Puppy Training Course

Puppy Training Course

Our new puppy training course has been designed to help you lay down a good foundation level of training for your puppy. They are a great building block for your puppy’s training progression and will help with their behaviour and socialisation as they are heading towards adolescence.

The techniques we use for our training are different to many other puppy training classes. We use behaviour based training techniques which are very effective with puppies and teenage dogs.

Our training is reward based. Rewards can be in different forms. Firstly we initially use food and praise. From time to time when it is appropriate we will also use toy play, which can help some puppies to keep engaged with their owner.

Who can attend our puppy training course?

Puppies can attend our puppy training course from when they have had their first vaccination and up until 20 weeks of age. The sooner you start your puppy’s training the better. If puppies have been brought up with their mum and have come from a great background they will carry immunity from their mum until around 15 weeks of age.

We can have up to two people per puppy in the training area working with each puppy. This includes one well-behaved child. We are happy for them to be involved in your puppy’s training. We have a spectator area where other family members can watch the training. You may switch handlers during the class.

What if my puppy is close to 20 weeks or older?

If your puppy is close to 20 weeks or older it is likely to be too old to join our puppy training course and therefore it will be best for you to have a training assessment with us. This will give us a good idea if we can help with your dog’s training. We will put together a bespoke training plan. 1-2-1 Training Programmes.

We may find from the assessment that you require behavioural support. We recommend Tamasine Smith from Leadchanges Dog Behaviour. Tamasine is a qualified and experienced behaviourist who we work closely with and highly recommend.
