PUPPY SOCIALISATION & TRAINING COURSE

Help ensure your puppy grows up happy & full of confidence!

Emma's puppy courses are the talk of the town! She is well respected by many Veterinary Practices within the area & she has outstanding reviews from clients who have attended her classes either in person or online.

 

Come along to Emma's classes, have fun & learn how to socialise your puppy correctly & safely with a Professional Trainer, Accredited Behaviourist & Registered Vet Nurse.

 

Learn how to train your puppy using only kind, fair & effective methods using the clicker to help enable you to develop a strong bond & a solid lifelong partnership. Training is all about having fun for both dogs and their owners! 

 

Puppies thoroughly enjoy learning! A dogs critical learning age is before 16 weeks of age & their social window closes quickly between 12-14 weeks, so the more you teach them at a young age, the better!

 

It is imperative that dogs are taught in a relaxed and stress-free environment. Classes are small & only have a maximum of 5 dogs which helps ensure you receive the best tuition.

 

The classes are held outdoors in a secure space as Emma feels puppies learn so much better in an outdoor natural environment rather than being in an indoor training hall.  

 

Emma trained virtually during lockdown which she found to be a massive, positive, learning experience. Puppies were so relaxed within the comfort of their own home they were able to gather information extremely quickly. She was so impressed with the way puppies learn virtually, she has now incorporated virtual consultations within her puppy programmes to ensure your puppy is fully prepared before attending your group course & that you & your dog receive the ultimate learning experience.

 

All puppies under 20 weeks of age who are fit and well & have started their vaccination programme (& are able to go out on street walks), can join Competent Canines puppy socialisation and training course.

 

Courses take place in Oldland Common, Keynsham & Kingswood, generally on a Saturday & Sunday morning with some weekday classes available.
