Beginner Puppy Course - 6 weeks  


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,

Puppy Home Visit

90 min session


I also offer a private consultation at home, to discuss any individual questions you may have. This can be especially useful  before your puppy is vaccinated or before you bring your him or her home.


This will be bespoke to your puppy and focus on your particular questions. Typical sessions focus on elements such as the important at-home skills such as toilet training, crate training, mouthing, sleeping through the night, proper puppy play, as well as getting a head start with key training.
