Why join our Puppy Parenting Club? 

Having a puppy is much harder than I ever imagined; I worry that I’m not doing things right.”

From the first day home with your new puppy, they will need to learn key life skills. Having left their their mum and the breeder, it’s now over to you to help your puppy to learn and develop into a happy, confident, well-behaved dog.

The first year is the most important period in your puppy’s development. It’s also the time, without the right knowledge or support, when puppy problems can set in.

As a first time puppy parent, our Puppy Goals, Puppy Parenting Toolkits and Your New Puppy: the first 60 days online tutorial have been designed to guide you through this critical phase in your puppy’s development.

Raising a puppy is a huge responsibility – something that often takes new puppy parents by surprise. You might find yourself feeling overwhelmed and anxious about whether you are doing things right. This is normal – and we’re here to support you.
