Puppy Classes

Are you are thinking of getting a puppy to enrich your life?

Maybe you have just added a four-legged furry friend member to your family household?

Either way, you will need to know how to navigate the wealth of information that is involved with raising a puppy.

We offer Puppy School 6 week courses to allow you to get to know your new addition. Open to fully vaccinated puppies under 20 weeks old, these sessions cover the basics that you need to know when welcoming a puppy into your family:
  • Come when called
  • Sit, lie down and stand on a verbal cue
  • Walk on a loose lead without pulling
  • Getting used to being handled by a vet or groomer
  • Stay
  • Settle
  • Gentle (taking food like a lama!)
  • Accept people being near bowls, food and high value chews
  • Stopping play biting
  • Socialise with adults, children and other puppies attending
  • Greet people appropriately without jumping up
  • If appropriate, puppies may be allowed to play in carefully controlled small groups to learn good manners around other puppies. *
These sessions will help build your puppy’s confidence, teach them to interact with other dogs (in the puppy classes) and provide solutions to the most common challenges faced when getting a new puppy.
Throughout your course, your class tutor will be on hand to provide you with modern, effective solutions for any behavioural problems.

As if that wasn’t enough, all Puppy School attendee’s will receive a free training manual to ensure you get started on the right paw!
 
*Please note that, in some classes, the mix of puppies may make it impossible to conduct puppy play sessions safely. Puppy play sessions will only be offered if they can be run without causing harm.
