Puppy School

Puppy School Course Information – 5 Week Course

For Puppies – Starting age must be less than 16 weeks of age

This is not your run of the mill puppy school – we are here to ensure the proper development of your puppy, not add on sell you or throw treats in with the puppies and call it socialization.  The course has been designed on the feedback from clients unhappy with what is in the marketplace, there are now a number of other businesses that copy our formats and methods as we lead the way.  The trainers are trained in Dog Behaviour and are in the field training dogs and dealing with behavioral issues with clients every day – not trained in a shop reading a book on learning it via an in store training system.  We have seen too many clients disappointed with whats on offer or given incorrect even dangerous advice in stores.   There are a maximum of only 6 puppies allowed in each class to ensure you and your dog learn what you need to, and we strongly encourage families to bring their kids to learn.

We have online videos to assist with your learning and information booklet to assist you.

Please note – these puppies are in the most formative part of their life – as such we never use any technique that is cruel, inhumane or harsh.  The course is designed to use treats to MAP in their mind specific behaviors for later in life.  Once they graduate and are old enough we don’t use treats to bribe our dogs to do basic commands and basic obedience.  We use positive rewards not food and basic obedience teaches you how to do this.
