Puppy training is a crucial part of any dogs training journey.
Our classes will give your puppy a great start to their training and will help you progress quickly with any further training you choose to attend with us.
This course is suitable for puppies from when they have had their 2nd vaccination and up until 24 weeks of age.
Please contact us if you would like to watch one of our puppy classes.
If your puppy hasn’t had its 2nd vaccination and you are keen to start with their learning and for you to learn about the best way to bring up your puppy. Please contact us to book a virtual puppy consultation.
What you and your puppy will learn:
- Settle on a mat
- Focus exercises – response to name, eye contact and touch (target training)
- Loose lead walking
- Basic chin exercise to assist with calm handling
- Handling to prevent biting
- Training to prevent biting at clothes

Our training methods use clicker training to help you teach your puppy a good foundation level of training which will be progressed to working under distraction.
By using luring and free-shaping this will help you to achieve the above behaviours with your puppy.

We first brought Jefferson to Paws 4 Training when he was just 8 weeks old. He was teeny tiny but it was important for us to take him to puppy school as early as possible. He is a boisterous Hungarian Wirehair Vizsla, who is fast growing into a giant! Naomi’s calm teaching methods using positive commands, lots of treats and the clicker have been revolutionary for us, and people we meet often comment on how well Jefferson responds to us. The bond we have with Jefferson has been strengthened by attending classes together. Naomi has taught us to be better, more patient dog owners too, so puppy school isn’t just for dogs!
We will keep attending Paws 4 Training classes as it is a vital part of Jefferson’s socialisation and education. Having graduated from Puppy to Novice, we’re looking forward to seeing Jefferson develop into a smart and obedient dog under Naomi’s careful guidance.
It is clear how much Naomi loves all the dogs she meets, and we’re able to talk about all aspects of “dog life” including raw feeding, dog health and general dog behaviour.
Jefferson absolutely loves his weekly session and we are thrilled to have found such a great trainer with Naomi – Aimee and Joe with Jefferson
