Puppy Group - The Good Puppy Award
We run group training for a maximum of eight puppies and their owners from four months to approximately 12 months.
All training is positive and reward-based, held outdoors on fenced land. Training young puppies outdoors can sometimes become weather restricted, which is why we start at around three months old. Younger, vaccinated puppies may join depending on the weather and may be encouraged to come for a shorter period than the usual hour.
Outdoor classes allow us flexibility with training in a more natural environment and encourages an easier transfer of training practices into the normal day-to-day life of the puppy and owner.
The puppy course is suitable for most breeds and covers:
loose lead walking
sit and stay
basic health, and
A puppy that happily learns not to pull on a lead is happy and well-adjusted and will be a joy to their family for many years
The Good Puppy Award will begin the basic training of your puppy and is covered in approximately six weeks. Once your puppy has 'passed' each stage of the course you will be awarded a rosette and be ready to move onto the next course the Intermediate Puppy Award
We appreciate that most people come to puppy classes with these aims in mind and we do our absolute best to help owners achieve them. We are not here to train your puppy for you, but to help you train your puppy. The training sessions will encourage good practices that you can continue at home and whilst out and about with your puppy.
