When your Puppy School puppy training class has finished, or if your puppy us too old to attend our Puooy School classes, you may wish to join our Puppy University classs.

Puppy University is a comprehensive training programme that has been specifically designed to improve the bond and working relationship between you and your dog, improving focus in distracting situations. Each training exercise gradually progresses from easy to more complex activities, building on your dog's understanding and reliability each week.
 
 
The following exercises are taught at Puppy University: 
 
• Checking in
• Building up a Retrieve
• Verbal markers
• Life Rewards
• Weekly Tricks!
• Developing 'Leave'
• Distance cues
• Developing Loose lead walking
• Developing ‘Stays’
• Manners through gateways and doorways  
 
The recommended age for puppies attending Puppy University classes is five months old (or as soon as your puppy has finished our Puppy School course or equivalent). 
 
Puppy University is also suitable for those owners and dogs who have not attend Puppy School but who have already secured a basic level of training.
 
To discuss whether this course would be suitable for your puppy or dog, please get in touch with your Puppy University Tutor direct who will be able to advise you.
