Puppies usually accept novel things and situations openly whilst they are young - usually up to about 16 weeks. After this time, they will still accustom themselves to new things, but not as openly.
Puppies who do not have adequate socialisation during this period may grow into fearful, anxious dogs. Puppy preschool, run by a qualified and experienced trainer offers you and your puppy:
It is safe to take the puppies to pre-school provided they have had their first immunisation at least 7 days before they attend their first class.
