Ideally for puppies aged between 12 and 20 weeks, but can also be adapted to suit older puppies.
The Puppy Training Course is a 5-week course which takes place in your own home, on days/times to suit you, with each session lasting approximately an hour.
All of our training methods use positive reinforcement. Each week, new exercises will be introduced, as well as a re-cap of what was learnt the previous week.
This training programme has been designed for puppies that have had little or no previous training, and will give them a fantastic overall start to life as an educated dog.
The sessions are enjoyable for both the owner and the puppy, and build the foundation for a happy, confident relationship.
