Guinness and I after a puppy training session
Puppy training is fun, or it should be. Puppies are like little learning sponges, soaking up information every waking minute and as they grow, so does their confidence and ability to get into trouble. However, given that puppies and dogs don’t have an area in their brain to process human speech, communication can sometimes be a problem. Not an issue if you can speak puppy, not so good if you can’t! Telling a puppy off for example isn’t likely going to get you anywhere and it certainly isn’t going to teach the puppy anything useful.
Our five 1-2-1 puppy training sessions are designed to cover all the areas of puppy development you will experience as your puppy grows. We give advice and practical hands on experience for any puppy training related problems you may encounter such as puppy crate training, toilet training, puppy biting, jumping up, sleepless nights, stealing, chewing and barking. We also cover all the things that are not covered at puppy class such as diet and how it can impact on behaviour. We show you how dogs think and learn and how to get the most out of your training in the shortest possible time, always handy for busy families. Most importantly, we tailor all your training to the puppy’s temperament and your lifestyle and show you how to learn their body language. As for socialisation, we introduce our own dogs who are very puppy friendly to teach your puppy how to behave around adult dogs and what to watch out for.
Whether this is your first puppy or you just need a bit more advice, we also offer a pre-puppy session before you bring your puppy home. We can advise on things such as what things to buy, crate set up and placement (if you’re planning on crate training), how to collect your puppy and what to expect in the first few days and nights.
And just so you’re not left holding the baby (so to speak) you have access to our free client puppy hotline where we are on hand to answer any ongoing questions.
We also provide a comprehensive training manual which will help explain any other questions you may have.
