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.
All our puppy classes centre around positive training for puppies and young dogs.
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!
Nick will show you how to train your puppy using positive training techniques that make learning fast, fun, and motivating… for all of you!
Our Puppy Foundation class includes:-✅ Learn how to succeed through those early weeks and months living with energetic puppies - the sharp puppy teeth, the chewing, teething and toilet training etc.
Recommended by Vets and fully insured and supported by glowing testimonials.
In addition to the Foundation class, Nick offers a range of support options including a 1-to-1 home puppy visit if you don't have time for the whole class or if you prefer 1-1 training.
We also offer a Puppy SOS telephone service for when you just need advice from experts.

*Please note: By agreeing to our Terms and Conditions, you agree that should further Covid restrictions be implemented locally or nationally or any other unforeseen cirumstance that prevents us from holding in-person classes, for example; your instructor is isolating or it is deemed to be unsafe for any other reason, for example: extreme temperatures, lightning and other extreme weather events, we will provide the class live and online using Zoom.
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 the class starts each week, until every puppy is fully vaccinated. We have been doing this for 10 years at Fringford Village Hall and have never had an issue.
To minimise any potential risk even further, we would encourage you to carry your puppy from your car to the training venue until your puppy is fully vaccinated.
However the final decision must be yours.
Please do not bring a puppy to class that is unwell.
