For Puppies 9-12 weeks (at the age of starting).
Puppy classes during the critical socialisation period (before 12 weeks of age or go to Clever puppy training) are vital for healthy development of a puppy. Don’t leave it until your puppy or dog has problems; by then it can be too late. You will never again get such an important period of time in your dogs life; you have approximately 6 weeks to make the most of it (10-12 weeks is ideal). Puppy classes are like the foundations of a house; build them properly and you will prevent problems later on. If problems arise over time then it is much easier to fix a puppy who has strong foundations. Well run puppy classes should develop social skills (not just play but a good balance of appropriate social behaviour). They are critical for developing bite inhibition, confidence, basic training and trust. We will cover health care, handling & puppy problems. Foundation training is covered but there are a lot of important things to cover in puppy classes so most training commands come later (you can teach an old dog new tricks, but you cannot get the same benefits of socialisation after 16 weeks of age).
Your puppy must have been in its home for 10 days or more & isolated from public places (an essential quarantine period for the safety of your puppy and others in the class). Puppies must have had at least their first vaccination & be up to date & current with vaccinations. If your puppy is fully vaccinated and able to go out in public please see Clever puppy training / Taming the Teenage Pup
The location is 1537 Thomas Road in Oakford (near the corner of Nicholson Road). Each class runs for 40 minutes. Details are emailed through after booking.
Included in the price is a comprehensive puppy booklet (written by Sarah of Clever Creatures) to help reduce and prevent puppy problems. You will also receive a free lead.
The price includes 4 classes. We have a maximum of 6 puppies in each class; however during busy periods we will run a larger class (divided up) with 2 trainers. The class runs at 8am on Saturdays for 4 consecutive weeks (unless another class structure is prior arranged). Each class runs for 40 minutes. Full details will be emailed to you after booking. We generally allow 1-2 new bookings for each week.
The classes are held on a private property in Oakford where only vaccinated dog and puppies are allowed to attend.
If your puppy is over 12 weeks when this course starts then have a look at or speak with us about the Clever Puppy Training which runs in Oakford.
