Penwortham puppy trainer Meera Puppins has launched Socialisation Sundays to teach young dogs how to behave.

Meera has been working with The Golden Ball of Longton, two-time winners of the Lancashire Tourism Award for Dog Friendly Business of the Year.

She founded Socialisation Sundays to provide a real-life opportunity for puppies to build their life and social skills, as well as to bring puppy owners from the local community together in an enjoyable way.

Meera said: “During lockdown, puppies were not able to socialise, which has caused many of them to be anxious around other dogs and people. They can be unsure of how to behave in different situations, including how to behave nicely in the pub.

By founding Socialisation Sundays, my aim is to help puppies, and their owners, to feel confident in real life situations, using positive training and socialisation techniques.”

Meera explained how she makes use of the local natural environment to teach the puppies.

She said: “We begin with a stimulating walk down to a nearby nature reserve, so the puppies can experience sensory and environmental socialisation.

“We play fun and positive games that help to keep the puppies calm, and safe, especially around the wildlife at the nature reserve.

“After the walk, we head back to The Golden Ball where dogs are very welcome inside.”
