Why choose us?

  • The only class in Bristol to limit their numbers to four puppies with two trainers present, with this ratio attendees get plenty of one on one coaching.
  • The course content is overseen by Roz, a Clinical Animal Behaviourist. Livvy and Rachel are head coaches and you can read more about them under the ‘about us’ section. 
  • We have our own training center in Bedminster (BS3) which is kitted out with pups in mind. No slippery floors, lots of enrichment and your pup’s own safe training space.
  • Attendees receive support before, during and after the course.

Our classes concentrate on the things we consider to be of utmost importance in a dog’s life: developing social and life skills, building confidence, staying safe and maintaining positive well being.

  • The minimum age for attendance is 8.5-9 weeks old. (Max age 18 weeks)
  • We follow the same guide lines as Lincoln University and accept pups on our courses a week after their first course of vaccinations. You do not need to wait for their second course of vaccinations to start. It is important that pups start gradually experiencing the world outside before 12 weeks of age. The ‘sensitive socialisation’ period is 8-16 weeks of age, but the window starts to close quickly at 12-14 weeks.
  • In class you will both learn: ‘settle’, loose leash walking, handling/husbandry, recall, waiting for doors (house and car),  drop/give, food manners, hand target/’touch’ and how to interact calmly and politely with dogs and people (including not jumping).
  • We kick off with an owner intro class where we discuss common behaviour problems, prepare you for class and answer any questions
  • Video tutorials and written notes presented in a 40 page training manual so you don’t have to memorise everything!
  • Exclusive access to our private puppy support group on facebook.
  • All attendees get a goodie bag with a lead, treats and liki mat.
  • Invitation to join up our advanced puppy class course once you have completed the foundation class.
  • 10% off 1-2-1 training sessions if you’d like to get things going before the course starts or if you require a top up once it finishes.
