Puppy Training
The world is a very exciting place for a puppy, full of fun things to interact with. For many the excitement of being in a class of other dogs and people leaves them struggling to concentrate and learn new exercises.

At Little Dale Dogs we find puppy’s learn better in a session on their own, minimising the distractions. This also means our puppy sessions can be scheduled around you, and should you have a holiday or event booked you don’t miss a week. Simply book a time each week between 9.30 and 3pm, Monday to Friday.

Each session lasts 30 minutes. Puppies tire quickly especially when they are using their brains.

We follow the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Award. Pups under a year old who pass each area will be awarded a certificate and rosette at the end of the course.

The areas covered include:
  • Responsibility and care
  • Cleanliness and ID
  • Attentive to name
  • Play with the puppy
  • Socialisation
  • Handling and Inspection to maintain health
  • Puppy recall
  • Basic puppy positions (sit, stand and down)
  • Walking in a controlled manner
  • Stay
  • Take article away from the puppy
  • Food manners
Stay and play sessions are a chance for you to socialise your puppy in a controlled environment with known dogs under the watchful eye of an experienced member of staff. These again can be booked at a mutually convenience time between 9.30 – 3pm, Monday to Friday. These sessions also last 30 minutes.
