What goes on at Puppy Pre-School
All puppies love to lean new things, explore and work thing out, in my puppy classes I teach puppies to use their own natural abilities but in a fun way.
Through exploration, interactive learning and by using a wide variety of equipment puppies begin to learn about spatial awareness and how to negotiate pathways as well as building confidence to walk over different textured surfaces in my mini puppy assault course.
Classes have up to four 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 16 weeks of age when starting 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 the Puppy Harmony Award. There is question time after every class which encourages owners to talk about any problems they might be having. The first lesson is without your puppy, as this gives you the chance to meet the other puppy owners and talk about any problems you may be having. We will go through all puppy development on this lesson, then the next 5 lessons are with your puppy.
