Puppy classes in September

05 July 2016

Puppy classes are booking up for September’s 4 week course starting on Wednesday September 7th at 12.30pm.Kitson Hall Barnes.

These classes are suitable for puppies after first vaccination up to 18 weeks old. If your puppy has just had his first vaccination on this date it if fine to bring him to class as he will be with other vaccinated puppies.

These classes differ to the classes offered at vets which tend to be held in small waiting rooms and have a lot of useful advice but not so much practical training.
Our classes are held in a large hall and restricted to 8/9 puppies max so there will be a lot of space between each dog. We do this to minimise frustration and/or anxiety in these very young dogs. Our 4 week course gets you training your puppy straight away and we are very content rich! You will be left with tools to carry on with your training but our classes are so effective and fun we have a lot of people sign up for the follow on Puppy 2 course.

Puppy 2 course in September has been fully booked since July!

If you would like any questions answered do get in touch. I will be very happy to help.

Hi Karen, thanks for all your amazing advice and help with Shady! Such a shame I won’t be doing the next stage of puppy training. I will continue with the clicker training with Shady as it’s so amazing and effective.
Many thanks
