Why Join Our Puppy School?

Puppy high five


Your puppy will learn to comfortably socialise with people and with other puppies of a similar age, in a supervised environment that is fun and safe. Having your puppy trained in social skills will give you peace of mind when taking him or her out in public places. You’ll know that your pet will be well mannered and not aggressive toward humans or other animals.


You’ll receive all the support you need from the dedicated and enthusiastic trainers. They will answer all your puppy related questions and address any concerns you may have about your pet’s progress or behaviour. They’ll help you to increase your puppy handling skills and knowledge. If needed, Mark can offer extra one-on-one individual support, separate from puppy class.

What Age Do Puppies Go To Puppy School?

This training utilises the latest, best practice techniques and a positive reinforcement method which is most effective if puppies start their training at 8 to 14 weeks old.

If your furry friend is over the age limit for puppy school, you are welcome to book private training at your home. We can provide more personalised solutions for your older dog, or address any specific issues. Teaching an old dog new tricks may take a little more time and patience but it can be done and will benefit you and your dog. Talk to us to find out more about training your older pooch.
