• Puppy Lifeskills PLUS!

  • The best of both worlds for you and your puppy!

    Early training in a strange hall environment can be stressful for young puppies at what is a very vulnerable stage in their development. It is so important that in those first few weeks puppies don't have any negative experiences or this could set up behavioural issues for later. Therefore this group course will be a mix of 3 initial online Zoom sessions followed by 2 very carefully managed face to face group sessions in a hall venue. 

    The Zoom sessions allow us to go through many important early life skills in your home which is a far less distracting and stressful environment for pup.  These sessions will be backed up with exercises, resources to read and watch and very important information that a puppy family needs to know and understand to help set a young puppy up for success from the very beginning.  This will also enable us to prepare the pup for the face to face sessions in the hall environment so that they are able to cope well in this new and distracting setting as well as in new places and situations.

    The course format will be 3 Zoom sessions and then 2 face to face group sessions to consolidate everything that has been learned. It will also include access to a private Facebook Support Group during the duration of the course.
