What are they?
You may be unsure what to expect from a puppy training class. Generally the set up is similar no matter where you attend. They are designed to teach you and your puppy the important cues and exercises which can help your puppy develop into a well-balanced dog. From my point of view, the puppy years are crucial at kick-starting your dogs out-come in life.
Topics covered in my puppy classes relate to what a puppy goes through development-wise; such as socialisation, toilet training, basic obedience and noise desensitisation. My classes also introduce puppies to basic obedience and provide good controlled socialisation with other puppies. You, the owner, will be educated on the topics mentioned above. Classes are fun and rewarding. I provide full support throughout training so you are never left in the dark.
If you have already read Rocky's story you will have built up a picture of how important it is to attend puppy classes. The life you have with your dog can either be one of tranquillity and happiness or one of stress and frustration.
Many studies show that dogs which have attended puppy training classes and obedience classes are less likely to develop problem behaviours later in life.
