Our Puppy and Beginners Essentials course is an 8-week course for puppies and dogs starting out with their training, and it's aimed at giving you and your furry companion all the basic life skills needed to set you up for future success!


The course is limited to 6 places per class to make sure you get plenty of our time, and it covers all the most important things needed for day to day life and good puppy development:

  • Response to Name

  • Recall

  • Loose Lead Walking

  • Sit / Down / Settle 

  • Stay

  • Leave

  • Reading Body Language

  • Socialisation


​We  also discuss some of the most common issues of puppy behaviour like toilet training, jumping up and mouthing/chewing. 


​Included with the course is a pack of Feelwells training treats, supplementary videos to help you practice the new skills and behaviours at home, and an end of course Certificate.


The classes are one hour a week, and all puppies must have received at least their first vaccinations to attend.


More details on the venue location can be found on our Find Us page.
