How do puppy classes work?

Our Puppy Power course covers everything including:

  • getting to know your puppy
  • training games and exercises
  • learning about dogs, how they learn and how they communicate
  • your puppy and socialisation
  • fun, play and focus

Fun Puppy Training in Bristol

  • Capture those early, smile producing memories with 4-6 weekly games allowing you to train manners and good behaviours.
  • These games also create small challenges for you to really accelerate your success and training skills.
  • Think outside the box - no more boring "sit Fido" training.

Worried about socialisation?

  • Even though you cant mix with others. Don't panic!
  • Each week we guide you on a special field trip with your puppy.
  • Learn how to safely socialise your unvaccinated puppy - no more waiting for those vaccinations to be complete.
  • Introduce your puppy to the world, safely and positively creating awesome experiences so you can take them anywhere.

Do you want a tired puppy?

  • Our weekly challenges are great if you have children who want to get involved.
  • We use enrichment to create separation times, allowing your puppy to settle by draining their mental and physical buckets.
  • Accelerate your puppys’ brain grow rate through problem solving, frustration tolerance and use of breed specific outlets.

Learn about Problem Prevention

  • Our weekly problem prevention games give you positive solutions to common problems; jumping up, stealing and chewing.
  • Learn how to be proactive instead of reactive to those things you don’t want your puppy to do.
  • Get the whole family being consistent.
  • Let your puppy think and make great choices for themselves.

Training Puppy Parents

  • Training you, the puppy owner, is just as important as training your puppy.
  • Learn all about how puppies learn (take a peak at the video below), methods of puppy training and all about puppy development.
  • Refine your skills through our short, fun tasks.

What people say about Puppy Power

"Absolutely brilliant!  This took me, a middle aged experienced dog owner of old and showed me new ways of breaking down modern training techniques to help my dog master all the basic skills needed to be a well behaved, sociable and relaxed dog. They helped me understand how to read the body language of my dog and identify things I could tweak in my own behaviours to help my dog progress. I can personally and highly recommend them for all things puppy"

- Abbe, Puppy Parent
