NEWLY UPDATED! Our puppy classes are small, relaxed and friendly. We work with the latest methods and continually update and improve our puppy course. 

In this five-week course we show you how to teach your pup the essential life skills your dog needs to become a contented family pet.

This starts with you and your puppy learning to communicate in a way that builds a great bond. 
There's time to talk through typical puppy problems, for the pups to socialise, and we throw in lots of games too (there are behavioural science reasons for this but all your puppy knows is... it's fun!) The emphasis is on enjoyment and success for you and your pup. 


In just five weeks HotDog's Perfect Puppy Foundations course teaches your puppy to:-


* Pay attention when you say his/her name

* Come to you when called

* Walk on a relaxed lead

* Sit and stay

* Lie down and stay 

* Greet people calmly (no jumping up!)

* Give up an object when asked

* Have fun exploring puppy agility

* Learn nosework games they'll love

and much more... including how to understand your puppy's body language, emotional states and how to avoid common problems in puppyhood.


Puppy class numbers are limited so everyone receives personal attention, so please book early. 


Courses start at regular intervals (see booking form for dates) and the five-week course £85, which includes a great free treat bag, puppy treat pack and handouts. The class is suitable for any young dog who has not received basic training but the younger they begin, the better. To ensure that your puppy can join the best course, it is advisable to enrol as soon as you get your puppy.

'I wanted to thank you for giving us a lot more confidence' - P.F, Gerrards CrossThose first few days and weeks with a new puppy are delightful and challenging in equal measure. Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could get personal support and advice on all those typical puppy issues like chewing, playbiting, house training, separation and socialisation? Well that's exactly what our Puppy Settling Session does. Puppy Settling takes place in your home where we can talk through getting it right with a new puppy from day one. In fact, we believe HotDog's Puppy Settling is so important in helping to give puppies a happy start in their new homes that we offer a 30% discount on the usual consultation fee.
