Puppy Beginners Class

Puppy Beginners classes are for vaccinated puppies who are aged up to 5 months of age at the beginning of the course. We teach through fun exercises and training games, and use motivational, reinforcing methods.  Each week there are brand new skills to learn, as well as building on the reliability of exercises from past weeks.  We have loads of fun, and you can expect to learn the following when you attend the course.  All pups are welcome to join the free Puppy Walk at Abington Part to put their new skills in to practice (and show off a bit!).
