For Puppies 9-11 weeks (at the start of the course). 

Covid-19: Please note that our class format will be different to normal so that we can keep our clients and our staff safe. We will be practising social distancing which will mean we cannot do off-lead puppy play.  Thank you for your co-operation!

Puppy classes during the critical socialisation period 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 (9-12 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.  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) prior to their first 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,  or is 12 weeks or older, please see  the Taming the Teenage Pup course instead.

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- please read the important information in your email.

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 4 puppies in each class; however during busy periods we may 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 12 weeks or over when this course starts then have a  look at or speak with us about the Taming the Teenage Pup classes which also run in Oakford.
