Socialisation can start from the moment your puppy is born and it's really great to introduce them gently to new experiences as soon as possible. Don’t wait until they are already 16 weeks! It's more than just playing with other dogs and people - socialisation includes noises, textures, strange objects and much more.
This should be done very carefully, gently and kindly to make sure that our puppies aren’t frightened by these new experiences. But not all of socialisation is about teaching our puppies to interact with/notice things — some things we introduce in a way which makes those things blur into the background and just be ignored.
Explore and Play Sessions
These sessions offer a valuable opportunity for the puppies to meet other dogs and people, as well as investigating new surfaces, feelings, sounds and experiences. This is held in a safe and secure environment, allowing them to build confidence and focus in a really fun way.
These are held in Coningsby and are arranged at times that suit owners whose pups are well matched. Each explore and play session lasts between 25 and 30 minutes and costs £10 per puppy.
Please contact us if you would like to join with your puppy!

Our Monday Puppy Training Classes run at 6:00pm and at North Kyme Village Hall. These classes are great for puppies up to 20 weeks (under 5 months on the first class of the course). Each week an in depth recap sheet breaks down what we have covered, the benefits of these exercises, and how to build upon them during the week ahead.
