DOG trainer, Andy Ording from Paws in Time is offering free puppy socialisation classes in Durban North on Tuesday, 12 January.
Booking is essential due to Covid-19 restrictions and all puppies must have their second round of injections.
Ording said she decided to host the classes to raise awareness about the importance of puppy socialisation.
“I get a lot of behavioural consults and calls when dogs are about five or six months old and pet owners say they need their puppies to be social and listen to them. This is when dogs are reaching the adolescent stage and the socialisation window for puppies closes at 16 weeks so a lot of people have missed the boat by the time they reach out for help. I just want to educate people about the importance of puppy socialisation,” she said.
