(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.
(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:
Recalls with Distractions
Send to a Toy & Target
Body Awareness Exercises
Self Control exercises
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.
The next course is due to start on 7th December 2020. The one following on from this is likely to be early Feb 2021
