Puppy School

spaniel-and-boxerAim

To encourage early socialisation and basic training of puppies on a reward basis.
The school's aims are to help you give your puppy the best start in life by providing information about training, worming, feeding, and showing you dosing techniques in a relaxed, non-hurried environment.

Instructors

Flo and Mark Merritt, assisted by Vicki Gee and Charlie Clarricoates (a well-known dog trainer, member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, and writer).

PuppyParty_Boxer1What Is Involved

Weekly 1-hour sessions for 6 weeks. Classes are on-going; you can join at any stage (subject to an available place). If you miss one week you can add it on at the end.

Limited to 2 people per dog (including no more than 1 child per dog), but we encourage other members of the family to come as observers so that everyone handles the puppy in the same way.

Reward-based system for dog; homework each week for you! All training aids, toys, treats, etc. are available from the practice on training evenings and during the week (our normal practice hours of 8.30am - 6.30pm).
