Puppy Foundation Course

This course is for baby puppies between twelve and sixteen weeks at the commencement of the course, who have preferably had both their vaccinations. It is possible for a puppy to start with just one vaccination, as long as we are aware in advance; our training room is disinfected with DEFRA approved veterinary grade disinfectant, and steam cleaned. Baby puppies start in individual puppy pens and do not mix during the initial sessions of the course.


  • Socialisation experiences

  • Building your relationship

  • Starting with handling and grooming

  • Sit, down

  • Meet and greet nicely

  • Recall

  • Starting with walking on a loose lead

  • Proprioception - linking bodies and brains

  • Food manners - around their food and around yours


The Puppy Foundation class runs on Mondays and Fridays at 7pm, and is £100 + VAT (£120) for eight sessions; we run twice a week as babies grow so quickly and there is so much to learn at this age, so the course takes four weeks (unless a bank holiday pushes us back).
