IF YOUR PUP IS ALREADY SHOWING AGGRESSION THIS COURSE IS NOT SUITABLE.
Do you have a puppy under the age of 7 months and worry about letting your pup play? Don’t know if the play is play or aggression? Do you have a shy or timid pup? Some people shy away from letting the pup play because they are not sure and this can lead to longer term problems and possibly aggression. Some people let their pup play, when in fact, they should interrupt, which can also lead to inter dog aggression later on. If you’re not sure, this three week outdoor class will be perfect for you. We will guide you how to read your puppy and to understand what is play and what is not. You will learn when to allow play to continue, and when you should interrupt. You will be learning a great deal about the many subtle communication signals that dogs show and how to interpret them.
As well as enabling supervised social play, we also teach
Loose lead walking
