Socialising puppies is a really important and enjoyable aspect of Happy Pets Services range of services.

I only use “positive reinforcement” as recommended by The Dogs Trust and ADBT (Association for Dog Behaviour & Training). Your pup learns the commands you need them to know and becomes relaxed and confident around other dogs. 

I do puppy home visits. I teach puppies to walk nicely on a lead, one to one with me and to be confident and relaxed around other dogs by being relaxed, calm, friendly and amenable which enables puppy to feel confident about each encounter.

When puppy has had his/her boosters Happy Pets socialises them using a series of one to one introductions to friendly dogs in a natural setting, which I call “Paws-itive interactions”.

This is a great way to ensure your pup develops a confident, positive, and relaxed attitude towards other dogs. I’ve worked this approach with puppies of many breeds including Border Terriers, several West Highland Terriers, Mini Schnauzer, several Cocker Spaniels, Shih-Tzu, Cairn Terrier, Labradors, Jack Russell Terrier, KIng Charles Cavalier Spaniel, multiple Cockapoos, Patterdale Terrier and more. They’ve all developed a great friendly attitude to other dogs and people.
