Giving you the building blocks for a happy, healthy dog

Why are puppy classes essential?

Puppy classes are vital for the future development of your dog.

It is important that your puppy is exposed to new experiences, sounds and smells from a young age so they can be a confident adult.

Studies show that the most critical period for your puppy to take on new learning experiences is before 12-14 weeks old as after this time fearful responses can begin to set in.

If socialisation is delayed until later, it is more likely that behavioural problems will develop as an adult.

Our puppy classes are free and open to all of our clients. They are a course of 1 hour sessions over 4 weeks and run by our Registered Veterinary Nurses.

We require your dog to have had their initial set of vaccinations at least 24 hours before the course starts.

Your puppy must be aged between 10-14 weeks for the first session.

Puppy classes topics

Little Eagles Puppy Classes cover a variety of topics including:

  • Socialisation with puppies of a similar age
  • Behavioural training sessions covering basic obedience to include positive reinforcement clicker training
  • Interactive classes on crate training
  • Tooth brushing demonstration and health and handling talk
  • Fun educational games
  • Advice on a variety of common behavioural issues i.e. Puppy biting, house training etc
  • Tour of the practice
  • Homework for the humans to include a socialisation check list and obedience training at home
  • Prize for the most progressed puppy and a goody bag for all participants!

Top tips

Depending on the breed of your puppy you may find they adapt to some situations easier than others but may need more training in certain areas….

  • Toy breeds are more prone to separation anxiety so you will need to spend more time training them to be content when left alone
  • Working breeds are very intelligent and so you will need to make sure you channel their natural instincts into fun games
  • Hounds can be independent and will follow their nose so you must work hard on getting a strong recall and focus on you when out and about
  • Terriers are natural keen hunters and so you will need to use games and toys for them to fulfil this instinct and ensure you work on  an excellent recall around distractions
