Puppy Training

(First Injection -6 months)

Our puppy classes are not your average class. We cover important socialisation experiences for your puppy which include meeting new people, new dogs and puppies their own age (in a controlled manor, not a run around free for all), new surfaces, new sounds, recalls, basic puppy positions, walking on a  lead and help and advice on toilet training and nipping and chewing (and probably a lot more!). We also work towards the Kennel Club Good Citizen Puppy Foundation Award.


Classes are limited to 5 puppies  to ensure you get enough time with an instructor and to ensure that your puppy does not become overwhelmed in a new environment. Its important that puppy socialisation should be a positive experience.

Puppies must have had their first vaccination before attending and be under 6 months old.



Puppy Progression

(5 Months -1 year)

For older puppies and continuation of training we offer a puppy progression course which builds on the skills learned in puppy class but also teaches some new tricks and skills and gives you an opportunity to continue the puppies learning. Some of the things we do over the 6 weeks are:

Toy Play

Recalls with Distractions

Send to a Toy & Target

Food Manners

Reliable Wait

Body Awareness Exercises


Self Control exercises

& more...

Getting a Puppy?


Top tip: Get booked onto a puppy course sooner rather than later - dont wait until the puppy is 12 weeks old and has had both its vaccines before starting to look and wanting an immediate start- most good training classes will only take a small number of puppies so you will need to wait until there is room. Early socailisation and training is so important!

Our Puppy & Puppy Progression classes run on a Monday night and are 6 weeks long.


Puppy Training will not resume until late May due to restrictions on using the training building. We are not currently taking bookings for when we re open.We are offering a number of online classes for both puppy training and Agility of various levels. Please get in touch or visit
