and social skills, does not get scared, and does not learn to be a play bully.
