Don’t under estimate your puppy’s need for socialisation

The most important exercise we carry out is socialisation to sounds and other puppies.  The most crucial time for learning canine communication to other dogs is around 7 weeks to 16 weeks of age, known as the human socialisation period. The socialisation will be carried in accordance with social distancing.

What you can achieve and gain from my classes

This course is not only the foundation to the future of your puppy’s life, it will also help get your puppy responding to you more. My puppy classes will help you gain an understanding of responsible dog ownership and psychology of the puppy training, giving you the best understanding what to do when your puppy performs unwanted puppy behaviours too.


Once your puppy has permission from a vet to socialise and go for walks you can start puppy training classes. The cut off age is 30 weeks. The reason for this is, a dog starts to enter adolescent, averagely then mature around 11-14 months. Unlike other classes available we adhere to this because exposing your puppy to older dogs could do more harm than good at this crucial learning age.

How big are the group sizes?

I size the puppy classes accordingly to the premises or property being hired to conduct the classes. At the start of this article is the class size for the venue being used.

Can the family attend?

I welcome all the family to attend, as long as its within government guidelines due to COVID19. If you think your child could impact on the class with their behaviour then please consider not to bring them. Thank you.

Can I use a harness? Flexi lead? What other training equipment ?

The use of harnesses is acceptable, but no flexi leads please. I encourage you to purchase a treat bag and to use quality treats to reinforce wanted obedience.

Head harnesses are also permissible during classes, I can recommend one to you during the equipment check as part of the classes.

Please remember by law dogs must wear a collar, with a ID tag attached to it. With the right relevant information. 

Please bring a toy for your dog

There will be time for a short play session, so please bring a toy. This training is assessable on how your puppy releases the item in a group exercise.

Demonstrating good dog ownership

It’s important that owners demonstrate this by clearing up any toilet occurrences during classes. Please bring poo bags as required by law and dispose of them accordingly away from the venue. There is a purpose dog bin close to the facilities just outside the car park to dispose of toilets before you head home.
