About this webinar

There is evidence that behavioural advice when given to puppy owners, results in fewer problem behaviours such as mouthing of people, inappropriate toileting, mounting and more importantly from a wider social perspective, aggressive behaviours towards unfamiliar dogs and people.

– Is it enough to just tell an owner to socialise’ their puppy?
– Can we deliver a better set of tools to accompany this?
– Who can intervene with other learning, and how?
 -What key advice needs to be given to prevent later behavioural problems?
– Specific training that assists with this puppy early learning, specifically with emotional learning.
 -Why this is important for any puppy?
– How this approach fits into the pet care community especially with owners, and as early as possible
 -Can we standardise practice advice, ideally in consultation with experienced trainers and behaviour professionals?
