PUPPY SCHOOL - Hartfield, Lingfield & Uckfield

Puppy School is a nationwide puppy socialisation and training scheme founded by internationally renowned trainer and behaviour expert Gwen Bailey.

The goal is to help owners train their puppies in the early years, to give puppies the best start in life and the best opportunity to be well behaved dogs that stay with the same family all their life.​

Gwen has written a number of books on animal behaviour and lectures in the UK and Internationally.

The course is designed to progress gradually from week to week, building on your puppy’s understanding and reliability, with learning layers starting easy and becoming more complex.

You will learn to teach your puppy to:

·         Be sociable around people of all ages* and other puppies attending class

·         Play appropriately with toys instead of biting hands and clothes

·         Walk nicely on lead without pulling

·         Handling and building confidence around real world experiences such as going to the vet and groomers

·         Greet people without jumping up

·         Recall – how to come when called

·         Gently take treats from hand

·         Accept people near to food bowls, bones and chews

·         How to settle calmly

·         To stay in position

·         Positions – Sit, Down, Stand

Classes last 1 hour and class sizes are kept small to ensure time for individual coaching. Puppy School is based on reward-based training, which means you will have lots of fun with your puppy using treats, praise and toys, whilst your puppy learns basic life skills and good behaviour.
