- Walking on a loose lead
- Not jumping up
Puppy behaviour advice and support includes:
- Puppy biting

Puppy Home Visits
The puppy home visit(s) allows you to address any challenges or specific issues you are having, such as house training, puppy biting and/or getting your puppy used to spending time alone, or give you a head start with your puppy's training. We will give you all the information you need to start your puppy off on the right foot! The visit will normally last an hour to an hour and a half and can be tailored to meet your individual needs. If you book onto our puppy course you will receive a 10% discount on a home visit.
Beginners: Next Course TBC. Cost £75, at The Barn.
If your dog is too old for puppy class, but has not done any training, then the Beginners class will probably suit you. This class is not suitable for dogs who are showing aggression, but if you are having problems please e-mail and we can suggest how we can help in ways other than classes.
Places available to existing customers only.
Our follow on course is for dogs and puppies who have completed our puppy or beginners course. The course will build on the exercises already learnt as well as introducing new and exciting ways to further challenge and stimulate your dog.
