Puppy School is a set of six puppy training classes lasting one hour. The comprehensive programme has been carefully designed to take you through all the obedience basics giving you a good foundation for life with your new puppy or for any dog training or sport you choose to do later.


The puppy training exercises gradually progress from easy to more complex, building on your puppy's understanding and reliability each week.


Only reward-based puppy training methods are used at Puppy School. Treats, toys and praise are used to encourage puppies to be well behaved. No bullying or rough handling is tolerated.


All Puppy School Tutors are trained by Gwen Bailey, internationally renowned animal behaviourist specializing in education of puppies, correct placement and assessment of rescue dogs, and the successful rehabilitation of problem dogs living in families. Gwen has a wealth of practical experience as well as an up-to-date academic knowledge of the science of animal behaviour.

Puppy School tutors are chosen for their people-skills as well as their puppy training abilities. Encouragement and praise are used to help you acquire the skills you need to train your puppy. No humiliation or shaming of owners will occur and all lessons are fun and sociable with a happy, friendly atmosphere.
