We run a small puppy class for young pups up to the age of six months, where we focus on socialising and introducing the basics such as being able to read understand your dogs body language, manners, sits, downs and informal fun recalls etc.
All G.S.D. puppies are welcome to join in once they are fully vaccinated.
Puppy classes start at 09:45am on Sunday mornings and last for 45 minutes, after this you are more than welcome to go for a coffee with your pup in our private function room. This gets the pups used to settling down in a room where there is quite a bit of activity. If this is too much for your puppy to start with, we also have an outside benched and lawned area to relax in. It is a great time to mix with other members and find out more about the club. The function room is open from from 11.30am which gives you time to have a go on the optional puppy agility after your class has finished.
To progress out of this class you will need to pass the Puppy Steps Certificate They are basic exercises that you would need in real life, more information can be found on the Puppy Steps Certificate page.
Weather permitting we can also set up a puppy agility course with jumps and dog-walks flat on the floor, there is nothing high enough to damage young limbs. This teaches your puppy to walk on different surfaces and builds confidence so the can walk across bridges and go through tunnels without fear. Great for those long country side walks.
