Help Your Puppy Live a Long & Happy Life

Raising a puppy during the Covid era presents some special challenges. Puppies get used to the routines of this time, and will need special training to avoid fear and other issues when routines change again.

Vet care is also harder during this time, as the intake process is different and you may want (or be mandated to) only go to the vet during times of crisis. It’s important to know what health concerns to look for in your puppy.

Being at home a lot more, particularly with children, also presents more challenges in terms of puppy biting, jumping up, sleep, stealing / guarding, and more.

Recorded live in October, 2020

  • Body handling: why and how to help your puppy get used to touch.

  • Direct help for pet families and also useful for professionals.

  • Preventing separation-related issues.

What are the Puppy-Raising Challenges Now?

Even if you've raised many dogs, this is a different experience!

  • Who is This For?

    The main aim of this webinar is to help families with their dogs.

    This webinar is also helpful to dog professionals, including dog trainers, breeders, and shelter staff advising adopters, due to Katey's perspective as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and behaviorist currently consulting with clients and puppies.

  • Live On-Demand recording

    Watch right away to get tips useful for new puppies. Excellent for anyone with a puppy.

    The information that I found most helpful, as a trainer, was the section on what kinds of health issues are common in puppies. Which require a vet visit, and which don’t?

  • Bonus Material

    With your registration, you get a streaming video presentation and a PDF of the slides to help you understand the material more thoroughly.

I found it very informative and helpful.

I guess it gives a link to time frame of webinar but more just puppies in general vs pandemic ones.
