Polite Puppy Class
Polite Paws Dog Training’s “Polite Puppy” class is designed to give you and your puppy an excellent foundation for life as a polite member of society! It is a 6 week course but there are 7 classes as the first class is run online. This initial class is where we talk about all the common puppy problems you will experience and how to correctly address them. We will also discuss body language and start to teach puppies to self settle. This works so well to discuss and ask questions in a relaxing home environment without extra distractions.
The remaining 6 classes run outdoors and will cover all the basic life skills (including handling, teaching puppies to be comfortable with livestock, asking your puppy to leave and drop an item when asked, how to greet other puppies and people appropriately without jumping up, teaching them to stay and teaching the foundations of recall and loose lead walking.
Outdoor classes are limited to a maximum of 8 puppies.
Only science-based, ethical and reward based methods are used in order to not only teach puppies in the way that they truly learn (by rewarding behaviours we like so that the puppy does them again), but to also ensure that you and your puppy develop a strong and positive relationship.
Once your puppy has graduated from the Polite Puppy course, the next step is the Puppy Post-Grad course.
They are then welcome to continue training by attending the Intermediate and Advanced classes.
This course takes place on private land in Green Dene, (East Horsley)
Price includes a FREE copy of the best selling book “Puppy socialisation – What It Is and How To Do It” (RRP £22)
Puppy Post-Grad Course
In this class we progress behaviours learnt in the puppy class, work on behaviours around distractions (stay, recall, loose lead walking), work on more focus and engagement around other dogs, and also add new behaviours.
Classes are limited to 8 puppies.
Once your puppy has graduated they will be in a great position to join the Intermediate class.
These sessions are also incredibly helpful for before your puppy comes home to ensure the settling in process is as stress free as possible for both you and your puppy.
We can discuss how to prepare your home in advance, what to do for the first few nights, how to introduce your puppy to other pets or people, and discuss how to deal with common problems.
We can help you with ensuring safe and appropriate interactions between children and your new puppy.
These are running online only currently.
Cost: £65 per hour
