Puppies' ability to learn and to accept everything strange and new around them is greatest when they are very young, up to 4-5 months of age. Thus the earlier they can start the learning process and be exposed to everything around them the better. Laying an early foundation of training and socialisation will help to prevent future behavioural problems and help you have a fulfilling relationship with your young friend right from the start. Your puppy is your companion for life.

The course will cover everything that is normally covered in our regular puppy classes apart from supervised play with other puppies for obvious reasons and can be tailored to suit your needs. All the following will be covered:

  • How dogs learn
  • How to communicate with your dog
  • Basic manners
  • Basic training skills
    • Walking on a loose lead
    • Sit, down, stand
    • Wait
    • Recall
    • Leave it
    • Greeting people (not jumping up!)
  • Training techniques including clicker training
  • Discussion and advice on common problems
    • Setting the house rules
    • Housetraining
    • Diet and exercise
    • Chewing
    • Separation anxiety
    • Toyplay
  • Opportunities for further training

We also offer follow-on puppy classes/lessons so you are welcome to stay beyond the initial training period.
