First steps for your new family member
I strongly believe that if there is one thing that could most improve quality of life for dogs living in our society, it is correct early socialisation, during the critical puppy developmental phases.
A large majority of behavioural problems can be avoidable through sound socialisation practices and an understanding of our puppy's vulnerabilities and limitations. From the moment you bring your new family member home, every day is an opportunity to help them reach their full potential!
The generally acknowledged critical or sensitive developmental period during a puppy’s life for socialisation is between three and 12 weeks of age. When the puppy leaves the mother and litter, he has learnt much about being a dog. Now he needs to learn to bond and relate to people as his secondary social attachment. We share our a sound knowledge and understanding of the development of the puppy from birth, through adolescence, to adulthood.
We aim to greatly improve the quality of life
and longevity of life of your puppy.
