PUPPY CLASS

Our puppy preschool will teach your new family member about basic obedience as well as promoting safe and healthy socialisation so that your pup learns to be a polite canine citizen.  

Classes run for 4 weeks, every Saturday morning 9-10am

Next course starts 29th February 2020

Saturday mornings @ 9am

Week 1

We kick start week 1 with place/mat training, whilst we talk about health and well being. This includes vaccinations, flea, tick and worming treatments, desexing etc.  We will then have a group Q&A session to talk about many of the common behaviour problems, such as, house training, barking, jumping and any other problems you might be facing. Lastly we will run through marker training and its benefits.

 

 

Week 2

We will recap on marker training and move on to show you how to shape behaviours, this is a great way to learn some smart tricks as well as providing some mental stimulation for your pups. During week 2 we will also discuss how to expose your pups to novel and sometimes scary items, such as umbrellas, balloons, strollers, bells, fans etc. We will then bring these items out to practise and problem solve different reactions that may occur.

Week 3

During the first half of this week's class and after a class demo of what you have learnt so far, we will show you how to use food to lure your dog into the sit, drop and stand positions, followed by some leash skills and recall (come when called).  After lots of class practise we will look at having some social time with puppies and talk you through appropriate play.  

Week 4

​Now's the time to showcase everything you have learned and graduate from Puppy School.  Pups will be photographed with their graduation certificates and given a small doggy bag of goodies.  After the excitement of graduation, we will give you a quick introduction to Nose Work and get pups sniffing for treats.  Finally we will talk through future training options and class will be dismissed.
