The Positive Puppy School offers a six week course for puppies, starting the course from 10 weeks – 20 weeks old. The holistic classes have a maximum of four puppies and we use modern, kind methods to teach real life skills for confident, happy puppies and owners. As well as essential puppy training (using positive reinforcement), you will learn how to socialise your puppy properly, (with both people and other dogs) and also how to use the environment and your dog’s natural abilities to exercise their brain and keep them stimulated.

As part of the course, you will participate in an introductory grooming session in the salon, a “vet practice” session and a class in a real-life setting to practice the skills learnt.

Classes are taken by Michele Bentley (Dip. IAZ), who is an holistic canine behaviour counsellor, groomer and canine pharmacognosist as well as a puppy class instructor. Michele trained in puppy instruction with Chirag Patel and has also learnt much from “The Puppy Lab” (School of Canine Science). Occasionally we may have additional “guest instructors” to assist.

Puppies can join once they have had their first set of injections. They must not be older than 20 weeks at the start of the course.

The course of six lessons is £75, inclusive of individual tuition and a doggy goody bag. Full payment will secure your place, as numbers are limited.

Next course :

Sunday 16th December, 11am-12pm.

Week 1. is owners only (no puppies) and is a crucial class, covering all puppy care in great detail, including food, sleeping, treats, toys, leads/collars/harnesses plus any questions or problems etc. It is the ideal opportunity to go through the information without your puppy present, so you can concentrate fully. It also means we can get cracking with your puppy the following week, without too much chat. All the family are encouraged to attend.

After the first class, you can chose to come to class on either Fridays at 11am-12pm or Sundays  at 11am-12pm. In the winter we do daytime classes so we can work outside in the paddock  as well as in the classroom.

Friday 21st December for 5 more weeks (11am-12pm)   OR

Sunday 23rd December for 5 more weeks (11am-12pm)
