    Time: 6.30-7.30pm

    Location: Easton Royal village hall, Easton Royal, SN9 5LS


    4 week socialisation and obedience training course for puppies 10-26 weeks old.

    Course instructors: Richard & Molly Grant.  

    This course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to train, learn, stimulate your puppy mentally, emotionally and physically and to have some fun together.

    Puppy course; £80 per puppy, includes 4 weeks puppy training, help, individual question time/advice before or after each training session, comprehensive weekly email feedback,  plus puppy health care and development information.

    Puppy course and home visit, £170. In addition to the training course, I do provide a home visit service. This can be before, during or within 3 months of the end of the course attended, (to qualify for the combined price discount). The home visit lasts for about an hour and allows for the resolution/improvement of challenges that can sometimes occur with a new puppy such as: puppy nipping - chewing - house and crate training - feeding, diet etc - helping your puppy to settle in to its new home - children at home with a new puppy. (If applicable).

    Training philosophy. It is my aim to guide all those that attend towards having an educated and happy puppy, by using positive re-enforcement, praise and reward methods.  I do not believe in compelling a puppy to do something.

    During the course attendees will learn how to teach their puppies fundamental skills, including verbal and visual signals for “sit” and “down”; a proper technique for lead-walking and recall, the most important exercise of all, including how to successfully introduce and use a whistle as a recall aid. Plus other useful exercises and skills and fun games. 

    We also cover; health issues; house/crate training, methods to reduce biting, stranger anxiety, fun and stimulating games, pass the puppy and much more.

    Who can attend? I encourage all those involved with your puppy, family, friends, etc to attend and join in with the training. The minimum age to be the primary trainer within the course environment is 14 years; however, an adult must accompany them. There are plenty of opportunities for children under this age to participate during certain parts of the evening, under the direct supervision of their parent or guardian.
