Puppy Class – First Steps starting 7th May

Have you just picked up your new puppy – or are you just about to pick up your new puppy? Congratulations!

We are starting out another 5 week block ‘๐—™๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ฆ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐˜€’ on Tuesday, 7th May at the Community hall in Whiterashes. Another block of 5 weeks is offered after this to ensure that you can start your puppy’s adolescent phase with great skills (only if enough interest).

‘First Steps’ is specifically aimed for puppies to join between 9 and 11 weeks of age which is a time of vital early development.

โ€˜๐…๐ข๐ซ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐’๐ญ๐ž๐ฉ๐ฌโ€™ is all about prevention of potential behavioral issues. You will learn how to take proactive steps which will facilitate building a trusting relationship with your puppy.

Next to short and controlled playful interactions (what is good and what is not good!) and basic training exercises (sit, down, look, recall, connected walking) we will be focusing on the following topics:

– Development periods and importance of Socialisation/Habituation/Prevention and Management

– Handling (grooming and veterinary visits)

– Separation issues/Barrier frustration

– Toilet training

– Play biting and chewing

– Jumping

– Food bowl and other potential resource guarding issues

I use only the most up to date, fair, kind and effective training-methods and aim to create a learning environment that both you and your pet will find highly reinforcing.

The classes are held at the Community Hall in Whiterashes. Class size is max 4 puppies and I only take puppies within the same age range to ensure adequate and safe socialisation. All exercises and information topics are followed up with handouts and/or videos.
