Puppy Classes


Puppy classes are all about socialising your puppy in a safe and controlled environment so they learn to interact well with other dogs, people and vets! You will also learn how to best look after your pet, understand their language and teach them some basic obedience skills. All of these things help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.

Puppies most benefit from socialisation before 12 weeks of age, but due to the risk of contracting infection before complete vaccination a lot of puppies are not socialised until they are over 4months old. This can result in apprehension and agression when they are faced with an unfamiliar dog or person. Bad behaviours can be well estabished in puupyhood, so isn't it best to teach them right, right from the beginning?


Puppy Classes will teach you;


  • An understanding of normal puppy behaviour.
  • How to read your puppy's body language and respond appropriately.
  • Effective techniques for positive behavioural development.
  • Important tips about walking in public areas.
  • The need for socialising your puppy.
  • Teach your puppy some important 'do not' lessons.
  • Understand important boundaries when playing together.
  • Develop strong bonds between you and your puppy.

 The most important thing about Puppy Pre-school is 'start early'. Waiting too long can allow behaviour problems to establish which then require more intensive training to overcome.
