Puppy classes What we cover

Basic Cues

The most common cues are probably known to most owners. Applying them and understanding their use is is vital to the health and safety of your dog. We will coach you how to teach these easily and methodically. Sit, Stay, Wait, Down, Leave, Touch, Watch . . . . .

Socialisation / Habituation

Everyone thinks of socialisation when they get their puppy but what is it really and where does habituation differ from Socialisation. Sounds complicated? We'll make it simple and straightforward for you.

Life Skills

We will help and advise you with all the common puppy questions, including toilet training, Settling in any situation, sleeping through the night, puppy mouthing / nipping, separation anxiety, chewing, confidence building and how to introduce your new puppy to children and other dogs or pets in your household.

Loose Lead Walking

We all know how frustrating it is when your dog starts pulling, lunging or criss-crossing in front of you on walks. With our easy to learn method for teaching loose lead walking, you will soon have a happy walk for you and your puppy!

Recalls

A strong recall is one of the key skills to have in your pocket to confidently allow your dog off lead in the park or other open spaces. The ability to have your dog come straight back to you when called is very satisfying and can keep them from possible dangers.
