What are the Paws 4 Puppy Programmes?
With a wealth of experience we are excited to be specialising in puppy training.
The puppy programmes have been designed to give you personalised training programmes to lay down fantastic foundation training for your puppy, including life skills and training.
Helping both novice and experienced owners right from the start to create the perfect relationship between you and your puppy.
Owning a puppy can make owners feel very overwhelmed. Putting people and puppies in a class environment isn’t always the answer especially if you have never owned a puppy or dog before.
Don’t worry about socialisation; we will teach you the correct way to socialise your puppy.
There is so much more to socialisation than allowing puppies to play. We will give you the information and help to ensure that your puppy is socialised to your world in the right way
What you and your puppy will learn:
We will put together a training program of all the exercises you would like to cover with your puppy. This can be different for everyone.
You will be given access to our members area on our website where you will have access to supporting training videos and documentation. Access to the area will start from when you have paid for your sessions in full and for 1 month after your final session.
Examples of what we will cover:
- Correct socialisation and habituation
- Toilet training
- Bite prevention
- Crate training
- Canine enrichment
- Life skills
- Settle training
- Impulse control
- Handling exercises
- Loose lead walking
- Basic obedience including sit, down and wait
- Scent training
- Tricks – for the children to teach!
All of our training is based on positive reward and clicker training.
We will use these techniques whilst under distraction and also use luring and free-shaping to help you achieve the above behaviours with your dog.
Please see here for more information about the techniques we use.
Our training is based around using treats. Don’t panic about the quantity you will use for your training sessions. You can use your dogs daily portion to train them. It’s so easy to manage their food intake, no matter what you feed them.
Our training is suitable for puppies under the age of 6 months.
