GIVE YOUR PUPPY 

A HEAD START

Beginner Puppy Course 

A 6 week course for puppies and rescue dogs. 

In this 6 week course, you and your puppy/rescue dog will learn all you need for them to develop lifelong good manners. We cover topics such as proper puppy play, mouthing, the essential basic commands such as how to focus on you, walk on a loose lead, recall and more. Perhaps most fun of all, we allow your dogs to socialise, play and importantly build confidence. 

All training is done outside at Berkshire College of Agriculture, setting your dog up for success in the real world; so please come prepared for the outdoors! Only positive, reward-based methods are used that are proven to be effective.
