For all puppies under the age of 20 weeks old at the start of the course. If your puppy is over 20 weeks old, please see our Adolescent Dog Life Skills classes under the Adult Dog Services tab.
Our puppy trainer in Epsom will cover all the basic life skills needed to have a well-mannered pet. The class is spent with the puppies both on and off the lead, giving them plenty of time to socialise and learn bite inhibition. We make sure you will learn the necessary ideas on how to train your puppy without keeping them on-lead even if there are distractions.
Our puppy trainer in Ewell 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.
