Blue Dog PAWfect Puppy Foundations

  • Saturday 12 January 10am at The Winlaton Centre
  • Wednesday 23 January 6.30pm at The Winlaton Centre

Five week foundation and socialisation courses for puppies up to 19 weeks old at the start of the course. Puppies will need to have completed their course of vaccinations and been given clearance by the vet to go out and about where there are other dogs.

These sessions are structured so that puppies have lovely positive experiences without feeling overwhelmed, intimidated or fearful.  This really is a great way for you to support your puppy to grow up to be a confident and happy dog.  You'll receive individual support and guidance, a comprehensive Pawfect Puppy E-book and training notes and exercises to support your pups development week on week.

Only £55 for the course

75% of the way through the Puppy Foundations course and it has been excellent.  The approach and methodology from Karen and Phil has been outstanding.  Very friendly, funny and down to earth with a real understanding of the individual puppies.  Great stuff.  Thank you.

Andy and Poppy the Border Collie
Absolutely amazing course for puppies.  A great introduction to training, socialisation and mental stimulation.  Wow, what a difference in my little pup in just five weeks.  Trainers are outstanding with very caring and nurturing ways, encouraging owners as well as the puppies.  Thank you

We will support you to put a structure in place so that your puppy develops into a well-rounded, confident and happy dog and minimise the chance for unwanted behaviours occurring in the future.  

We can also support you to address any individual issues you are having and you will receive support and guidance tailored to your individual needs.

Karen came out and did a puppy visit when we got Pedro.  We'd never had a dog before and had no clue what we were doing.  She really helped us to make the right choices for us and Pedro.  She even called me when I was having a meltdown one day!  He also attended puppy classes and started off as shy and he's now a confident, well-behaved little puppy who loves coming to classes

Don't Just Take Our Word For It!

We had a puppy visit from Karen when he was 8 weeks old as we didn't want to encourage any bad behaviours. It was a very positive visit and he has already shown improvements only 2 days later! 

Fay and Albi the Working Cocker Spaniel
Had a visit when we first brought Pippa home.  Karen gave us some really good tips which we wouldn't of thought of ourselves.  We found it reassuring to know we were setting off on the right track! Would definitely recommend."

Mandy and Pippa the Cocker 
As we have never had a puppy before, we asked Karen to come out for a home visit.  Karen was really friendly, helpful and informative and Alfie loved her. We are looking forward to taking Alfie to the puppy classes"
