Week 1

Introductory Sessions

For the first week, we host an informative session at Pampered Pets Therapy Room without your puppy, where we engage in a comprehensive 1½ to 2-hour discussion.

This includes understanding canine learning, interpreting dog body language and emotions, and addressing why dogs may exhibit unwanted behaviour. We also explore strategies to guide your pup into making the right choices.

Week 2-7

Session Overview

From the second class onwards, bring your pup along! Each of these classes lasts 70 minutes. We structure the sessions to include phased learning and games, interspersed with tug play sessions.

These play breaks allow your dog some leisure time to relax and enjoy, before returning to the learning tasks. The balanced mix of play and learning ensures your pup finds the training sessions enjoyable and enriching.
