Puppy Life Skills is a 6 week course suitable for pups aged up to 20 weeks on the first day of the course. As well as learning all of the basic exercises that we like our dogs to know, this course will provide your pup with the skills they need to be a well-rounded & happy adult.
Our curriculum is based on cutting-edge research in puppy development from the University of Lincoln, focusing on 10 essential life skill lessons to give your pup the tools they need to cope with life.
In addition to teaching your pup these skills we will also cover exercises as: sit, leave, take, recall, walk nicely on a lead, focus & lots more, as well as covering all of the puppy problems - play biting, house training, chewing & tackling the late night zoomies!
We are fortunate enough to have 2 lovely venues, Highbury Hall in Tenterden & Pluckley Village Hall. These large halls provide plenty of space to work & both come with ample free parking directly outside & a grassy area to toilet your dog.
Our classes are kept small so you get lots of personal attention & we provide plenty of support to make sure you get the best from your learning experience.
Booking online is quick & easy - just select the service you want, the start date, fill in some basic info & pay. Then sit back & relax - you'll soon receive your confirmation email containing a handy welcome video!
