Puppy School, Puppy Training, New Puppy Program

Puppy School

Classes are designed to cater for puppies from 8-12 weeks.  In these classes you will learn about puppy biting, toilet training, fund exposure games, what socialisation actually means and how you can help your pup grow into a happy and confident dog.

Behaviours such as sit, drop, stand, recalls and basics of lead walking are also taught, but please note, you can teach obedience skills to a dog of any age so our focus in on socialisation, habituation and exposure.

You will also learn about dog body language and what it means as well as some fun clicker training and safe exposure to inanimate objects and fun ways to feed your pups their meals.

We also teach a few tricks to assist in health management of your puppy by desensitising to the touch.  Our aim is to help you and your family transition your new puppy into your life in a respectful, fun and positive way.

Pups may also learn basic level behaviours such as mat, sit, drop, recalls, lead skills and fun exposure exercises (where we have time). You will also learn about behaviours dogs display and what they mean.

If you missed the full five week course, our aim for these classes is to catch you up on some niggling puppy concerns and to answer your questions to help you and your family transition your new puppy into your life in a respectful and positive way.

Kind words from some of our lovely clients!

We recently completed puppy pre-school online and found it to be excellent! The quality of the online course was great. Sharon was a patient and knowledgable teacher who gave plenty of attention to all the dogs in the class. Highly recommend!…..Ethan

Caroline and I were very thankful and grateful to have put our dog Keli through the hairy hounds puppy school program. Obviously our lessons were done through zoom but even with that we believe we definitely got our money’s worth with Keli’s training. She’s a very well behaved dog (most of the time) and the lessons and advice we learned through your classes have helped with that immensely. We feel the structure was perfect for us and can’t really think of anything that we would change besides obviously preferring to train in person.

On a personal level, you were really fun to train with and we have the utmost respect for your training style. You were always lovely with us in our class and was always there to answer any questions we had. We have highly recommended you to friends and family who have gotten or are getting dogs and will be looking to bring Keli back for super dog lessons…..Jordan and Caroline
