Give your puppy the best start in life by enrolling them on our seven week puppy training course. Puppies love to learn and benefit from early training. Our course focuses on building your puppy's confidence while learning the basics of training. All classes have a maximum number of 6 puppies, so early booking is recommended. Puppies are welcome to join our courses as soon as they have been vaccinated and have permission from their vet to socialise with other vaccinated dogs.
All puppies need to be under 18 weeks of age at the start of the course and are welcome to join our courses as soon as they have been vaccinated and have permission from their vet to socialise with other vaccinated dogs.
With our methods puppies learn very quickly and you achieve a lot in the 4 weeks more than you might imagine. It is intensive, you will be working continually in the hour session. This is important, puppies get bored easily and if you don't keep them working they may pick up bad behaviours in class such as barking or mouthing. As well as getting such great results we do find that 4 weeks fits unto busy schedules much better than a long course.
With our puppy course you will receive:
A 4 week course with Clever Dog Company Method licensed and insured trainer Davey Atkinson.
Modern techniques using clicker training: it’s fun, fast and effective!
Puppy Survival Guide booklet before the start of the course.
A personalised puppy pack that includes: Your own clicker, useful handouts and food samples to help you throughout the course.
Opportunity to move on to the Intermediate course and workshops.

Settle down (Useful for those pub visits)
Walking nicely on lead
Come when called
Preventing possessiveness to food/toys and encourage sharing
