  Presented by Maxwell Muir
CEUs: PPAB 1.5, IAABC 1.5, CCPDT 1.5


This presentation will explore the life of puppies and how they view the world they live in. We will look at the different stages of mental and physical development, focusing on socialisation, what it really means and what is best for each individual puppy. We will discuss how to increase a puppy's self-confidence; appropriate exercise for their stage of life and strategies for relieving boredom.  We will also take a look at coping with separation distress; toilet training; strategies for dealing with 'problem' behavior and above all, raising your puppy to be all it can be.

It is so easy to get it wrong in the early days of puppyhood, only to find yourself having to cope with problems as your puppy develops into adolescence. This talk will provide you with all you need to know to lay the best possible foundation and give your puppy the best start in life.

This presentation will be of benefit to anyone interested or currently working in a professional capacity with dogs. This presentation will also be beneficial to anyone who professionally cares for a puppy, is considering getting a puppy or for those who have already committed to bringing a puppy into their lives.

About the Presenter


'Dogs have always fascinated me. From the domestic dogs we share our lives with to their wild and feral counterparts. My training methods and interactions with dogs are completely humane and motivated by a deep love and respect for the animal. I am in a continuous search for further knowledge and learning experiences to deepen my appreciation for dogs and the lives they lead. I share this knowledge with the aim of helping both owners and their dogs live fuller lives together.'

Maxwell Muir is a keen writer and has published several articles related to dog training & behaviour. His personal interests with dogs are in observation skills; studying canine natural responses and movement; dog–dog & dog–human communication; stress & associated behaviour, and teaching appropriate communication and handling skills
