For all puppies under the age of 20 weeks at the start of the course.  For smaller breeds, we will accept older puppies too.  Otherwise, please see our Adolescent Dog Life Skills classes under the Adult Dog Services tab - perfect for larger puppies and older dogs from 20 weeks and onwards. 

Our Epsom and Ewell puppy life skills classes incorporate teaching essential life skills through fun games and science based training.  The first week of class is done without puppies present, so because of COVID, these are now being held over Zoom.  In this lesson, we will get you all on the right path when it comes to toilet training, how to deal with playbiting, crate training, how your children can safely interact with your puppy, how to play with your puppy, how to reward your puppy and lots more!! You can also ask any questions about any other puppy 'problems' you may be having.

From the second week, the training starts with your puppy at our venue and will cover the following:

- Teaching your puppy his name and how to call him away from anything to come back to you
- How to keep your puppy's focus when out on a walk
- Being calm and settled on a mat or in his bed
- Lots of recall games - that's for getting your dog to come back to you
- How to get your puppy walking nicely on a lead...without them pulling you or vice versa!
- Teaching dogs manners around people....so teaching them to keep all four feet on the floor when greeting humans, and not jumping up
- Self-control games around food and other items
- Dropping things they have picked up....puppies like to put everything in their mouth! 
- How to keep your puppy mentally stimulated at home by keeping their busy minds occupied....rather than them making up their own fun and digging up the garden, or stealing the laundry!


Before the class starts, you will receive a training pack via email which will have everything that we will be teaching, but we do encourage you to also bring a pen and notepad to make further notes.  There will also be a dedicated Whatsapp group set up for your class where you can ask questions throughout the course.  

There are a maximum of 6 puppies on each class.


Our Saturday and Sunday puppy classes take place at Nonsuch Scout Hall, Bluegates, Ewell, Surrey, KT17 2SA.  Training takes place both indoors and outside.
