Puppy School

Puppy School is a national course designed specifically for young puppies. 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 £95 (plus £2 booking fee). Please email to book or use the link at the bottom of this page (scroll down to class details for start dates at each venue).

During the pandemic, Puppy School have developed an excellent online course. We are currently using this course when lockdown conditions mean we are not allowed to run indoor classes. 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. In addition to the online course, we have additional socialisation content, weekly online Q&A sessions and will offer face to face meet ups for each class group as soon as we are able (these are held outdoors at our Henton venue). We are maintaining some covid procedures in order to reduce the chance of the whole group needing to test/self isolate. These include; individual training zones, masks on entry/exit/close work and hygiene measures.

Would you like a 121 session before your course starts?

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.

Prefer to Home School?

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.

What our clients say…

 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. 

Sophie Hearnden

 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 Newson

 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 

Annette Garman

 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. 

Louise & Chris Full with Bella

 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! 

Gemma & Lucy Vinall with Milo

 A fun learning experience for my puppy, he has turned into a very well-mannered dog thanks to the help of the puppy classes 

Emily Pearce

 Very good introduction to obedience for Emerson, but excellent learning for us on how to teach him. 

Ashley

 Jenny is very good. Has been much help to me and Rio 

June Goff

 Thank you so much for coming today. We are really impressed with your ideas and we can see Bella is already responding. 

Jane Green

 Jenny's dog training classes were excellent. Her clear and calm approach worked well with our excitable puppy
