Did you miss the chance to take your dog to puppy class and to teach them basic skills / how to work around distractions? Or have you re-homed a dog that needs to learn from scratch? Then this is the class for you!

Puppy Class (3-6m) 

Just got a new puppy? PetMind's puppy class provides a safe space for your puppy to learn skills that will help them to grow in to calm and confident adults. 

All classes are open to dogs of all sizes, but are NOT SUITABLE for dogs struggling with barking or hyperactivity around people and dogs. These behaviours are better addressed in one to one training. In class we use positive-reinforcement to help your dog with:

COMMUNICATION:
  • Look at me

  • Loose-leash walking / Close

  • Hand-targeting

CONTROL

  • Leave it

  • Recall

  • Settle 

  • Drop

  • Greeting people with feet on the floor

  • Emergency stop

CONFIDENCE

  • Understanding dog body language

  • Confidence with handling

Puppy owners will also be taught 'sit' and 'down' and will be given advice on safe and effective socialisation and prevention and management of puppy biting.
