A Guide For The New Puppy In The Home


Ideally for puppies aged between 8 and 14 weeks. £70

puppy1Whilst it is an exciting time getting a new puppy in the home, it can also be daunting – and there are many things you need to know about to make sure your puppy has the best care when you bring them home.

The Puppy Pre-Training session is a 2-hour session which takes place in your own home. This can be prior to you collecting your new puppy, or soon after your puppy has arrived.

Being armed with knowledge will give your puppy the best start in life. During this session, we cover everything you need to know in order to help your puppy settle in to their new home, as well as a few basic training commands to get your puppy off on the right foot (or paw!).


Topics covered include:

  • The importance of training and early socialisation

  • Showing puppy right from wrong in a positive way with rewards

  • Early days – puppy development phases

  • Toilet training

  • Crate training – daytime & night-time

  • When you have to go out – what to do to avoid separation anxiety

  • Getting your puppy used to travelling

  • Preparing your puppy for walks

  • Socialising your puppy with strangers, children and other dogs

  • How to manage puppy mouthing/biting

  • Teaching your puppy to pay attention to you

  • Teaching your puppy to sit on command

You will also receive a full set of notes detailing everything covered during the session.
