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.

6 Training sessions lasting 1 hour The course content is comprehensively designed to give your puppy a good foundation of training.

Only reward-based training methods This means you will use treats, toys and praise to encourage and teach your puppies to be well-behaved and have lots of fun in the process!

Life Skills Helping your puppy to develop confidence as they grow to become good-mannered and well-behaved around people of all ages.

Small classes (max 7 pups) This ensures that each family and puppy are given appropriate 1:1 advice and guidance.

Relaxed and friendly atmosphere We encourage families with children (aged 5 and over) to join the class to learn how to interact and respond to their puppies.*

Supporting Puppy School Manual Practicing at home in 3 minute training sessions will result in a better trained puppy at the end of the 6 week course.

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

* Please note we cannot guarantee the attendance of children to help socialise your puppy, but we do encourage families with children to bring them to class to learn how to train their puppy and to interact positively with other puppies in the class.
