What age do puppies go to puppy school?

We recommended that you enrol your puppy in our puppy training course when he or she is between 8 and 15 weeks old. If your pooch is older than 16 weeks and has never been to puppy school, you still can enrol in dog training classes. Get in touch with us to find out more.

Training for dogs

Why join our puppy school?



Your puppy will learn how to socialise with humans and other puppies of the same age in a safe and playful environment.



We are personable and enthusiastic. Whilst answering all those puppy questions, we will encourage you to increase your dog skills and knowledge. If needed, we can offer one on one support outside puppy class.


Our training classes rely on using a reward-based method which helps teach puppy parents:

  • How to develop a solid, trusting relationship
  • How to reinforce good puppy manners, polite greetings and social skills
  • To support puppies mentally, emotionally and physically
  • How puppies communicate, and how to read their body language
Training for cats

Topics discussed in class:
