Puppy School

We proudly bring Puppy School to your local area with classes being run in central Stroud, Brimscombe, Dursley and Stone near Berkeley.

Puppy School is a comprehensive six-week course has been carefully designed to take you through all the obedience basics to give you a good foundation for life with your new puppy.

In addition to all the usual basic training, your puppy will learn important life skills such as how to accept handling from the vets and the groomers, how to greet adults and children without jumping up, as well as how to greet and socialise appropriately with other dogs in our all-important puppy
meet and greet socialisation sessions.

Classes are also kept small to allow individual attention. Your experienced Puppy School tutor will be on hand throughout the course to assist you with any puppy behaviour problems that you may have.
