Our Puppy and Beginners Essentials course is a 6-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, the puppies/dogs remain on lead at all times to ensure it's not overwhelming for them, and it covers all the most important things needed for day to day life:

  • Response to Name / Recall
  • Loose Lead Walking
  • Sit / Down / Stay
  • Leave
  • Jumping Up
  • Husbandry training (being examined etc - great for vet visits!)


​We are also available to discuss the other most common topics of puppy/dog behaviour like toilet training and mouthing/chewing. 


​Included with the course is a pack of Feelwells training treats, weekly summary notes of each session to help you practice these new skills at home, and an end of course Certificate.


The classes are one hour a week, and all dogs must be vaccinated/titre tested to attend. 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.
