Puppy School classes are a 6 week course, with each session lasting an hour and provide an excellent opportunity for training and socialisation for your puppy, using only kind and effective methods.
They are fun and children over 5years of age are welcome to attend with their parents.
The following exercises will be covered during the 6 week course:
- Come when called
- ‘Sit’, ‘down’, ‘stand’
- Walk on loose lead
- Socialisation with adults, children attending class, and other puppies
- How to greet humans appropriately
- Getting used to be handled, examined, hugged, and lifted by owners/strangers
- Food bowl, chew and bone manners
This will provide you with the skills to teach your puppy at home, as you will need to practice all the exercises covered in class to help raise a well adjusted and well mannered dog.
There is a maximum of 8 puppies in each class to ensure we can provide a good training environment.
All puppies must be vaccinated and under 20 weeks of age to join the classes.
We do get booked up in advance so if you are interested in attending our classes please make contact early to help avoid disappointment.
If you have any further questions about the classes then please do get in touch or if you would like to know what vacancies we currently have available.
Junior classes are for those dogs that have either completed the Puppy School course or are between 5/6months and 1 year of age.
This is a 6 week course using reward based training. It can be highly beneficial to go on to the junior class after the puppy classes to continue to train your dog.
If you have an older puppy that has attended classes elsewhere or has not been able to attend classes yet then please contact us to see if these classes would be appropriate for your dog.
Our junior classes are normally held at Netley Marsh, Nr Totton and at West Wellow, please contact us for more details or to reserve a place.
