@Home Puppy Course

Our Socialization sessions encompasses introducing your puppy to as many different situations as possible, in a safe environment and always in a positive, purposeful and non-threatening way. This includes various situations in the environment - different sights, sounds and circumstances as well as people, and other puppies.

All of this together with basic companion training will prepare your puppy for things that life may throw at him. We also educate the human guardians on various puppy and dog behavioural content.

What to expect:
  • Private one-on-one puppy training and behavioural education lessons from your home with you and your puppy, run by a certified puppy instructor.

  • Basic companion training - includes training recalls, loose lead walking, sit, down, stay, “leave it”, settle etc.

  • Matters such as house training, chewing, biting, jumping up, digging and more will be discussed in lessons.

  • You’ll learn about behavioral problems such as frustration tolerance, resource guarding, separation related problems and lots more.

  • Your puppy will have an opportunity to socialise with other puppies, and other people and learn good positive puppy play manners on a Saturday morning at our Socialization sessions.

  • Your puppy will be exposed to different sounds, sights and situations.

  • We will set up various confi-courses to teach your puppy how to work out difficult situations and to develop confidence.

When to start:

The course is designed for puppies younger than 16 weeks old. This is their critical period and the best time to expose a puppy to novel stimuli. Anything a puppy is faced with that he has not been exposed to during his critical period, could be a problem for him going forward.

We teach using positive reinforcement methods (lure and reward) and games based training techniques.

No punishment or forced training is tolerated.
