Our 8 week 1hr 15 min Puppy Starter Class will help you and your puppy grow in confidence and teach your puppy skills for life.

You will learn how to teach your puppy useful skills, learn how to read your puppy as an individual and have a great time doing it.
Over the 8 weeks of classes we will train in the training barn and then will transfer our skills outdoors as this is where you will need them most. 
We will go on a training walk so you can see how your walks should look and how to the use the time you are out with your puppy to do your training practice and learn how to interact with your puppy 

The subject we cover :-

  • Teach your puppy to respond to their name - This will build a fast response when they hear their name 
  • Learn communication skills - This will help both puppy and owner to understand and communicate with each other
  • Working towards getting your puppy off lead safely - We all love to see our puppy running around and playing but we also would like to be able to call them back when we need them 
  • Skills to train your puppy to sit as a default 
  • Looselead Training - Teaching our puppys to walk next to you so many senarios 
  • Confidence assort courses, searches and novel objects - This teaches us how to introduce our puppys to something new and helps to build a robust dog that can cope with and enjoy our ever changing world

My pup Harley graduated from the puppy starter class today and I couldn't be prouder! We have had such a great time for the last 8 weeks and Harley has come such a long way! Couldn't rate Tania highly enough! Her knowledge and training is fantastic and do valuable, and I can't wait to sign up for the follow on class! Thank you!

Brilliant fun, a much more relaxed relationship with my dog, Trevor and as an added extra I am fit and so is he. Tania is such a knowledgeable and inspiring trainer, thanks Tania x

I have just completed the Perfect Puppy Class with my female rough collie, Kiera. We really enjoyed the class, and found the training so informative and valuable.The fact that the training is done outside is absolutely brilliant, as this enables natural training in the every day environment with noises, and other natural distractions.I highly recommend this training class. Kiera is our 4th dog. Our other dogs attended various training classes, and this is by far, one of the best training classes. Thank you for making the course so much fun.

I took my border terrier Lucas to the Perfect Puppy Class. Lucas is our first dog and the lessons were really invaluable. The group was small which was ideal and we learned loads from Angela (who was the trainer) and Tania as well as the great chance to meet other dog owners and their puppies. I also took my daughters and mum on some sessions to help them see what Lucas and I learned. Training is on-going with Lucas but the guidance on consistency, reward based training really has served us well. Money well spent and I highly recommend Dogs First to anyone with a new puppy.
