Puppy Clicker Training Course 

(If you would like to start our classes sooner than the dates listed, please call us to discuss as we may have the capacity to fit in further classes)

Our puppy clicker training course runs for 6 weeks and is suitable for puppies from 8 – weeks to 22 weeks. During the course we will cover socialisation, how to cope with everyday problems and distractions, whilst having fun and learning together.

We use clicker training in our classes. Clicker training is an operent conditioning method of training that produces great results. We encourage free-shaping as our method of training so the puppies learn in a kind and gentle way ensuring all dogs are calm and happy whilst they learn.  Treats are used along with the clicker.  A clicker will be provided for you to keep as part of the registration.
