What is Puppy School?


Puppy School is an established network of puppy training class tutors. At our puppy training classes, only kind, effective techniques are used and puppies are 'educated' to have good manners, be friendly with adults, children and other dogs, and to respond to commands. Puppy School training classes are of the highest standard and our professional tutors make our classes stimulating and fun for owners and puppies.

  • Training should be fun for everybody involved so we only use kind and fun techniques which are easy to apply
  • Courses run for 6 weeks with an hour session each week
  • Classes are small in size (4-8 puppies) to ensure you receive individual attention
  • Each week you will receive comprehensive hand outs and on completion of the course a certificate and rosette are awarded!
  • Courses are designed for puppies up to 20 weeks of age (contact me if your puppy is too old and we can arrange one to one sessions)
  • Puppies must be vaccinated (puppies may still attend if they have only had their first vaccination subject to agreement of their vet)
  • The entire family is welcome and encouraged including children over the age of 5 (if you have younger children please contact us to discuss this)

What’s covered during the 6 week course?

  • Basic position work such as sit, down and stand
  • Teaching puppies to walk nicely on lead without pulling
  • Ensuring puppies come when called so they can be let off lead safely
  • Good manners such as waiting when asked, leaving things, settling quietly and not jumping up
  • Socialisation exercises to ensure that the puppies are prepared for everything they may encounter in life such as being handled by strangers, meeting children, interacting with dogs and lots more!
  • General puppy issues such as house training and play biting
