Socialization for Small, Timid or Fearful Dogs & New Puppies

Whether your dog is fearful because of a previous negative experience or just shy and in need of some positive experiences, small & timid dog socialization classes are a great way to build confidence and teach your dog to enjoy the presence of other dogs and people.  They're also a great opportunity for you to learn about canine communication, such as calming signals and deterrent behaviour.  Quite often small or timid puppies are initially overwhelmed by the combination of a new classroom and more energetic puppies romping around in their first few puppy classes.  To help with this, I offer a free socialization class for small or timid puppies before or during their first set of classes. 

When: Saturdays at 12:30

Classes are $10.00/session and require sign up, they are not drop in.  Proof of up to date vaccines is required. If you are interested please sign up by using the button below or by sending me an Email with yours and your dogs name at heidiparsons@fullpawtentialdog.com.


Socialization for Confident Dogs

So your dog already loves other dogs and is ready to play.  Great!  This class is an opportunity for your dog to have fun while learning to maintain acceptable energy levels in play (no overwhelming or bullying), bite-inhibition and self-control.  Dogs are taught each week to earn play with calm behaviour, and if you've graduated from any of the Life Lessons Classes, you can also start to work on some of your commands (such as leave it, recall, and sits for greetings) under distractions.

Anyone looking for puppy or dog training? Heidi Parsons is amazing. In a very short time, she has taken my super timid girl and made her much braver around people and dogs. 100% I will be using Heidi for all my current and future dog training needs and we all know there will be lots more pups for me haha
