Socialising your puppy, properly, can feel like a bit of a minefield. Especially if you’re a first time puppy owner, or if you’re constantly being bombarded by conflicting “advice” from well-meaning friends and family.

It’s easy to feel frustrated or confused by your puppy’s socialisation needs. Especially if your puppy is overly-friendly with other dogs – pulling like a train to go and say hello to every dog they see. Equally, if your puppy is nervous or anxious around other dogs, this can also impact the fun of your daily walks.

If you’re looking to join in with some fun, relaxed, safe and structured group puppy socialisation, then look no further!

Socialisation Sundays started with my mission to help your puppy learn social skills for the real-world,. What could be better than enjoying a social Sunday stroll with your puppy, followed by a delicious Sunday roast at an award winning, dog friendly pub?

Not much, I agree!

Puppies that regularly attend Socialisation Sundays benefit from developing their puppy manners and social skills, through my expert and gentle guidance. Nervous puppies can safely socialise and build their confidence. Over-confident puppies learn how to enjoy calmer greetings with their four legged friends.

Socialisation Sundays are a fantastic opportunity to meet like-minded puppy owners, and to pick my expert puppy trainer brain.

Socialisation Sundays take place on the 2nd Sunday of each month, in collaboration with an award winning, dog-friendly pub, The Golden Ball of Longton.

Socialisation Sundays are held on the 2nd Sunday of every month

Happy Puppy Owners say:


What a great way to start our families puppy 🐶 journey.

Benji got to meet and make friends with 9 other pups 🐶 at the same time as we got to share our hints and tips and seek advice from other owners and ask more specific questions of Meera in relation to where Benji is in his development.

It was a fun and relaxed walk, if not a little windy, but wholeheartedly worth it and look forward to taking part in the next one 😀
