Puppy Classes

At Puppy Poppins we offer a Foundation Class covering socialisation and life skills and an Advanced Class for those who have already done some training with their pups. Each puppy training course consists of six 45 min sessions spread across six weeks for the total course fee of £80. Each owner also receives a folder with hand outs as well as a free clicker.

We want you and your puppy to be happy and relaxed during our classes and have fun with the training so we limit attendance to 6 dogs per course.

Unfortunately we are not currently offering puppy classes or private training sessions because our trainer is on maternity leave but we’ll be back in the new year! Many thanks to all our customers for their continued support!
