The puppy classes are suitable for puppies who have been vaccinated (usually from around 12/13 weeks) and we accept puppies up to 16/17 weeks of age depending on the breed and size of the dog.
We follow the Kennel Club Good Citizen Puppy Foundation award and are proud of our high success rate. Rarely do we come across a puppy who is not ready to achieve the award. The course is an 8 week programme and our experienced instructors will assist you in getting the most out of your dog in a fun and relaxed environment. We must stress that we are not here to train your dog – that is your job! What we are able to do is demonstrate the fundamentals of basic dog obedience to you.
Puppies who are successful on this course will ‘graduate’ being able to walk to heel, respond to their name via recall, do a basic retrieve, demonstrate the three basic control positions (sit, stand and down) and also perform a short stay. Aside from being an excellent way of learning how to have an obedient puppy the course is also provides a way of allowing your puppy to become socialised with other puppies.
