One of the most important stages in a puppy’s life – that can very profoundly affect the future character of a dog – is the socialisation period. This very sensitive period takes place between 3 weeks and four months of age and is the period in a puppy’s life in which it quickly acquires many social, emotional and cognitive skills. Correct socialisation during this period substantially increases the probability that a dog will go on to have a balanced, stable and predictable character. On the contrary, dogs that fail to socialise properly during this period are at risk of developing a range of behavioural problems such as aggression. This early stage in a puppy’s life is also the time in which rules and boundaries should be established and when the beginning of a strong dog/owner bond is created.
The courses at Escuela Infantíl Can is Cool are designed to meet the needs of both the puppy at this important stage of its life and the new puppy owner, who equally has much to learn about his or her new canine friend.
