Project Description

Puppy Nursery

Early Years Puppy Nursery comprises a set of 7 puppy training classes lasting 1 hour each. The first is for owners only without puppies. Classes are intended to be fun and training is reward based. Nursery School costs £100 and is intended for puppies aged 12 – 24 weeks.  You will not only have an opportunity to socialise your puppy, but learn how to teach your puppy 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 Puppy Nursery 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

Courses run consecutively on the same day each week for 7 weeks.

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
