Puppy Information
At Waggingtons, we understand that puppies require special care and attention, and we're dedicated to ensuring their time with us is both enriching and nurturing using a programme of care incorporating the following: 


1. Social Interaction: We believe in exposing puppies to a variety of experiences, including interactions with people of different ages, including fellow Waggingtons clients and, whenever possible, children of clients, all in accordance with the owner's instructions. We encourage supervised handling to help puppies become more comfortable around strangers with the owner's consent.


2. Canine Socialisation: Puppies are introduced to dogs of various sizes, ages, and breeds in a controlled and supervised environment. This interaction not only helps them learn canine etiquette from older dogs, and can also contribute to toilet training and bite inhibition.

3. Sensory Exposure: We expose puppies to a range of noises, objects, and activities throughout the day to habituate them to different stimuli, promoting their stability and confidence in daily life.

4. Positive Reinforcement:  We use treats in a supervised manner to teach puppies to share and be patient. This positive training approach, based solely on rewards, helps address unwanted behaviors and provides guidance.

5. Guided Play and Exercise: Socialization, exercise, and play are actively encouraged, always in accordance with the owner's instructions. This guidance helps puppies develop valuable skills within a group of well-adjusted dogs.

6. Rest and Mental Stimulation: Puppies are provided with ample rest periods and supervised opportunities to chew on appropriate toys, as per the owner's instructions. This not only eases teething issues but also stimulates their mental growth and overall well-being.

7. Customized Exercise Plan: We work with owners to implement a tailored exercise plan that considers the specific needs of the puppy. This plan is regularly revised to accommodate the puppy's growth and changing requirements.

Our goal is to provide a safe, engaging, and educational environment for your puppy, ensuring they grow into confident and well-behaved companions.
