Puppy Training
Every puppy needs puppy training! Our puppy training classes provide you with an owner's guide to your new best friend and start off as you mean to go on - on the right paw!​
We cover basic commands, housetraining, crate training, nipping and chewing, all while providing developmentally critical opportunities for early socialisation and confidence building.

​We also have a range of different options from workshops to 121 training - everything you need to give your new addition the best start in life.
​Our classes and workshops fill up well in advance so new owners are advised to book early! Please check availability by clicking here before making a booking.
  1. PUPPY SCHOOL
    1
    Start off on the right paw with our Puppy School, learning age-appropriate behaviours in a fun, relaxed environment, designed to introduce your puppy to basic skills that will set the foundations for later learning. During the 6 week course we’ll focus on getting your pup’s attention, sit, down, stay, polite greetings, accepting handling etc. We tackle common problem puppy behaviours like jumping, nipping and mouthing, and begin work on loose-leash walking and coming when called. We'll also give your puppy some playtime when they can learn those valuable social skills needed to grow into a well rounded adult dog. This course is highly rated by our students and our experienced trainers will help you set your pup up for success! ​Includes weekly handouts and a free Puppy Gift Pack. ​Prerequisites: For puppies two to eight months old ​Cost: £80 ​Next class: Sat 16 June

Karen is very hands on and has a very soothing voice when speaking to the dogs. She also has a team of lovely ladies to help, so no one is left struggling! These ladies are also great & they notice quickly when someone needs a hand.
Teddy & I will be going through all the classes Karen offers. Brilliant!
