Puppy obedience & socialisation class
Adding an additional member to your ever-growing family is both exciting and daunting. Puppies have a short development stage lasting around 17 weeks of age. It’s in this short period the training, socialising and environmental training carried out, will shape your dog forever.
Our Puppy Obedience & Socialisation Class is perfect for dogs under 5 months of age. We go through the A-Z of where to start with your new addition, what to do next and how to keep on the right track.
Classes are 6 weeks long with each class 1 hour long, held on a Sunday. The first session is classroom based because it is not just the puppies who need to go to school. 1/3 of each class is set aside to ensure for that all-important right age socialisation. The classes cover everything you will need to know, covering over 25 subjects both orally and practically in an informative, relaxed way, just how it should be! Finally, we ONLY use positive-reinforcement methods and you may bring along one friend/family member with you.
Some of the subjects we cover are:
Toilet/House Train Mouthing (Biting)
Chewing Canine Enrichment
Return when called Toys & Rewards
Loose Leash Walking Multiple Tricks
Sit & Stay Communication
Children & Puppies Right age socialisation
A work booklet is handed to you on the first day which you get to keep, and will use throughout the course and beyond. All dogs receive a rosette and certificate on completion and that sense of achievement between both you and dog, is absolutely free. There is also a Whatsapp group throughout for daily assistance.
No other course around offers all of this!
Vaccinations, both first and second round.
