Who Should Attend?

The ideal age for puppies starting classes is 6-16 weeks. Pups are also of a similar behavioural development at this time. Puppies 6-16 weeks of age are in the critical period for socialisation in which a small amount of experience can lead to significant long lasting effects on behaviour. (Please see 2021 COVID update listed above as to who can attend).

What do you need to bring?
