Puppy Training Course

Puppy Training Classes

Bringing home a puppy is a wonderful occasion, but soon the realisation sinks in that you have a tiny little fluff ball that bites, barks, cries, chews anything in sight and goes to the toilet more times a day than you thought physically possible!Puppies start to learn as soon as we bring them home; which isn’t necessarily a good thing. During the first few months of a puppy’s life, the experiences he goes through will shape the dog he will become as an adult.

Everyone wants a puppy to be part of the family, to enjoy long walks in the countryside, have a buddy to cuddle up to and to live with in harmony. All of these are possible, but if a puppy doesn’t build the right associations, isn’t socialised correctly with dogs and people or taught how to behave, the chances of that happening are slim.

This is why joining a good puppy class at the earliest opportunity is a must. Our puppy classes teach your puppy how to behave in real life situations; such as being in the house, the vets, out on a walk and in public.

Our training classes are run using the Operation Socialization Scheme. This guides you through exactly how to socialise your puppy; how to create positive associations, where to take your puppy, who to introduce them to, how to deal with situations that frighten your puppy and how to identify if your puppy is truly comfortable about a variety of situations.

Every week after class you are sent an email detailing all of the behaviours we have studied during class. This way you will always be able to look back on them no matter how much time has past. If you begin to experience problems or you haven’t trained for a while and would like to begin again our training notes are the perfect tool to help you.

  • Settling
  • Recall
