Puppy School

Puppy Training Classes


We love our partnership with the highly experienced and qualified trainer Therese Cubitt, from Training the Family Dog. Therese and the trainers will help new puppy owners learn how to communicate, socialise and create a strong bond between the family and their puppy.

Dogs Per Class:

Minimum 3, Maximum 6


1 hour/week for 5 weeks


Puppies must be 7 days past their first vaccination (usually done at the breeders) to start class.

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 16 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.

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

Your puppy will also learn fundamental skills such as:

  •  Sit
  • Come when called
  • Down
  • Walking on lead
  • Tricks
  • Leave

Topics discussed in class:

  • Puppy biting, chewing
  • Toileting
  • Jumping
  • Crying
  • Digging
  • Barking
