    Course instructors: Richard and Molly Grant.

    Training will take place at outside at our training facility in Burbage, ensuring all puppies and their people plenty of space to enjoy the training in a safe environment.

    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.

    Training philosophy.
    It is my aim to guide all those that attend towards having an educated and happy puppy, by using positive re-enforcement and praising the puppy for responding in the right way. I do not believe in compelling a puppy to do something. A puppy will react far more readily and with a huge amount of eagerness, if it knows that there is going to be a positive result for it, such as food/treat, plus voice, eye and hand contact praise, ideally all of these. This philosophy applies whether I am working with you and your puppy on an individual basis, or in a course with others and their puppies.
    Method.
    Training is based on reward and praise methods. This lays the foundation for a lifelong, mutually gratifying, trusting and loving relationship.

    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, "leave it" and recall, the most important command of all, including how to successfully introduce and use a whistle as a recall aid.

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

    For information regarding house/crate training, daily routine and other new puppy challenges, please look at the "FAQ's" section on the home page.

    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.

    Combined puppy home visit and course, £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 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).

    There are currently 6 places available.
