A passion for reward based methods

  • Banner Image 2

In the Puppy School family, we all share a similar ethos - all are dedicated to making puppy's and their owners lives better through the distribution of reward-based training methods.

Many of our Puppy School tutors are dog training professionals when they join us, with thriving careers as dog walkers, groomers, vet nurses or behaviourists. Others however come to us from doing a totally unrelated day job – we have teachers, accountants, personal assistants and managing directors running classes under the Puppy School franchise.  This gives us an unparalled diverse resource of knowledge that we share through forums, meetings and continued professional development courses.

 

Animal Behaviour Knowledge

As well as up-to-date knowledge of the science of animal training, it is also important for our tutors to be well trained in all aspects of puppy behaviour.  This allows them to help owners to raise a happy and well adjusted puppy.  To this end, full behaviour training is provided to our Puppy School tutors by experienced in-house Clinical Animal Behaviourists.

What Clients say
about Puppy School

  • “Very informative, very friendly environment. Cat put me and Betty as ease right away and she was extremely approachable if I had any concerns or queries. ”
    —   Ross
  • “We attended puppy school with our American bully puppy coco, we had already had a terrible experience with another school who made us feel tidally uncomfortable and unwelcome with our puppy. Puppy school Hollywood could not have been more different, Sarah was a fantastic tutor and a real supporter of Coco, encouraging us when the muzzle made exercises that bit more tricky and thinking up modifications so Coco was never left out. We were introduced to the class and the explanation of why Coco was wearing a muzzle was done in a way that we didn’t feel in any way uncomfortable and the other puppy parents were reassured. Thank you so much for giving our very restricted puppy the opportunity to be ‘normal’, I can’t articulate what an impact it had.”

  • “Caroline was lovely, clearly knowledgeable, very approachable and patient.”

  • “Celia clearly has many years of puppy and dog training, handling and behaviour experience. I would definitely recommend her puppy classes to everyone as she covers quite a range of skills, in a relatively small group, which ensures that every participant is given equal time to learn and practice new skills.”

  • “Great experience. I’ve been to dog training classes in the past and the instructors can be very “it’s your fault”, “you’re doing it wrong” to the owners, however, Eleanor was very patient, kind, and explained things in a helpful way rather than making you feel like you were at fault. Loved these classes. Rum loved them too!”
