Puppy / Beginner Classes

Puppy Training Classes – Start as you mean to go on! 

Puppy 1

Attending our puppy training / beginner classes gives you the perfect opportunity to introduce your puppy to new experiences, allowing socialisation in a safe, rewarding, realistic and friendly environment.

Our puppy training classes are held at Nowton Park and Rattlesden, which are both near Bury St Edmunds. See the bottom of this page for current class times and availability for beginners training. They include socialisation with dogs and people, handling, basic obedience and sometimes supervised play sessions where puppies can learn vital communication skills.

They will also learn the foundations of:-

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Come when called – Recall
  • Loose lead walking
  • No jumping up at visitors

We take great pride in setting up our new puppies and owners with the foundation training essential to live a long and happy life together.  All breeds of vaccinated puppies can attend. If your dog is a little older but has had little training this class may be suitable for you. Please ring for advice on which class is best for you and your dog.

All members of the family are welcome to attend, puppies that don’t live with children will also positively benefit from well behaved children being at class.

Remember the earlier you start the better! Puppy training as it should be – fun and rewarding for puppy and owner.
