CLASSES NOW RUNNING AT AN INSIDE VENUE IN BRENTWOOD BAY
PUP ESSENTIALS CLASSES ON SAT AND SUN ARE FULL
WEEK NIGHT CLASS STARTING THURS 28 OCTOBER !
Woofers offers Puppy 101 for new puppy owners (details below) which is always a private one to one session. I usually do this via zoom or another video application if that's easier for you. I can come to you, but we must be able to sit outside to chat, given the current Covid situation.
I also offer Pup Essentials training classes (details below). Some clients prefer group classes because of the socialisation aspect for their dog. These are small classes with only 6 students in a class and they run for 6 weeks. We have a nice large classroom which ensures everyone can practice social distancing.
However, for an extra fee Woofers’ Pup Essentials training class can be taken as private lessons if you wish! The advantage of taking them privately is they can be taken with me at times which fit in with YOUR schedule. This also means you and your puppy are my sole focus during our lessons.
Pup Essentials classes are for dogs from 12 - 14 weeks upwards and aimed teaching your pup (or an older dog) basic obedience cues which will help your dog to become a well behaved member of the family.
How we deal with our puppy in those first few months with us can be crucial to our pup’s future development. Teaching your pup how to focus on you when asked, impulse control (wait,or stay) how to walk nicely on leash and various other basic behaviours will help your pup listen to you better and help to strengthen your relationship. All of the classes in this course are aimed at creating a closer bond with your dog.
If you adopt a dog from a rescue organisation, then it’s possible your new dog may not have had any previous training experience. These classes are suitable for older dogs with no previous training and can certainly help you and your rehomed or rescue dog with relationship building while they are settling in a new home.
If you have a young dog who is going through the "terrible teens" where they suddenly stop listening and forget any training they have previously had, then going back to basics can help you and your dog get back on track. This class can help you do just that.
After each class you will receive a handout to remind you of the exercise along with a video showing how to teach it.
PLUS you get email and phone support for 4 weeks after the classes finish.

Clients usually have a lot of questions when they are about to bring a new pup home.
"what's the first thing we should do once we are home?"
"should we use a crate or xpen?"
"what if puppy cries in the night?"
"how do I start housetraining?"
"What about socialising puppy?"
"how soon do we start training?"
"how do we manage a puppy with the children"
I can help you with all of those and more besides!
I’m offering you a one off session with me which will cover all those things you are going to need to think about before you get puppy home, and what you are going to have to deal with as soon as puppy arrives.
PLUS you get email and phone support for 4 weeks after our session.
