Training - Puppy Life Skills
LEVEL ONE PUPPY CLASS – Life Skills Puppy Training Class
The Life Skills puppy training classes have been developed with an emphasis on preventing common behaviour problems and helping your dog to take responsibility for being well behaved. Ideally these skills are incorporated into daily life so time spent training your dog is reduced. This will of course take consistency and commitment from you as an owner, but once the habits of interacting are established it will become a natural way of living with your dog. There are ten Life Skills listed which cover all the aspects of a dog’s life. The 6 week course will help you to understand the concepts, learn the skills and work out how to integrate them into your lifestyle. The Life Skills have been phrased from the perspective of the dog to emphasise at all times that this is what the puppy is learning to put into practice, not what we are training him to do. This course includes a class handout booklet.

The classes are kept small to ensure you get lots of support. Your puppy will get the opportunity to interact and play with other puppies, in controlled conditions.
We understand the importance of training in the environment, so we will be taking some of the classes outside in real life situations.
The classes last for six weeks. Suitable for puppies up to the age of 20 weeks. Courses start approximately four weeks apart so you never have to wait too long to secure a place.
