The Puppy Group Classes are a great way to achieve proper socialisation as they learn to focus on you while there are other dogs and people nearby. If you have an older puppy or rescue dog, get in touch and we can discuss if these classes are suitable.

We recommend puppies be fully vaccinated when classes start.

Social Training Walks

These social training walks will give a significant enhancement to your existing training. By venturing out into various environments, these group walks provide valuable real-life experiences for your dog’s training progress.

Please note that our social walks are exclusively available to clients who have previously had one-on-one sessions with us or have attended our classes.

We play fun games to shape good behaviour!

Dogs and puppies don’t inherently possess knowledge of how to behave in our human environment. It’s our responsibility to teach them how to navigate life in our homes and interact appropriately with others.

By employing well-crafted training games, alongside clear communication and clarity, our dogs will become happy well behaved family pets and gain the ability to enjoy more freedom. They will be equipped to listen and make improved choices, even when faced with distracting environments. This approach will also enable them to master crucial skills such as coming when called, settling down, walking nicely on a lead, and polite greetings.

Beginner Level Classes

We offer the 6 week blocks as a good starting point to learn some of the basics in a fun games based way. From building confidence, to starting off your recall training and even helping to prevent jumping up. We will give you the games to practice and take home with you so you can help your puppy navigate our world in a kind and fun way.

We keep our classes small so you get more individual training.

Why enroll in a Group Class?

Our group classes provide your dog with a chance to experience new things in a  controlled, constructive environment – which is crucial to their socialisation and development.

Being able to focus while in the company of other dogs will help to instil essential skills like calmness, self-control and confidence.

Invest in your relationship ‘bank account’ – weekly classes are a great way to spend time with your dog while learning and having fun.

The importance of focus

In the real world, your dog is going to encounter distraction – which often takes the form of other dogs. By putting these encounters in a controlled setting, we can get them to pay attention, even when there’s an interesting dalmatian just a few yards away. This in turn helps to build mental focus that’ll allow them to listen to what you’re asking of them, even in chaotic situations!

continue your training journey

If you go on to join our Life Skills Classes or our Social Training Walks we will build on the skills already learned and introducing new ones. Whatever your dog’s level, we will adapt the training and aim to challenge you to the next level! 🤩 🎉
