PUPPY FOUNDATION COURSE

For puppies aged up to 19 weeks at the start of the course.  This is a 6-week course, each session lasting approximately one hour.

COVID UPDATE:- Due to the impending lockdown, all in-person training is currently suspended.  As such, we have reinstated our ONLINE PUPPY FOUNDATION COURSE for those people that wish to ensure their puppies have the all-important early education that they need.  Don't wait until after lockdown to start training your puppy or you will likely have all sorts of problems!  Get started now and lay the foundations at home with our support.

Our classes run at St Ambrose Halls for All in Leyland (Moss Lane, PR25 4XA).

There are 6 places available on each of our Puppy Foundation Courses to allow plenty of space between puppies and individual attention from the instructor.

Please note:- Group training classes are only suitable for puppies that can cope in a group environment.  If your puppy is barky or very nervous, group classes are not for them (they will make the problem worse).  

COVID-19 UPDATE:  We have strict social distancing measures in place which you must adhere to.  You will be notified about these measures upon booking.
