What's The Best Way To Raise A Puppy And Why?

Written by a qualified Veterinarian and an Accredited Behaviourist this extensive Diploma course covers topics like choosing the right puppy, detailed veterinary care, successful socialisation and careful kind puppy coaching. We consider puppy self-esteem, self-awareness, and all the early learning that a puppy needs, to grow into a healthy and confident older dog.
We also explore genetic factors, social and physical development in detail. The course is designed to raise awareness and increase knowledge about why every single puppy should be carefully bred, carefully socialised and why a puppy is certainly not a blank canvas when he arrives home at eight weeks old.
