Our companion dogs have the hardest of jobs to do in our family environments. They have to learn many skills to be an added family member so starting early, in my opinion is a must. My puppy classes are designed around getting the best start for our companion dogs.


In this class we cover how to build a positive relationship between you and you puppy, covering socialisation, play and the start of basic obedience.


As an owner you may already be feeling the pressure of having a new puppy, whether it’s  your first dog or 5th. In this class we will make it as fun for you as the puppy. Working on issues you might be finding, like those dreaded shark teeth, to how to deal with the constant advise you get from others. It’s already hard without having to sort out the misinformation and the outdated methods from the new.


Our training is based on modern methods using science helping you to dispel the myths. Making it simple to understand and easy to learn.
