Puppy Pre School
Get the best start for your puppy with our puppy preschool course. This course has been designed for pups under 6 months of age.
Over the 4 weeks of this course, you and your pup will learn all about how to share your home together and get you on the right track from the start.
We will teach you the basics like “sit”, “down”, “stay”, “recall”, “lead work” and “leave it” but the most important thing we will show you is how to build the bond between your family and your new pet in a safe and ethical way. Our classes will help your puppy develop into a well-mannered and social addition to the family.·
All of our course attendees will be emailed class notes and videos after each class to help with their training at home.
Our training team are experienced in all aspects of dogs training and are a fully qualified and assessed member of the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers.
We use only scientific and welfare-friendly methods of training at PDT and our team is always to help by email if you find that you are struggling with any of the training.
Dates for this course: Tuesday evenings at 7pm – August 23rd, 30th, September 6th & 13th. ****Please note there will be no class on the bank holiday Saturday, July 30th****
Please note: Group training classes are not suitable for dogs who suffer from fear issues, resource guarding, aggression or are reactive to dogs or people. These issues are much better handled in a 121 environment rather than a group class. If you feel your dog may not be comfortable in a group class situation, please email before making a booking – firstname.lastname@example.org and we can organise an alternative option for you and your dog.
What you need to bring along to class:
At Positive Dog Training, all we ask is that you bring along your dog along with their regular collar/harness and lead. Please note, we do not allow the use of slip leads, choke chains, prong/pinch collars or e collars in the centre.
We will provide any equipment needed plus lots of yummy treats. If your dog has special dietary needs please do bring along a portion of their food. We ask that you do not feed your dog for at least 2 hours before class is due to start.
