Class run by a qualified Behavioural Trainer

Do you have a juvenile/adolescent pup?

Our training course addresses behavioural challenges specific to this age group.

Dogs go through a developmental spurt at 5-12 months of age with hormonal and behavioural changes. No wonder that a lot of pet parents find it challenging to deal with their “teenage” pups! 

Cute puppies grow bigger, they seem to forget the previously learned cues. They can become more jumpy and mouthy – not to mention pulling on the lead!

Even if you’ve been to Puppy School, it is useful to attend older pup classes to continue building on those foundations and tackle the new challenges.
