How can my puppy start to learn to socialise if they can’t go outside?
If you’re keen to socialise your puppy with other animals – always a good idea – you can start doing so as soon as they’ve had their first vaccination, provided they socialise with other vaccinated dogs. Make sure you know the vaccination status of any dogs that come into your home and also their temperament, so you know if they will play nicely with your puppy.
If you’re planning on putting your puppy in kennels, dog shows or anywhere else they’re likely to mingle with lots of other dogs, they’ll need an extra vaccination that covers them for kennel cough.
Once your puppy has had all its jabs you can start taking them out in public and enrolling them in puppy training classes.
