Puppy Training & Socialisation
Taking your puppy to puppy training classes gives them the best start in life. Responsible training means your puppy grows into a well behaved, welcomed and loved dog.
You are welcome to sit in on a class before bringing your puppy so you can see what’s involved.
In our Kennel Club Good Citizen Puppy Foundation classes you teach your puppy to:
- Socialise with other dogs
- Greet and socialise with people
- Come when called, even when distracted
- Play in a friendly, non-aggressive way
- Obey basic obedience commands
- Start learning to walk properly on a lead
- Show good food manners – no snatching treats
And you learn how to take care of your puppy as s/he grows.
Youngsters are welcome to learn with their dog.
Classes: Friday evening, 6.30p.m. – 7.15p.m.
Venue: Sandford Community Hall, Wareham BH20 7BD
Club Loyalty Card Scheme
We do not ask you to book a series of classes – as some organisations do. You are welcome to come along as and when you can and pre-booking is not required.
Doing it this way means that you and your dog can take the training at whatever pace suits you and your lifestyle.
However, if you do attend regularly – of course we do recommend that – then you will benefit from our Loyalty Card Scheme. At your first class you will be given your card.
Each time you pay to attend ANY of our classes your card will be stamped. The card holds 10 stamps, once filled you will be given another. You can use your completed card to ‘pay’ for any class you wish to attend (this does not include 1-to-1 sessions or special workshops).
PLUS – if you introduce a new person to any of our classes, when they have filled their FIRST card you will also get a free lesson as a ‘Thank you’ for the introduction. (This applies only to their first card, not any subsequent cards they may fill).
