Living in harmony with your dog

  An educational wellbeing centre for dogs 

Who runs Puppy Pre-School

Puppy Pre-School is run by Alison Garforth, Michelle Nunn and Ali Phillips.

Alison has been running my Puppy Pre-School for 12 years helping puppies to learn in a friendly environment, teaching a puppy to be part of the family can sometimes be a challenge, this is where we are hear to help you and to reassure you what is normal puppy behaviour. 

 What goes on at Puppy Pre-School

At Puppy Pre-School we are able to offer a bright, spacious area that holds lots of equipment, interactive games to enable your puppy to develop. Classes have 6-8 pups at a time which allows your little one to socialise but also learn to concentrate with distractions and work around other dogs. We do not allow free play as research has shown that puppies can learn to intimidate others which can lead to adult behavioural problems, so all socialisation is controlled.


Puppies need to be under 20 weeks of age to attend our Puppy class. We use positive reward training using food rewards, toys and praise, our puppy class is friendly and informal. You will meet other puppy owners where you can share your experiences of owning a puppy.


Puppy Pre-School runs for 6 weeks and you will work towards my Puppy Harmony Award. There is question time after every class which encourages owners to talk about any problems they might be having.

Next Puppy Pre-School space is on Monday 10th July where there is only 4 spaces available. Book now to secure your place.
