We run puppy classes for young puppies (less than 26 weeks)
Puppy training lays the foundations for a calm, well balanced dog, and finding a good puppy class is important. This is one of the most important times in your dogs life. His brain is maturing rapidly and his personality is developing.
Puppy classes are an ideal way to introduce your puppy to basic obedience and socialisation. At Paws in Progress we aim to make our puppy classes fun for both dogs and owners.
All classes are small, with a maximum of 4 or 5 puppies per class.
This means that each puppy gets individual attention and are not overwhelmed by the class. It also allows us to have some time for puppy play at the end of the class.
At the end of the 6 week training sessions we aim to have completed the APDT puppy award.
The small training classes allow us to provide a calm, safe environment for your puppy. This is the best environment to allow your puppy to learn. Puppies find it difficult to learn in a stressful environment.

- Tuesday eveningat at 5.30pm at Cotesbach Village Hall, between Lutterworth and Rugby

Some of the things we do at puppy class
Early Puppy Training and Home Visits
Early training can help to prevent problems later on – it is never too early to start training your puppy. A home puppy visit can be useful if you would like to start training before your puppy has had their final vaccinations or if you are not able to get to training classes.
Each 2 hour home visit costs £50 and covers toilet training, play, chewing and basic commands such as sit, recall.
If you want to be sure that your puppy has the best start in life then book a home visit. These visits are intended for owners who want to be sure that they start of on the right foot from the beginning with their puppy.
Training can begin before the puppy’s vaccinations are completed. Prevention is always better than cure, find out how to train your puppy right from the start.
There is also e-mail support for a month to cover any additional topics or clarify anything you may not be sure about.
Puppy training should be fun so all techniques involve reward based methods only.
Follow up sessions are available if required.
