Puppy Classes

Your puppy learns obedience and good manners with people and other dogs

When and where

Puppies can settle in a sitting position ...

... or lying down

Quiet control

Between exercises, we help you keep your puppy calm. This helps you understand how to teach your puppy to settle. It also keeps the class environment peaceful, so that all can learn.

Some exercises in the second week of the course

We teach controlled play. If needed, we will teach you how to interact with fun. We show you how to teach your puppy to give up a toy on command. Play is fun, bonding, and a great reward for behavioural commands.

These puppies are learning to walk to heel. Firstly, get your puppy's attention, beside you in the correct position. Then you need attention as you walk. Sometimes a training aid, like this hollow stick, helps with small dogs (attach a treat to the end of the stick).

Watch Fudge in her puppy class:

The video shows three short sections of a puppy at a Four Paws class.

  1. Fudge Finger practices her recall – a trainer releases her as her owner calls her.
  2. The recall is used to practice coming away from a quiet, adult dog.
  3. Fudge learns to walk nicely past another puppy.

Fudge Finger graduated to our adult classes. She has passed her Bronze, Silver and Gold Kennel Club Awards. Well done to Pat.
