Puppy & Special Needs Care
Have you got a new puppy who needs some extra attention in their early months to help reinforce your training?
The first 14 weeks of your puppy's life are what is known as the "Socialization Period". This is the time when you need to really mix your puppy with as many new people, things and situations as possible; strollers, bicycles, vacuum cleaners, men in hats, umbrellas and everything else! Learning at this age is permanent so this is a perfect time to start training. Also, this is the ideal time to introduce the puppy to things that will play an important part in his life. Introduce the puppy to different people, places, animals, and sounds in a positive, non-threatening way.
Puppies require regular care during the working day. We can provide companionship, care and potty breaks for your puppy, including house and/or garden play and/or a short walk near your house. For puppies this early routine can evolve into a full walk as they get older and stronger, and this will help enormously with the socialization process.
We also understand the requirements of special needs dogs and their caretakers, and can help you care for them. Thousands of you are caring for an elderly, injured, or disabled pet with special needs. Is your dog injured, or recovering from surgery? Does your dog have cancer, a terminal illness, arthritis, paralysis, or other health problems? We welcome dogs with special needs and will do all we can to help you with them - just contact us to discuss their care.
