What's covered in our Puppy Training programme

 

  • We help you teach some of the basic training cues such as settle, attention, sit, down, loose lead walking and recall. We cover the basic life skills that your puppy will need, enabling them to grow into happy adult dogs.

  • We provide advice on issues such as toilet training, puppy biting, life skills, as well as useful tips on how to prevent some common behaviour problems and how to prepare puppies for the groomers and vets etc.

  • Puppies are given some opportunity to practice their social skills on lead with suitable play mates in a supervised, safe environment. We discuss the best ways to socialise your puppy and demonstrate what positive interactions should look like. 

  • All our training is reward and science based, and our classes are small to allow for plenty of one-to-one attention.

  • You will receive a puppy pack, a puppy manual, instruction videos and a free clicker, vouchers as well as membership to our Facebook community for ongoing advice and support.
