Puppy Socialisation


eCPD Tutorial – unlimited lifetime access!



Course Summary

This 60 minute eCPD tutorial provides an introduction to socialisation in puppies.  Appropriate socialisation is absolutely crucial as a basis for preventing many behaviour problems and advice about this must form part of every puppy owner’s education by the veterinary surgery.  This tutorial explains what socialisation is, why the timing of this process is so important and how to apply this information to living in the real world.  It also discusses the importance of balancing the risks of disease with the risks of restricting puppies’ experiences whilst waiting for vaccine schedules to complete.
