Puppy Classes



The most important thing you can do in the whole of your dogs life, is to socialise it fully while it is still young. Socialising with both people and other puppies. At Bonnies we have been training puppies for more than 40 years and we specialise in this training.

A puppy grows approximately 15 times faster than we do in the first year. This means that every 3 weeks it grows one year older in human terms. Their reflexes, ability to see and focus on moving objects is many, many times faster than ours. Can you keep up with that? No wonder dogs get out of hand. Puppy classes are suitable and extremely important for puppies aged 8 to 16 weeks.

What puppies learn in these few short weeks form the basis of their adult lives, this is known as the IMPRINT period. Lots of socialising with other pups their own age. Lots of noise, scents, sounds and experiences, all under professional guidance, guarantee a sound, well-balanced adult dog when the owners are consistent, controlled and above all clear with their dog. This takes practice and effort by ALL in the family. This includes Children. We also have specific training for your kids to understand where they fit into the HUMAN Pack structure and how they can help mum and dad at home.

Education for the puppy owner is vital if the puppy is to become a well adjusted, important part of a family. Understanding why the puppy does the things he does will make life a lot easier and better for his human companions.

Areas covered at Bonnies puppy classes include toilet training, sleeping arrangements, feeding, worming, teaching home manners, teaching how children and puppies can be best socialised, and general care of the puppy. We also include Confidence building with different equipment which aid great value to the puppy becoming a confident dog.
