What else do you need to know?

Only reward based training methods are used.  Treats, toys and praise are used to encourage puppies to be well behaved.  No bullying or rough handling is tolerated.

The puppy training exercises gradually progress from easy to more complex, building on your puppy’s understanding and reliability each week.

As well as the 6 puppy classes, you can benefit from after class support via phone or email if you need it.

If you are unable to attend group classes or feel that this group environment will not be suitable for your puppy, you may want to consider one to one training, which takes place at your own home at convenient times for you.
