Right Start Programme

Give your new puppy the right start and prevent unwanted behaviours from developing

Puppy playing

Many behavioural problems have their origin in the early months of life when socialisation is critical for the development of a well-balanced adult dog. Getting things right from the start will save a great deal of trouble and anxiety later on.

The adolescent stage from 6 months, when hormones are racing and independence is growing, can challenge the patience of a saint!  It's no coincidence that one in five puppies ends up rehomed or in a rescue centre before the age of two. The adolescent stage can be disheartening and give new owners feelings of frustration and failure. However, it will pass more easily if you know what to expect and how to prevent your youngster 'going off the rails'. With my help and your dedication and consistency, we'll ensure that a well-mannered mature dog comes out the other side.

My Right Start Programme will help you with early socialisation and the adolescent period, and includes:

  • An initial consultation (usually 1 - 1.5 hours) for you and your new puppy in your own home to get your new pup off to the best possible start.

  • A second, follow-up consultation by telephone.

I'll make sure you have information packs with practical advice, and you won't be alone: I'm just a telephone call away.
