Puppy Training Programmes
With a wealth of experience, we are excited to be specialising in 1-2-1 programmes for puppies.
These programmes have been designed to give you personalised training. For puppies we can help you to work on fantastic foundations including life skills. Life skills can include politeness to visitors, going to the pub or cafe, family picnic, etc.
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 correct way.
Paws 4 Training do not deal with dog behavioural issues.
For any behaviour issues you may be having with your dog please get in touch with Tamasine Smith Leadchanges
What we can help with
We will put together a programme of all the exercises you would like to cover with your puppy. You will be sent links to supporting videos for the exercises that we work on to help you with your training at home.
Examples of what we can cover:
- Settle on a mat
- Focus exercises – response to name, eye contact and touch (target training)
- Bombproof sit
- Loose lead walking
- Stay or wait
- Emergency stop
- Canine enrichment
- Bite inhibition
- Prevention of chewing and tugging on clothes and hair etc.
- How to stop jumping up
- Leaving items, using distraction techniques
- Drop or exchange an item
- Calm meets and greets
- The super fun stuff – trick training, scent training, agility and hoopers
The methods we use include clicker training to help 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 allow your puppy time to think to work out what behaviour we want them to do. We always work at the puppy’s pace.
With over 14 years’ experience professional dog training and a lifetime experience of having dogs, you will be in great hands learning how to lay down excellent foundations for future training.
Each puppy and owner are unique, and we adapt our training to suit the clients we are working with.
