Brace yourself for a lot of info! Our classes have been fine tuned over nine years- leading to continuously sold-out courses from word of mouth alone. Describing what we do is difficult to manage in a single paragraph . A lot goes into our classes to help you raise a well rounded puppy. In a nutshell…….it’s a 6 week course with a goody bag, puppy book, extensive training videos and online support group run by a Clinical Animal Behaviourist – for £115.00.

Read below for more info and book in with us at the bottom!

Why choose us?

  • We limit classroom numbers to four puppies, so you all get loads of coaching!
  • Overseen by Roz, a behaviourist with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour, supported by our trainers Amanda & Jane and assisted by Mutty team members.
  • Held at our own training center in Bedminster (BS3). Kitted out with pups in mind; no slippery floors and your pup’s own safe training space.

What you get for your money:

  • A puppy training manual with written instructions and video tutorials.
  • A goodie bag with a lead, treats, puppy safe chews and lickimat.
  • Access to our Body Language, from Head to Tail and Understanding Dogs Webinars.
  • Access to our training support group on Facebook where you get unlimited access to the majority of our handouts.
  • A personalised report at the end of the course detailing key points to work on or remember.
  • £15.00 off 1-2-1 training sessions or our amazing puppy training and socialisation packages, which you can view here.
  • Invitation to join our ongoing group sessions for existing clients, working on foundation behaviours in a group no larger than three.

Other key points:

  • Minimum age for pups to start the first practical online class is 8.5 weeks, which gives them time to settle in to their new homes.
  • Your puppy needs to have at least one vaccination before attending the classroom sessions.
    They do not need to wait until they have had two vaccinations. It’s crucial we build up their experiences carefully before then.
    This vaccination protocol is in line with WSAVA guidance and mirrors that of Lincoln University, one of the top establishments for canine behaviour and welfare education in the UK.

During lockdown we noticed our online classes produced a superior standard of training to normal. This isn’t suprising, training should always start in a low distraction environment! So, we modified our course to create the perfect format. The online class lets you practise in a low-pressure environment (your home) and gives young pups the time to settle and bond with you– without being overwhelmed by somewhere new. Once in the classroom, all pups will have a foundation of learning in place that will set them up to succeed. Don’t worry about your pup missing out on socialisation. Rushing this in a new environment can lead to negative experiences. A slight delay in classroom sessions helps younger, smaller or more shy pups to cope more while highly social puppies have had two weeks of training in a low-distraction environment, helping them focus on their owners once in the classroom. It’s a win-win for all.

    I can’t recommend Roz’s puppy training enough. She has very small groups so can match her advice to each breed and puppy personality … and owners expertise! No question is too small and her relaxed approach and sense of humour make the classes fun but very informative.

    The individual support is fabulous – her advice on how to acclimatise a young puppy to become a school dog was very useful and I now have a lovely, well trained and relaxed dog working beautifully in a special school.

    The online support from the puppy booklet at our initial enquiry and Roz’s Facebook page with ongoing support with issues at any age shows the level of commitment she shows to the puppies and owners she works with.

    Roz has unlocked the language of dog for us. As first time dog owners we are starting to feel confident with all aspects of dog training for our cocker spaniel. We would definitely recommend.
