Puppy Foundation Course

For puppies aged up to 19 weeks at the start of the course.  This is a 6-week course, each session lasting approximately one hour.

There are 6 or 7 places available on each of our Puppy Foundation Courses depending on the venue.

We also run our smaller PUPPY FOUNDATION PLUS COURSE for fewer puppies (a maximum of four) which is perfect if you are wanting to do that little bit more with your puppy's training, bridging the gap between one-to-one home training and group training classes.
