Calling all dog breeders!

Learn how to start socialising your puppies using science, fact, and tried and tested methods from the very start.

The protocols taught in our puppy socialisation course will guide you to easily help your puppies to be robust and ready for the real world. With just 5 minutes a day dedicated to socialisation, you can give them the best chance to live an amazing life with their families. From fear periods to husbandry, to car travel, you’ll have well-rounded little pup stars who are ready for the world!
