Puppy Socialisation School

The first few months of your puppy’s life is the best time to give them a head start with vital life and social skills.

 Designed by expert trainers and dog behaviourists, our unique, five-week, socialisation programme guides puppies, from two to four months old, to develop basic manners, social and play skills, and learn basic commands.   

Our teachers help dog owners and puppies to get started on the right paw by acclimatising puppy to family life, providing fun activities that offer mental and physical stimulation, and education on puppy and dog ownership.

Personal Consultations

Explore how best to raise your puppy and to help our teachers to understand your specific needs and experience so far. These sessions can incorporate advice on a range of topics including house training, chewing, choosing the right food, feeding schedules, crate training, socializing and basic commands.

Puppy Day School

Your puppy will attend our day school for one, two or three days per week, including collection and drop off in the school bus at your home or office. Each school day includes a 30-minute one-to-one lesson to work on socialisation and basic commands.

Puppy Socialisation Lessons

Working at your puppy’s individual pace, we will gently expose your puppy to a wide range of people, environments and experiences. We make socialisation training positive for your puppy, using our expertise in dog body language and appropriate responses to avoid any possible distress. 

Basic Command Lessons

We’ll work on and basic commands like sit, come, down and wait, which are essential. We’ll work with your puppy to respond consistently to commands even in an environment where there are plenty of exciting distractions – like a dog school for example! 

School Trips

Our optional school trips provide socialisation training outside our school environment giving puppy a wider range of experiences while guided by our expert teachers. 

Snoozes

We’ll make sure puppy gets the rest breaks and sleep needed throughout the day to digest properly, grow healthily, and prevent over stimulation or exhaustion. 

Group Classes

Your puppy will spend the rest of their day enjoying play and training with our human teachers, and curated socialisation with a range of other puppies, and ‘mentor’ adult dogs, always in a class of no more than eight dogs per fully trained teacher in secure indoor and outdoor classrooms.
