Love Your Paws group training classes are a fun, friendly and informal way to learn how to train your dog.
These are not traditional 'obedience' classes (in fact I really don't like the word 'obedience' when it comes to our dogs...), these are fun classes to teach your dog the skills that they need to live in our crazy human world and to build a strong bond between you and your dog. If you want your dog to walk nicely on a lead, come back to you when you call them, greet you at the door without jumping up, listen to you when you ask them to do something (Yes, really! If you teach them what it means...), settle at your feet when you're out enjoying a coffee and enjoy their life with you then read on...
Puppy classes are a great way to set you and your puppy on the right path to a fun, happy and loving future together.
We are very strange and confusing beings to our puppies. We speak ‘people’ to them and expect them to understand! Love Your paws puppy classes will teach you how to communicate with your puppy and to understand some of his confusing behaviours so that you enjoy being, playing and living together.
Our approach is fun, friendly and informal and the 5 week course covers skills such as sit, down, come and how to walk on a lead. Each week we will also chat about some of the common issues puppy owners face so that you know you’re not alone. To make the most of the course you will be set weekly challenges that will boost your training, relationship & results
Has your adorable puppy started to turn into a teenage tearaway? Don’t lose hope; it’s a phase that they all go through and continuing with training can help them come through the ‘other side’ as a confident dog who is a joy to live with.
This 5 week course is ideal for adolescent dogs to continue on their training journey or for those who missed out on puppy training and are ready to get started. We will build on the foundation skills they have already learnt, explore fun activities that can help build confidence and continue to learn how to ‘read’ our dogs so that we are able to meet all of their needs as best we can. To make the most of the course you will be set weekly challenges that will boost your training, relationship & results!
PLEASE NOTE: the next Teen Paws classes are planned for 2021. If you'd like further training for your older puppy we also offer 1-2-1 training options and our Autumn Adventures.
bespoke puppy training
A new puppy in the home brings with it lots of fun, love & laughter, but can also bring challenges that you may not have considered, or had forgotten about since you last had a puppy. Also, some of your puppies 'cute' habits, may not be so cute when he's fully grown and covered in mud!!
My 1-2-1 puppy training can start as soon as you bring your puppy home without the need to wait until he is fully vaccinated and covers all that you need to know to set you & your puppy up for success. Sessions will cover house training, crate training, wearing a collar & lead, recall, focus, not jumping up, loose lead walking and the importance of socialisation. We will also cover the puppy 'challenges' such as chewing & mouthing.
