Do you have a new puppy?

We’re passionate about all things canine. Giving you puppy the right start in life is vital to their long term health and happiness and to ensure they are well behaved into adulthood. That’s why we run Puppy Workshop classes under the guidelines of the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Training Scheme.

Many of the behavioural problems seen in dogs relate back to formative experiences from when they are young that can occur without owners even being aware of them. We are keen, therefore to extend our knowledge to our clients with new puppies and offer the basic principles of puppy training, socialisation and the dog’s place in the family.

Following these classes, more advanced Bronze, Silver, and Gold puppy classes are run by Kennel Club registered trainer, Nigel Woodall who is knowledgeable in all things puppy training related! In addition to this, he is a Kennel Club Examiner and has worked to correct canine behavioural problems in all areas, with much success.

What can you expect from the puppy workshop?

Owners don’t need to bring anything apart from their puppy, lead and some treats. Additional treats are provided plus the use of equipment such as long leads when doing recall exercises.
During the workshop a Kennel Club registered trainer covers the following:
  • lead walking
  • meet and greet
  • sit
  • down
  • food manners
  • toilet training
  • addresses common questions (individual to each class) such as how do I stop my puppy jumping/biting, how do I introduce crate training

There is around half an hour put aside to discuss clinical aspects such as:

  • How to brush their teeth
  • how to examine your pet and what is normal?
  • what food and how much?
  • why vaccinate? what against? how is it done?
  • what parasites should owners be concerned about? How are they prevented?
The purpose of the classes are to introduce puppies and their owners to basic training in a safe, controlled environment with limited class size. This allows more bespoke training tailored to the participants.

What participants said about our Puppy Workshop

I asked Nigel to meet Toby, my spaniel, after he chased a cat onto the main road. I was unable to get him to come when called and worried what harm he would come to whilst off the lead. Nigel has been able to ensure he returns to my heel whenever asked and Toby enjoys his walks more since I have the confidence to let him roam without restraint. I would highly recommend his training sessions – Lucie Reese
