Has your puppy had their behavioural vaccine?
Dogs who are properly socialised between 8 AND 15 weeks of age are far less likely to exhibit aggressive behaviour, fearful responses, and be surrendered as a result of behaviour problems.
"Exposure" is not socialisation. Socialisation is a process that creates predictable, positive associations with new and novel people, dogs, places, objects, textures, sounds, and smells.
You've brought home your bundle of furry joy and it’s hard not to notice the razor-like puppy teeth and the puddles everywhere. The sleep deprivation is teaching you about a whole new level of exhaustion and you’re worried you’re doing everything wrong.
You’re starting to feel that typical overwhelm that all puppy-guardians feel in the early days. Everybody out there is “an expert”, and you’re getting information from all angles and most of it is conflicting. It’s hard to know what’s right and what’s wrong with so much advice on Google, from the breeder, the vet, your friends, people at the park, and your family, too.
Wouldn’t it be easier to have a team of professionals guide you through this process, start to finish with consistent information that gives you peace of mind, effective strategies, and tangible success?
That's where we come in.
We are a team of Certified Professional Dog Trainers who have not only raised our own puppies, but who train guardians like you, every day. We have been running Toronto's best Early Puppy Socialisation classes since 2008 and your trusted Veterinarian has probably already recommended us to you. Now, we are a fully-online Academy so that anyone, anywhere can raise a wonderful, well-adjusted puppy into the dog they've always dreamed of.
IN THIS PROGRAM, YOU WILL LEARN HOW TO:
- Create positive associations with novel items, textures, sounds, people, dogs, so that you can prevent fear and aggression from developing as your puppy grows into an adult dog,
- Teach appropriate behaviours so that your puppy behaves like a polite canine citizen and you can take them many places with you, without embarrassment,
- Prevent problem behaviours like food/bone guarding, picking up dangerous items, jumping on people, barking at dogs, pottying in the house, biting your feet and hands, and ignoring you when you call,
- Build your confidence with dog-dog play, and on-leash interactions,
- Work “smart” at having a dog who is comfortable being handled for things like wet paws, brushing, nail trims, ear cleanings, and basic procedures with your Veterinarian or groomer,
- Really enjoy your puppy and this journey.
I have taken two puppies to TCCE - they were very different and both got what they needed to get a good start in life. It is rare to find trainers who have such respect for a dog that they take the time and apply their expertise to see what particular dogs need to do to express themselves and build their relationships. I have also gotten very realistic and useful help in dealing with a troubled dog and I am very grateful for the compassion and care we received. I really recommend TCCE.

But don't I need in-person lessons or classes?
During this worldwide pandemic, we are not comfortable putting our students at risk in a classroom environment.
We can give you a clear and effective roadmap to socialisation and training and we can guide you through doing just that despite the chaos going on in the world right now.
Our students are having incredible successes by setting up social-distancing playdates with each other via our Community.
More than anything, you need support. Five days a week, as you navigate puppyhood in a pandemic.
