Puppy training is often looked at as the easy group course to teach, however if you want to set-up a puppy for life then mistakes made at this crucial point can have a lifetime of consequences. There is so much information about puppy training out there -  But what is based on fact and what is based on opinion but treated like fact?  Should you teach puppy and owners with clickers or without? To have off lead play or not?

This course is useful for people:

  • who have a keen interest in training,
  • about to set-up puppy courses or
  • trainers already teaching puppy classes wanting a refresher course to gather different ideas.

This 5-day puppy training instructors’ course has been designed and developed to provide both theoretical and hands-on practical skills in teaching puppies and their owners.

During the 5-days you will learn how to help puppies develop socialisation skills and teach  their owners how to allow the puppy to develop appropriate skills and create a puppy-human relationship that is based on trust, confidence and empowerment.  There is also a focus on teaching puppies behaviours that are useful for daily living and help prepare then to cope with all of life’s challenges.

No matter how good you are as an animal trainer you are likely to make a minimal impact in the puppy-person relationship unless you have skills in helping owners change their behaviours too. So during the workshop we also focus and practice implementing all the training with people. 
Costs £650 per person, (included in the price.... Optional Breakfast Club training discussions from 8.30 am, accompanied by breakfast snacks.
