Little Paws Puppy classes are an excellent way to lay the foundations for a long and happy life with your puppy. In these group classes, your puppy will have positive experiences, learning how to focus around distractions and perform new behaviours. Classes are designed to help you teach your puppy good manners, start loose lead walking and work towards the perfect recall. Classes are run by Faye, a fully qualified and experienced trainer and behaviourist. All training is positive, using the most up-to-date knowledge and techniques with no harsh handling or intimidation. Classes are held at Talbott View Community Centre: 3, Alder park, Alder road, Poole, BH12 4AY. Classes cover: Week One – Focus (Eye contact, taking food nicely etc.) Week Two – Impulse Control (Leave it, lead walking introduction etc.) Week Three – Disengagement (Lead walking past distractions, ignoring temptations etc.) Week Four – Recall (Hand touch, starting a reflex response etc.) Week Five – Calmness (Settle, stay etc.) Week Six – Confidence (Veterinary desensitisation, environmental desensitisation etc.) Classes are structured to cover training in a way that allows your puppy to be able to achieve all tasks set. All training allows for criteria change, ensuring you are always able to make progress. During the first class, you will receive a pack with a weekly tracker booklet, leaflets containing useful information and a clicker. During week four you will also receive a whistle.
