Puppy Foundation Course.

This puppy foundation course, is for puppies from the age of 12 weeks to 21 weeks old. 

On this course we teach you how to train your puppy the basic requirements for good manners, and all training in class is with positive & reward based methods, as the course progresses we teach you how to “wean” off food treats and show you how to still “reward” your dog with toys, and praise, so training is still fun. 

We also teach you how to socialise your puppy correctly, so your puppy grows into a confident dog.

This is a structured 6 week course so you will learn something new every week. We teach your puppy important life skills that are required for them to be a well mannered, member of your family. 

Everything you learn in class will  be relevant to your every day life, we teach your puppy to focus on you, whilst there are distractions around them, to sit and stay, so you can happily open doors and know your puppy will not run out, to leave items, to drop items that they have pinched, and much more.

The commands you learn on this course, are also put into games, & exercises, so you can still have fun whilst training your puppy.

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.
Our aim is to make training enjoyable for both you and your dog.

Once you have completed this course you can, if you wish, further your training by attending the Junior course.
