Puppy Training

These courses have been carefully structured to give you and your family the perfect mix of training, personal support and continued guidance.

Both our 1-2-1 sessions and our classes will cover the foundations in training, help you understand how puppy learns and how to be a great teacher!

You will have personal coaching from an accredited trainer, on tap guidance and be invited to join a private facebook group of other puppy families, where you can support each other through the pupodile stages, and even hang around through the teenage years.

If you have an older puppy (over 20 weeks) who has done some basic puppy training or have completed our puppy training class/package and are preparing for the next stage in your dog’s development, then we have our improvers class.

Living with a teenager is hard work, and our classes give you and your dog additional support, while helping to reinforce the basic skills needed for adulthood.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I start training?

Training begins as soon as you bring puppy into your home.  Our puppy watches everything we do and is constantly learning!
 

Should I wait until my puppy has been vaccinated?

YES!  Our Puppy Class requires puppy to be fully vaccinated;
and
NO!  Our 1-2-1 Puppy Course can be started as soon as puppy comes home.   

The socialisation period (where your puppy learns new things and forms "opinions" on them) is limited!  Making positive associations with every day sights, sounds and smells can be done safely even before vaccinations.  Sociailisation is so much more than just meeting other dogs!

When should I book my puppy training?

It is better to book ahead for either option than wait till puppy is able to go out and about - spaces are limited and are filled on a first come basis. 

Is it too late to train my puppy if they are over 20 weeks?

Not at all!  We can tailor our puppy package to suit your puppy’s learning or if you have done some basic puppy training at home or with another trainer, we have our Improvers Class.  These classes cater for dogs up to 18 months*

*conditions apply to ensure that this is the right learning environment for your older dog.

"Avril is brilliant! She is calm, patient, she listens and makes sense. Her tips for us managing our wee whippet baby were excellent and helped right away. We are moving home and she went to the trouble of trying to find out about ongoing training for us at our request in our new city! If you need help with training- go with Avril!"
 

 

"Avril helped us have a great start with our puppy, and was a fount of useful information. She managed to engage the whole family in training him, and really helped boost our confidence. We've seen the results of our hard work in a month of 1-2-1's and have decided to carry on working with Avril to really help 'bed in' the work we've done so far. Plus, the resources have been great and easy to use, and communication has been excellent. So helpful!"
