Next Puppy School in Thorpe
Saturday 21st March 1-2pm

6 week course £90

Puppy School is a set of six puppy training classes lasting one hour. The comprehensive programme has been carefully designed to take you through all the obedience basics giving you a good foundation for life with your new puppy or for any dog training sport you choose to do later.

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

  • Accept people near to food bowls, bones and chew
  • Stop play biting
  • Socialise with an adults, children, and other puppies attending class

Please note we cannot guarantee the attendance of children to help socialise your puppy, but we do encourage families with children to bring them to class to learn how to train their puppy and to interact positively with other puppies in the class.

Reward-based puppy training

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

Is it fun?

Puppy School tutors are chosen for their people-skills as well as their puppy training abilities. Encouragement and praise are used to help you acquire the skills you need to train your puppy. No humiliation or shaming of owners will occur and all lessons are fun and sociable with a happy, friendly atmosphere.

Puppy play

Puppies will be allowed to play in carefully controlled small groups to ensure they learn good manners around other puppies, do not get scared, and do not learn to play roughly or aggressively. Puppies will be matched for size, age, and experience, and play will be carefully supervised to ensure that all puppies learn to be confident with others.

Please note that, in some classes, the mix of puppies may make it impossible to conduct puppy play sessions safely. Puppy play sessions will only be offered if they can be run without causing harm.

Behaviour advice

Throughout the course, your behaviour-trained Puppy School tutor will be on hand to help you with any behaviour problems.

Practise makes perfect

All our Puppy School clients will receive a free Puppy School manual (sponsored by as an accompaniment to our classes.

Our Puppy School Manual will allow you to read back through class sessions and to practice training at home.

Although all the information you will need to train your puppy will be given to you in class, you will need to set aside time every day to practise the exercises at home to make the most of the ideas you have been given. Training at home will allow you to progress further in class and will result in a better trained puppy at the end of the six weeks.

To help with this, our Puppy School Manual includes detailed and helpful information on what your tutor taught during each week of the course. Instructions are broken down in nice, easy, readable little exercises allowing all the family to get involved with the weekly training.

Our Puppy School Manual also includes informative information about what to expect at classes, what to bring with you each week, how to help your puppy to prepare for the car journey, details on the importance of playing and bonding with your puppy as well as information about Natures Menu, who have been creating 100% real, natural, wholesome food for pets for over thirty-five years.
