Puppy Socialisation

The first 3 months of the puppy’s life is very important for their development. Much is learned from the puppy’s mother from birth up to the time they become independent which can be from 8 weeks onwards but its best to leave the puppy with its mother until it is 12 weeks old.

Socialisation of the puppy in the early months is crucial and ensures they develop good behaviour around other dogs, with people and in different situations. A well socialised puppy creates a behaved, relaxed and safer dog who is comfortable in a wide variety of situations and is less likely to use aggression when moments of fear arise.

Puppies need to be exposed as young as possible to new sights, sounds, smells, textures and people in order to be comfortable in all situations.

At Country Tails we welcome all puppies who have been fully vaccinated with both primary and secondary vaccines and a kennel cough vaccine. For full details click here

All our puppy visitors get to socialise and play with others of similar age and size with lots of rest periods in between. They are exposed to as much variation as possible all of which is delivered in a slow and controlled manner, taking into account each puppy’s limits. All interactions are rewarded with plenty of treats and praise.
