What is puppy socialisation?

When the word ‘socialisation’ is used we often think of dogs meeting other dogs, however it is SO much more! Socialisation is the process where we teach our puppy how to live and cope with all the human world has to offer. The following is the first clip in a series that will demonstrate and explain this fun process! Thanks to Dr Anna Sim,  (who is joining the Kalmpets team in 2017!) her adorable new puppy Willow and Kalmpets head trainer Tracey Lord for the video.
