CB Dogs - Dog training and behaviour

Dog & Puppy Classes

Five Week Puppy Foundations Course - £30 per Week (£150 total)

Class Details
Dates & Availability

Five weeks of in depth puppy training support for Pups 10-24 Weeks

Our aim with the Puppy Foundations Course is to give you a safe and supportive environment to come to each week with your pup where you’ll have the expertise of our qualified staff in a friendly, non judgemental and fun environment and the chance to work on your pup’s training and behaviour as part of a small group.

Included in the Puppy Foundations Course

Weekly In Person Group Sessions 

Your group course will run in person on the same day and time each week at our East Didsbury location(M20 5PS) and lasts around 45-50 minutes each week - a chance to learn how to safely introduce your pup to other dogs, new people and other aspects of the environment whilst starting off on various useful training exercises with our expert help to guide you. We have only six pups per group with 2-3 trainers so plenty of one to one help with the training. Classes may take place indoors or outdoors depending on weather.

Weekly Online Learning Sessions, demos and a Q&A

The online learning sessions are pre-recorded and will talk you through various aspects of training and understanding your pup such as dealing with puppy biting, toilet training, advice on lead walking, recall and jumping up.  You’ll also have access to weekly Zoom Q&As run by our trainers if you have any questions on the online sessions (or you can email if you can’t make the Q&A). Q&A times & days may vary depending on demand.

Through a combination of weekly in person small group training sessions plus weekly online content we cover: Training Basics and socialisation, Puppy Biting, Toilet Training and Stealing things, Relaxing and focussing around other dogs, Sit, Lie Down & Stand,Recall Basics, Lead Walking Basics, Stay, Come Away, Jumping Up, Visitor Greetings, Table Manners, How to progress the basics and Tricks.

We advise getting started as early as your pup's vaccinations allow. Please get in touch as early as possible to give the best chance of a space being available whilst your pup is the right age for classes - 

Full course must be paid 7 days prior to your start date (£150)

Optional Add Ons and Extras

WeeklySocialisation Sessions

These sessions are charged at £20 per session if booked individually or three sessions for £45 (included in the Social Puppy, VIP and Super VIP Packages). These sessions will run outdoors - usually on a Sunday afternoon (see dates available dates at bottom of page) for 30 mins and will give you a chance to practice a combination of all the ‘learning to be around other pups’ exercises from your course, including - disengagement, paired walks, greetings and puppy play. We will decide based on the individuals in each session which exercises are appropriate for that week.

You can either book these sessions to run alongside your puppy course or to start from when your course finishes. If your main class is on a Sunday we suggest waiting until your course finishes so that we don’t overwhelm the pup with two classes in one day!

If you would like to join these please let us know at time of booking your course and we will send you available dates to choose from.

Home Visits 

A Home Visit lasts 60 minutes and costs £80. These sessions come as part of the Personalised, VIP and Super VIP Puppy packages and can only be booked if also booking on to our five week group course. A home visit is a chance to talk through specific areas of training and/or practice exercises with one of our fully qualified and experienced trainers.  We usually suggest doing at least one of these pre-course so we can help you out as early as possible - especially if your pup’s vaccinations are not complete yet or you have more specific things you need help with. Depending on where you live there may be additional travel charges - please ask.
