With the announcement of the national 2021 lockdown, our puppy classes have to be moved online via Zoom.
OUR CLASSES WILL RESUME IN-PERSON ON SUNDAY 11TH ARPIL – THEY WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE, MASKS WILL BE REQUIRED AND WE CAN ONLY HAVE ONE HANDLER PER DOG.
We have made a new package for those signing up that will include us posting a copy of the Life Skills for Puppies book and a clicker and you will receive a code when you purchase your package that will give you two exclusive 30 minute slots in our secure field. As soon as we can do classes in-person, you will be welcome to finish off your package at the site with your fellow participants.

Our classes are open to puppies up to six months old at their first class and are open enrolment which means you can start as soon as you want. No waiting for a course to start – join as soon as we have a space; each class covers a specific real world topic, so you can learn how to give your puppy the best start in situations you face on a daily basis. It doesn’t matter when you start or what order you do the classes – each class is designed specifically to support you and your puppy to learn what you need.
OVER 7 WEEKS YOU WILL COVER:
Going to the Park
Dinner Time: Dogs and Humans
Visiting the Vets
Handling & Grooming
Friends for Coffee
Going to the Pub / Cafe
Brain Games & Being a Dog
The course lasts 7 weeks and our focus is on teaching life skills – such as self control, being calm, being able to listen and having good manners – rather than basic obedience, although you will still finish the course with a good sit / down / recall etc and the knowledge to progress them further if you wish.
The course includes a copy of the book Life Skills for Puppies, two exclusive 30 minute walks in our secure field, and a goody bag and there are no more than four puppies in each class. We try to use as much of our secure outdoor space as possible so you practice what you’re learning in the real world too.
The cost is £160 for 7 weeks including all the above (click here to purchase your Saturday 10:00am package OR click here to purchase your Sunday 10:00am package ).
If you would like to watch any of our classes before booking then that’s great – just let us know so we can set aside some time to chat to you on the day.

To make sure we fit in with current guidance we require you to:
- Only have one handler per dog, you can switch handlers throughout the course within your family.
- Masks will be required at all times when out of your car.
- Wait in the car park until called through.
- Check in with the NHS Track and Trace app on your phone
- Wash/sanitise hands at our sanitising station on arrival and departure.
- The sessions will take place in our paddocks and fields.
- Wait until you are called to leave.
- Keep your distance from others, and have no contact with other puppies in the group.
- Notify us if you are required to self isolate.
If we go into another lockdown or if you need to isolate, the classes will be available online.
