This program is designed for puppies between 8-12 weeks of age (at our first session). Aside from covering the basics of training, we’ll also cover appropriate socialisation for your puppy and help them learn to be wonderful members of society so you can take your pup anywhere with you. We also cover common new puppy issues like toilet/crate training, diet, exercise, health management, jumping, biting, impulse control, environment enrichment and more.

Kind words from some of our lovely clients!

We recently met Sharon from Manners For Paws seeking help with our new Labrador puppy who was taking over our house. We learned so much from Sharon during our puppy consult, things we hadn’t even considered that will help us down the track with training. Sharon was a wealth of knowledge and she shared her advice in a friendly and professional manner. Watching her work with our puppy, showing us various techniques, really helped us see what our new puppy was capable of, more than just digging up our garden ? We loved Sharon’s holistic approach to puppy raising, not just about socialisation and obedience but also feeding, exercise, mental stimulation and setting our puppy up for real life experiences like walking to collect our children from school. We are thrilled with the results so far, we are seeing a calmer puppy already who is learning to wait patiently for things and thanks to her advice, he is tuckered out after his walks and Kong toys. Would highly recommend Sharon for any training needs you may have, she’s fabulous!…..Annabelle
