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

When and where

Teach your puppy to
sit beside you.
Perfect before teaching heel!

What classes include

Example of a class exercise:
Teaching Heel

Here is the first stage of teaching Heel:
The puppies have already learnt to sit beside their handler. Now they are learning the heel position. Starting from the sit, the handler gains and keeps attention, ensuring their dog stays beside them as they walk.
This exercise was photographed in week two of the course.

Lovely start with
puppy beside handler, and
super focus on hand holding titbit.
image
This puppy is staying in position
because the handler is
keeping their attention. Well done!

Families

We are happy for families or pairs of handlers to attend. the classes.

Where appropriate, families can help each other. At other times, we ask for one handler only with their dog, while others watch; this minimizes confusion for the puppy.

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.

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.
