  • Choosing a Puppy
    problems Are the parents cowering away from you are they aggressive or do they run away from you Are the parents barking at you Puppies can grow up to be like their parents so if you see any of the above problems it is possible that the puppies will grow up with the same problem The puppies The puppies should look clean happy and healthy Their environment should be clean and warm with warm bedding and fresh water They should be moving around normally and not sitting in an unusual manner could indicate underlying hip problems They should be eating a well balanced diet Find out how often they have human contact it should be frequent throughout the day Are the puppies kept in the house If not are they warm dry and experiencing the normal background noises in a home such as the radio people talking and walking sounds of the kitchen etc Have the puppies been experiencing an enriched environment this is when the pups are given different toys to play with and areas to explore Puppies need to explore small areas and have things to play with in order to simulate them mentally which will help their brains to develop normally However they should not be given too many things or too large an area to explore because this could be over whelming and frighten them But it is important for them to have a few objects and small amounts of new experiences which will stimulate all 5 senses to help them to develop mentally and physically New experiences must be given carefully to the new pup Remember if you don t like what you see make your excuses and leave Puppy s Age At 4 weeks the puppies should be weaned onto a solid diet Find out what food the puppy is eating Puppies should legally not be sold at less than 6 weeks old Ideally a puppy should be 8 weeks of age when they go to a new home this allows for the mother to have completed her disciplinary training of the pups such as teaching bite inhibition This time is a very important learning time for the pups they learn how to interact and communicate with other dogs properly However not every mother is good at discipline and in large litters the mother can not always get around to them all so if they are left with their siblings too long some may become bullies Therefore puppies are usually recommended for sale at 8 to 10 weeks of age Once the decision has been made the breeder should supply you with all the necessary paperwork and a diet sheet telling you exactly what how much and when the pup is fed It is very important not to change the diet immediately as this can cause stomach upset Remember it will be stressful for the pup to leave its family and to go into a new home with virtual strangers Allow your pup time

  • General Course Information
    you might come across how you might sort out a problem etc Of course the tutor will have their own solutions but by involving the whole class in identifying some of the issues it encourages you to think about what might happen You will have an ongoing assessment we keep an eye on everyone during the course to make sure you are keeping up with everything being taught Plus a small mini assessment in the practical area at the end of the course to make sure you are able to explain an exercise demonstrate with a dog and help your clients fellow students address any problems they may have This is by way of rounding off the course but we will have made sure that you are ready for it We teach our students with the same ethos as we teach owners and dogs setting them up for success sorting out minor problems before they become major ones and sorting out any questions or concerns along the way Does the course have a required reading list We all benefit from reading around a subject but again it is often difficult to know which books are the most useful relevant Ask your course provider what books they would suggest you read to help you with your learning Do you get support during and after the course APDT UK have found it very useful for students to have Facebook groups Each year group has one for the duration of the course On completion they are invited to join another group for people who have attended our courses and are given support and advice by both tutors and former students via these groups for as long as they need it There is no charge for this support Does the course fee include accommodation and or food APDT UK run their courses at Moulton College in Northamptonshire We include the cost of an en suite room in the Halls of Residence plus all meals and tea and coffee whilst on the course This has two major benefits one it saves on the cost of food and accommodation while attending the course but the biggest benefit is that you are staying with your fellow students This gives you the opportunity to discuss the classes experience away from the course career path etc and make friends The tutors also stay on site so you have access to them practically 24 7 although we do try to keep some sleep each night if you want to ask a question share concerns or just chat Is the course overseen by an accrediting body Anyone can offer courses but some organisations like APDT UK feel it is a good idea to have an accrediting body looking at the course making sure that standards are being met that the tutors are competent to deliver the subjects etc APDT UK s courses are accredited by apt awards despite the similarity in initials they are nothing to do with APDT UK They
