So You're getting a New Puppy?
Puppy Classes - Why are they so Important?
There are few things more exciting than introducing a new puppy to the household!
Ensuring that your puppy is well trained and a happy & relaxed member of your family is crucial to making the overall experience a positive one for everyone. Puppy Classes are designed especially to achieve this!
Puppies have a critical period for socialisation, which occurs between approx. 6-16 weeks of age. Puppies that do not experience adequate socialisation during this time are more likely to develop problems with social behaviour, including fear and aggression.
Puppies require a course of vaccinations and immunity is not compete until this course is finished. However, the vaccination course cannot be completed until most of the socialisation period has passed. Therefore, there needs to be a compromise between socialisation to prevent behaviour problems and isolation to prevent infections.
What makes our Puppy Classes Special?
Our classes promote positive reinforcement techniques, and we welcome (in fact we encourage!) the entire family to participate. Having a well trained and social dog will enhance your family life in the long term and we're passionate about helping to you achieve this.
The Course Includes:
6 weeks of training & personalised advice with our amazing and fully qualified dog trainer, Ceallai. Our course is slightly longer, with all 6 sessions including your puppy in class, allowing you ample time to learn in class & then practice the skills at home. This additional support will help you to get things right before graduation.
1 hour, fully immersive & in person classes with a maximum of 6-7 puppies per class, ensuring that our trainer can focus on coaching your pup's individual behaviours
Disinfection of the premises prior to classes for your puppy to learn & play in a clean & safe environment, minimising any risks to your puppy
Positive reinforcement & treats to help create a fun and happy experience for your puppy
Take home notes/homework each week to assist you in implementing the training in between classes
Graduation certificate after successfully completing the sixth lesson
A training mat to take home after completion of the course
A lot of fun and opportunities for you and your pup to make new friends!
