Puppy Classes

Puppy 6-week Confidence Course

Our classes focus on the individual dogs and what they will need to thrive as an adult dog. A shy puppy will need a different approach compared to the over confident puppy. The working breed will need a different approach than the toy breed. We welcome them all and will work along their guardians to ensure they get the most from the class, not a ‘one size fits all approach’ but what your puppy will need to become the adult dog you dreamed of.

As a behaviourist, I see so many issues that could have been prevented and alongside our behaviour and assessment work, we will also be helping puppy owners prevent future behavioural problems.

Who can attend?

Puppies from their first vaccination to 6 months old.

Shy, bold and everything in between are all welcome and the exercises will be tailored to suit your puppies needs.

Not suitable for dogs who

display reactive or fearfully aggressive behaviour towards dogs or strangers. Please contact us to arrange a 1-2-1 session.
