Puppy training

Congratulations on getting a new puppy! It’s a really exciting time but it can also be a bit overwhelming. There’s so much to train  and your puppy has to be socialised and you just want to get it right. I am here to guide you and ensure that your puppy is set up to be a wonderful pet dog. Did you know that a studies have found that puppies who went to a puppy class were later friendlier with strangers, less prone to behaviour problems and more trainable? Sounds like the jackpot!

Puppy class Requirements

must have Both sets of vaccinations to start puppy class

Being a group class and based in a rescue centre it is important that your puppy is fully vaccinated before starting the group class to ensure the health of them and the other puppies in the class. For 1-1 sessions this is not necessary.

Puppies must be under 6 months old

Puppies grow up really quickly! At 6 months old most puppies would be classed as adolescents and the training will change slightly for them Click here if your puppy is over 6 months old

No harsh handling or aversive tools

“Violence begins where knowledge ends”. Lucky for you I have bags of puppy training knowledge so we have no need to resort to violence. Aversive tools such as choke chains, prong or electric collars are not permitted in class. Harsh handling will not be tolerated. I will support you in understanding how you can build success with your puppy in a kind and effective way.  


Bring a crazy amount of treats, and some fun

Of course we want to be positively reinforcing our puppies, but I also want the owners to have fun! Classes are a great place to meet people in a similar boat, share stories and have a laugh. Honestly if you’re actually enjoying yourself, your puppy will feel great about the whole situation.
