Puppy Foundation/Basic

Our Puppy foundation/basic class is our entry level class for puppies 8 - 16 weeks old at start of class (If your puppy is over 16 weeks old, see our Puppy Intermediate Class). All classes unless otherwise stated, run for 6 sessions with 1 week's break after week 3. 
(Please note: The Vaccination infomation, Class information and the Specific location information tabs).

The socialisation period is critcially important for the behavioural health of our dogs and this class is designed to capitilise on what remains of this key develpomental period and provide the foundations of the core training skills. If your dog meets the age criteria for this class, then we highly recommend this as the best class to start your puppy's journey.

Our puppy classes centre around positive training for puppies and young dogs - with training both on and off-lead, which has remarkable results and is endorsed by the creator of puppy training, Dr. Ian Dunbar.
 
In our Puppy Foundation class your puppy will make new friends and develop self-confidence as puppy builds lifelong social skills. Watch your puppy demonstrate new behaviours and flourish in a stimulating environment while having a whole lot of fun!
 
Practical Training for Real Life
 
Because your puppy will spend much of its life on and off lead, we will over the classes teach you how to work with your puppy both ways: with a lead and without one. Our skillful and friendly trainers will show you how to train your puppy using positive training techniques that make learning fast, fun, and motivating… for all of you! Family members of all ages are always welcome in our classes.
 
Our Puppy Foundation class includes:

  • Basic Obedience – sit, down, stay, leave, come here.
  • Play Skills - Understanding and managing puppy play
  • Social Skills – with other puppies and with humans, build confidence in a variety of settings, with exercises to help prevent aggression
  • Distraction Skills –  Starts the process of learning to focus and work in a group setting
  • All Things Puppy – nipping, chewing, house training, and how to deal with these issues in a positive way

Recommended by Vets and fully insured Supported by glowing testimonials. Our classes save you time and train your puppy quicker.

Early socialisation is incredibly important for puppies’ to stand the best chance of developing into a well-rounded dog and because this window of opportunity is very small, Puppy Stars are happy to take puppies 1 week after their first injection.

This may be contrary to what you have been told by your Vet. "However Veterinarians specialising in behaviour recommend that owners take advantage of every safe opportunity to expose young puppies to the great variety of stimuli that they will experience in their lives. Enrolling in puppy classes prior to three months of age can be an excellent means of improving training, strengthening the human-animal bond, and socialising puppies in an environment where risk of illness can be minimised." AVSAB

At Puppy Stars we will take all reasonable precautions and disinfect the training area with a Veterinary disinfectant before classes start. 

We would encourage you carry puppies form your car to the training venue under your puppy is fully vacinated.

However the final decision must be yours.

Please do not bring a puppy to class that is unwell.

  • Please do not feed your dog before class.
  • Please, no slip leads or choke chains to be used in class.
  • Please keep all dogs on a lead unless an instructor tells you otherwise.
  • Please do not bring your bitch to class if she is in season (you are welcome to attend and watch).
  • Please do not bring any dog to class if it is ill. If you are unsure if you should attend class please telephone to discuss.

The Basic Puppy training course has been so helpful for our little Beagle, Lexi and the improvement since week 1 is so clear to see. We have taken all of the things that Nick has taught us and used them at home to train her as much as we can. She has developed in to a puppy who is happy around other puppies, dogs and people. On day one she hid under the chair in the training room, now she bounds up to people and other dogs! Thanks Nick. We will be booking in for the next stage when there are dates. Highly recommended.

The classes were invaluable in helping us get on the right track when we added a puppy to family life. The sessions are a great opportunity to let your puppy play with other dogs, and to get expert advice. The supporting ideas and emails are really helpful and give you a chance to practice at home.

My puppy was extremely shy at the start and it was horrible watching all the other puppies play while she cowered but by the time the weeks were up she was confident and playing with dogs 5 times her size. Brilliant atmosphere and great learning methods.
