Our puppy training classes in Banstead will cover all the basic life skills needed to have a well-mannered pet. For puppies up to the age of 6 months at the start of the course, we do accept older, smaller breeds.
Please note that due to COVID restrictions, we will be adhering to social distancing of at least 2m between everyone including the dogs. Week 1 is done without puppies, so these sessions are now being held over Zoom. Weeks 2 -6 will be held in person.
We will educate you on the best way to handle all sorts of puppy problems such as play biting, chewing, stealing, and jumping up. Our classes focus on understanding how dogs learn so you can teach them polite behaviour and invaluable social skills. We will also help you understand the importance of mental stimulation, and go through the best way to toilet train your puppy.
