Socialisation is the process of exposing dogs to new environments and situations. While it is best to start Socialisation from puppyhood this should be an ongoing process throughout the dog's life

Socialisation is important in helping your dog to feel more comfortable when encountering new things, animals, people and experiences so they are not anxious when confronted with change.

Socialised dogs are typically happier, friendlier, more predictable and able to handle stress better. Poorly socialised dogs may become fearful, shy, anxious, or worse overly aggressive because they lack the skills to cope with new situations.

Weekly obedience classes will enable you and your dog to socialise in a fun environment with other equally minded owners and their dogs.
