Puppy Training

The most important thing to learn is communication between your human family and your puppy. Puppy cannot understand human language so you and your family have to learn puppy language to communicate effectively.

Telling puppy off, scolding or saying “no” is unlikely to teach puppy anything useful, in fact, it is likely to be seen by the puppy as a reward and lead to encouraging unwanted behaviours.

Learning how puppy thinks, communicates and use of positive reinforcement means that very quickly the puppy will understand what you want and start repeating desirable behaviours.

You can start teaching puppy from the 1st day it moves into your home, they are like little learning sponges, soaking up information every waking second.

Puppy Kindergarten

This course is for puppies aged between 12 weeks to 24 weeks. This is a 4-week course. The lesson duration is half an hour. The maximum number of puppies per class is 8. Puppies need to be taught and socialized from an early age. The Puppy Kindergarten course is about educating the owner and getting off to a great start. Between 6-16 weeks whilst your puppy’s brain is still developing, is the ideal time to start them (due to contagious diseases though, pups start on or after 12 weeks. (This is providing that they have had their vaccinations). studies clearly show that doing a little at this time will gain maximum benefits later on in life, reducing the incidence of antisocial behaviour. While pups are still small in stature and easy to control, it is the best time to develop a leadership role with your dog and bond with them.

Puppies are also more focused on play and investigation than adult roles, so it is easy to introduce them to obedience training and leadership rituals because they are far more accepting and less defiant/challenging.
