Project Description

Individual Puppy Care

These private classes are held on a 1:1 or on rare occasions, on a 1:2 basis and cater for puppies up to the age of 6 months. Sessions lasts 1 hour and may include going on dog walks. Private Puppy Classes cost £50 (£30 per puppy if on a 1:2 basis) and may be booked in addition to or as an alternative to attending Early Years Puppy Nursery. You may book additional sessions depending on your requirements. The sessions are held at a mutually agreed time. All sessions are held in the comfort of your home. Depending on your location, some travelling charges may be payable.

We will cover the following:

  1. Sit and lie down on command
  2. Come when called
  3. Walk on lead without pulling
  4. Accept handling (including for vets and groomers)
  5. Wait
  6. ‘Leave’ when asked
  7. Accept people near to food bowls, bones and chew
  8. Stop play biting
  9. Be sociable with humans, children, and other puppies
  10. Greet people without jumping up

The aim of Private Puppy Classes is to:

  1. Teach you HOW to train your puppy without resorting to reprimands
  2. Discover any problems in your technique and to help you be more effective
  3. Help you adhere to a regular training schedule
  4. Help you understand your puppy’s behaviours
  5. Help you create a positive bond with your dog with YOU as the master
  6. Help you understand the major causes of behavioural problems

Training venue:
At your home or at Field House, Waltham St Lawrence, RG10 0HE

6 Golden Training Tips

Obedience training is like school for children. NINE basic commands should include heel, sit, lie down, off, bed, stay, away, come, and leave it. I am not a big fan of “No” – the command is too broad and negative as opposed to a positive and specific command such as “leave it”. AND REMEMBER, different types of dog breeds learn at different rates. It’s not a race! Be patient.

  • Don’t repeat commands again and again. Teach him to sit on the command “sit”, not “sit, sit, sit”
  • Training should be undertaken when the dog is alert
  • Understand the exercise and the command you are trying to teach
  • When your dog begins to lose interest during training, praise and stop
  • Training sessions should be short and frequent
  • Practice makes perfect
