Puppy Classes

If you own a puppy between 7 & 12 weeks old then come to one of my puppy classes.

A new puppy is an exciting time in any household and the first weeks are very important to setting your puppy on the right track. Your puppy has to learn what it is allowed to do and what behaviours are unacceptable. If you teach your puppy using positive rewards the learning experience will create a relationship to enjoy for your dog’s whole life.

The important outcomes from puppy school are:

  • Socialisation; your dog learns how to interact with other puppies and people
  • You learn how to teach your pup basic obedience skills e.g. sit, lie down, stay and come
  • You learn how to prevent unwanted behaviours in your dog such as toileting in the wrong places, chewing, mouthing and biting, stealing objects, crying at night or when separated
  • Identifying and managing normal play behaviour vs. aggressive or bullying behaviour
  • Education on feeding, vaccinations, flea and worm treatments, sterilisation, microchipping and pet insurance are part of the curriculum
