Puppy Foundation Course.

This course is for puppies from the age of 12 weeks to 20 weeks old, this is so all puppies in class are of a similar age. Ideally no older than 18 weeks old at the start of the course.

This course is a very popular course, so the earlier you book your puppy onto the foundation course the better, so bad habits don’t creep in.

Call Kathryn for dates of future courses.

We teach you how to train your puppy the basic requirements for good manners, and all training in class is with positive & reward methods. 

This is a structured 6 week course so you will learn something new every week.

All commands learnt in class will  be relevant to your every day life.

You will learn how to get your puppies attention with the “Watch me” command, get your puppy to Sit and Stay, how to get your puppy to “Leave” items and if they pick them up to “Drop them”, how to socialise your puppy correctly ,learn the “method” for a good recall ,and most importantly how to teach your puppy to walk nicely on the lead.

At the start of each new class, we always revise the commands you learnt the previous week, just to see how you are doing, and if you are having any problems.

All puppies must have an up to date current vaccination certificate which must be brought to class at the first lesson.

This course is for dogs with sound temperament .If your dog  barks at other dogs, or is not comfortable with other dogs around them, then our classes may make your dog stressed, and you may be more suited to a 1-2-1- Home Training where your dog can be trained in more familiar surroundings.

The exercises you will learn on the Puppy Foundation course are…

  • “Watch me” .For your puppy to focus on you.
  •  Sit, & Lie Down, commands.
