Puppy School is a national course designed specifically for puppies under 20 weeks old at the start of the course. This course is the perfect mixture of socialisation & training whether you want a well mannered family pet or plan to compete at any dog training sport.
Puppy School is an established network of puppy training class tutors. At these puppy training classes, only kind, effective techniques are used and puppies are 'educated' to have good manners, be friendly with adults, children and other dogs, and to respond to commands.
Puppy School puppy training classes are of the highest standard and the highly trained, professional tutors make the classes stimulating and fun for owners and puppies.
Puppy School is a set of 6 puppy training classes lasting 1 hour. The comprehensive programme has been carefully designed to take you through all the obedience basics giving you a good foundation for life with your new puppy or for any dog training sport you choose to do later. The course costs £110 (plus £2 booking fee). Please email to book or use the link at the bottom of this page.
During the pandemic, Puppy School developed an excellent online course. We will continue to use this in the event that we are not allowed to run indoor classes (fingers crossed, this is getting less likely now). This may mean some courses are fully online and some are a mix of face to face and online training. We regret that when booking classes we are unable to refund your course fee on the basis that some or all of the classes have moved online. We can also stream our classes in the event that you cannot attend due to illness etc. As we are a small company, days off have a big effect on our incomes and timetabling, we also do not want to contribute to the spread of covid. We are maintaining some covid procedures in order to reduce this possibility. These include; individual training zones, masks for close work and hygiene measures. Please do not attend classes or 121's if you test positive for covid.
Classes are held on Tuesdays in Bledlow, Thursdays in Little Marlow and Saturdays in Lane End. For course start dates, click on the link below, scroll down to the class details sections and select the venue of your choice.

Our puppy 121's are £65 for an hour long session and include a training summary via email. This gives us time to chat through any issues you may be having (e.g. nipping, housetraining or introducing your pup to existing pets). We do short sessions of training to get you started, provided the puppy is awake and interested - we explain how to best judge when to train and how much to do early on.
A set of six lessons covering the exercises learnt in Puppy School, plus exercises tailored to your puppy and life style are available at £360. Sessions are 45-60 minutes depending on how your puppy copes with training (Home School can be more intense than Puppy School as you don't have to wait your turn). If you have several 45 minute sessions, you'll get a seventh session at no extra charge.
Our fantastic partners at Natures Menu have developed some amazing treats and foods for young puppies. When you sign up to Puppy School you will now receive your manual plus discount vouchers and a pack of free treats at your first class.

Jenny has been an invaluable part of our lives since we bought our first ever puppy. The puppy and improver classes gave us the skills needed to help develop our puppy into a wonderfully rounded, sociable and fun dog to be with. Jenny's knowledge, patience and calm nature is so reassuring for us and we look forward to her classes every week as our one year old grows from strength to strength in her training - not to mention how much fun our lively dog has in her classes, she simply adores Jenny! We also use Jenny's dog sitting and walking services, which is an amazing resource to be able to call upon. Jenny is 100% trustworthy, reliable and caring - a combination that is as valuable as gold dust. Suffice to say we feel sorry for people that don't have Jenny in their lives.

Jenny is very good. Has been much help to me and Rio
Thank you so much for coming today. We are really impressed with your ideas and we can see Bella is already responding.
Thank you for the help you have given me with the training of Otto. I hope that your business goes from strength to strength as you are an excellent teacher.
Very good introduction to obedience for Emerson, but excellent learning for us on how to teach him.
Jenny has been great training Jack & Jill, from day one I have seen improvements and they are a joy to live with; I have never had such well trained dogs. Jenny has been really patient and has helped me find ways to train the puppies around my commitments, even taking them for intensive training when I have been busy studying. Two puppies at once may not have been the best idea, but Jenny has helped me make it work and I wouldn't trade them for the world
Jenny came to meet our puppy Milo as he was scared of other dogs and displaying signs of separation anxiety. Jenny spent an hour with us, and gave us some tips of how to help Milo work things out. Namely, introduced tasty treats, of cheese and chicken/ ham pieces, playing "find it", and distracting him when other dogs are approaching, and so on. We followed Jenny's advice to the letter, and he is now doing brilliantly! He looks at other dogs, and greets appropriately, then looks to me for a treat, knowing he has done well!

A fun learning experience for my puppy, he has turned into a very well-mannered dog thanks to the help of the puppy classes
Jenny's improver classes were fantastic for my lively rescue dog, Sam. Her patience and understanding with both of us, and innovative approaches to his behavioural issues have been invaluable. Sam is now a much calmer, happier dog who adores Jenny!
Jenny's dog training classes were excellent. Her clear and calm approach worked well with our excitable puppy
