Face-to-Face classes are back!
Although the pandemic is still causing some disrupton, Puppy School are very pleased to be back to running classes as usual again.
The vast majority of our Puppy School tutors are back running face-to-face group classes at indoor venues (sometimes outside until indoor venues open up again). However, should the pandemic cause interruption to the smooth running of a course, occasional classes are being taught online and in the comfort of your own home (your tutor will provide details on how this will work, see below).
Please note that in joining our group face-to-face Puppy School classes, we may ask you to comply with recommended Government guidelines (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing at all times). Your tutor will be able to provide you with more information on adherence to the latest guidelines at the time of booking.
To see what services your local tutor is offering, please visit our 'class locator' HERE. Your local tutor will be able to provide more information on what class format they are running. Contact us today and don't miss out on this critical time in your puppy's development.
Our Puppy School classes are normally for puppies that are 20 weeks of age or under but due to the nature of the recent lockdown, some of our tutors are now offering 'Older Puppy School' classes for those puppies between 5-12 months of age. Please contact your local tutor for more information about the specific services that they can offer you.

Puppy School Online
During pandemic lockdowns, we took our face-to-face classes and moved them online. Our excellent Puppy School tutors taught safely and remotely from home and hosted classes via an internet video portal. These online classes proved to be highly popular and effective in terms of great puppy training results. As we move forward and return to our usual class format of face-to-face group classes, we are aware that there may still be a need to host online classes safely and remotely (for example, in the case of the pandemic causing more disruption and tutors having to self-isolate). At times, and with full consultation with owners, Puppy School online classes may be offered in place of a group face-to-face class.
Your local Puppy School tutor will be able to provide you with more information about these online classes.”
What our owners say about Puppy School Online:
"My husband and I have been fortunate enough to experience both a full six weeks of the face-to-face training sessions (with a previous puppy) and the online one, both led by our Puppy School tutor. Whilst everything was brilliantly run at the face-to-face classes, I most definitely have a preference, and that is for the Puppy School Online. Because Merlin is so comfortable in our home and we can remove all distractions, he is much more engaged in the activities than he would be in a class environment.
We are able to listen better and pick up on the finer detail, which gives us the skills we need to work with Merlin during the week. Our tutor is able to take more time to explain the reasoning behind what we are doing and not just the practicalities of it. It's nice to see people face-to-face, of course, but from a learning point of view, the online classes are indispensable".
