Puppy Class

We run puppy classes every week on a Monday at The George Inn Bathampton or Alice Park in Larkhall,  Bath, and Wednesday at Rosemary Lodge surgery Bath Vet Group in Bath. It is an 8-week course full of fun with your puppy learning how to train your dog positively! Teaching you and your puppy invaluable life skills to form a life long happy healthy relationship! Week 1 is all about you and so there is no need to bring your puppy along- we want you to learn the best of everything so it’s best your puppy has a break on week one so you can focus- this session is online!

We have a maximum of 8 puppies in our in-person class with Sophie our qualified dog trainer, Sophie Norris our aspiring dog trainer or Heather our behaviourist. Throughout the classes you get full email support anytime you need it too, plus a dedicated group for all attendees to share their journey!

We will only accept puppies after their vaccinations and only from 10 weeks of age as a minimum. Puppies must be no more than 6 months old on week 1 of classes.
