Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, we are running a variant of our normal Puppy Academy course. Please inquire within.
Puppy Academy focuses on those essential experiences for your puppy in its first few months of life.
This includes exposure to other puppies, exposure to lots of different people, common and uncommon sounds and all kinds of objects. This helps to build your puppy’s confidence and exposure to new experiences.
Here at ABT we also get started on some basic training skills for your puppy. Teaching them manners from an early age helps to prevent rebellion later which builds a good foundation of trust and respect for you and your puppy. We also include lots of information and assistance with all those puppy-joys such as toilet training, mouthing and teething!
During classes, puppies will be learning:
- how to give attention when asked
- to be calm
- commands such as sit and drop
- general manners
- to come when called
- leash walking skills
- Leave, wait and give
- Mat training
- How to enjoy grooming and Vet checks
- Great people and dogs nicely
- Associate with a range of different objects, surfaces, sights and sounds
For more information, please contact us.
The first week is run with no puppies present so your instructor can get to know you, and you can learn the theory behind dog training and how dogs learn without the distraction of your puppy.
