Puppies have a critical period to be introduced to everything they need to know about life
Due to the Government’s new guidelines we can now offer private socialisation sessions.
These sessions take place outdoors in a private, secure field and allow your puppy to explore new environments, items and equipment each session, as well as interact with a new person (your instructor) and a well mannered, well socialised adult dog. We will also introduce some basic obedience and recall games for your puppy.
All items and equipment will be cleaned properly after each use, and social distancing will be maintained at all times. Entry and exit of the site will be closely controlled to keep surfaces clean, and different places of the site will be rested between sessions to ensure no cross contamination.
These sessions are £15 each and are half an hour long. Please feel free to contact me, or to book online at https://oceanbluedogsbooking.as.me/
Our usual group puppy course is an hour long on Sunday evenings and runs for six consecutive weeks.
The course is £60 for the full six weeks and includes video tutorials, plenty of handouts and reading material and extra help and support on top of the physical sessions themselves.
The course includes name recognition and recall; sits, downs and stays; impulse control and leaving; playing and dropping; loose lead walking and heelwork, and lots more.
The sessions are run in a positive, progressive and play based manner to help your pup learn to love training.
Please get in contact for a syllabus and to ask any questions!
Purchase a set of comprehensive PDFs to help with everything your puppy will need you to know from the moment you bring them home.
The PDFs include seperation anxiety, toilet training, alone training, play, critical development periods, socialisation checklists and much more.
Also included is access to a set of 10 video tutorials.
Cost is £30, with a deduction from the cost of the in-person puppy training course if you choose to attend those.
Critical Socialisation Period
Puppies have a critical socialisation period between 6 and 16 weeks in which they can discover new things without fear. The more new sights, sounds, smells and situations they are presented with at this age the fewer reasons they will have to be reactive in later life.
Socialisation isn’t just about meeting new dogs, though interactions with well behaved, social and confident dogs is important. Socialisation also means meeting potentially scary things such as sheep cows, skateboards, people wearing hats and carrying umbrellas, workmen in high vis, children, fireworks, etc.
Setting Your Puppy Up For Life
Puppy owners have an incredible responsibility during this time and we can provide a checklist with the help and support to achieve it, for as much of your puppy’s socialisation needs as possible.
As puppies aren’t fully vaccinated until towards the end of this period, it is important that precautions are taken for the safety of your puppy. However, there is still an overwhelming need to socialise your puppy properly so it is important to get out and about. We can help you with these safety precautions.

We offer group puppy training classes, in-home private puppy training sessions, toilet training help, socialisation sessions and lots of reading material to help you.
