Bright Start: Talk & Play

*This course only runs in the winter months from November to February*

Join us for puppy talks and socialisation. This course is suitable for people before and after bringing home their puppy. Unlike other puppy courses, Animal Behaviour Coach clients benefit from out-of-hours messaging support which can be a real advantage with a new dog.

Those planning their puppy will have extra insight and worksheets to prepare before their puppy comes home . Puppies aged upto 6 months will have opportunities to meet other dogs and humans, and for new sensory experiences including games. Everyone will have a chance to interact with the puppies to practice new skills.

The aim of the course is to develop confident pups who want to listen to you, and to build a strong happy bond with their family. Watch the videos at the bottom of the page to get an idea for the skills you may teach your young pup. George the French Bulldog was 4  months old when these videos were made and his human is a first time dog-owner with no previous training skills. Look how much they achieve!

Attending puppies must have full vaccinations. Humans attending without a dog will also have the opportunity to interact and train puppies. You may start the course without a puppy and bring them along later eg if the course starts when they’re too young or unvaccinated.

Talks will include health, nutrition, exercise, grooming, sleep, crate training, housetraining and body language. We will discuss how dogs think and learn and teach basic obedience skills including lead walking and recall.

Relaxed atmosphere in a natural setting at Chunal, Glossop. Hot and cold drinks provided.

We hope to have guest appearances from local canine professionals!

£100 for 6 week course starting .... Spaces are limited so don't delay if you'd like to come along!
