Puppy Training

                         Getting your puppy off on the right start is very important.  What ever your situation and preference we have a option for you!


Pre- vaccination visits.

From the time you bring your puppy home they are learning valuable lessons about their new life with you and the rest of the world.
During the vaccination process, there are limitations on where you can take your puppy for health reasons and so it is likely that your pup may miss out on some valuable opportunities at this age.
To help put your puppy on to the right track during this time, why not book a one to one puppy visit to discuss any training worries you may have and to help you with common problems such as house training, puppy biting, leaving puppy alone and handling, and to begin some early fun basic training exercises.

Each home session will lasts for at least one hour and you can choose to have notes written and sent out to you after each session to help you practice at home with email support when you need.
