Absolutely amazing course for puppies.  A great introduction to training, socialisation and mental stimulation.  Wow, what a difference in my little pup.  Trainers are outstanding with very caring and nurturing ways, encouraging owners as well as the puppies.  Thank you
Michelle and Bella the Pom
Bertie has just completed the happy puppy foundation course.  The classes were fun, friendly and supportive. Over the four sessions we’ve picked up lots of advice and tips from Karen and Phil. Thank you.
Jenny and Bertie the Cockerpoo
We would 100% recommend Blue Dog Canine Services. Karen and Phil are knowledgeable, approachable and adapted the sessions to suit the puppies requirements. Edie definitely seemed to enjoy each session, Karen was easily able to adapt the session to ensure Edie was getting the most out of it that she possibly could. We are hoping to continue classes with Karen and Phil in the future. Thank you!

Who is this course for?

This course is for owners who:

  • Want to give their puppy the best start in life they can

  • Want to use force free methods that work and are based on the most up to date science
  • Want to understand how they can support and guide their puppy to make good choices
  • Who want a well behaved, happy, calm and content puppy
  • Who want to have fun and make lovely memories with their puppy
  • Who want their puppy to have safe, positive and varied experiences around other people, puppies and in new environments

  • Want unmanaged puppy 'pile on' activities
  • Aren't willing to use positive reinforcment.

Worried about Zooming?

If you are worried about virtual sessions, don't be!  All you need is a small, quiet area at home, access to a laptop/tablet/smart phone, an internet connection and some treats...oh and of course your dog!

Done right, virtual classes and support can be just as effective, if not more so in some ways than 'in person' activities for all types of training and support. 

In our experience of running virtual sessions and the feedback from clients has identified the following key benefits for you and your dog:

  1. Your puppy or dog will be more relaxed in an environment in which they feel comfortable
  2. There are fewer distractions at home, and so it is often a more beneficial place for helping your puppy or dog to focus on you and respond to training
  3. Training calm behaviours and chill out activities are so much easier in a familiar environment than in a stimulating and exciting one
  4. We’d always recommend that owners start all of their foundation training at home first of all anyway.  There’s absolutely no disadvantage to training with us at home from the start and then gradually taking it out and about.
  5. Weather is not an issue so your pup and  you won't get too cold, wet or hot.  The other advantage is that classes can always go ahead regardless of the weather, so there’ll be no cancellations as with ‘in person’ sessions held outside.
  6. You can get individual coaching and feedback in real time and ask questions more easily
  7. You don't have to get dressed, pack your bag up and travel to a class -  you can even do it in your pyjamas if you want! 

So...we think virtual sessions are great!  However, we do know that the thought of doing a Zoom or another type of virtual session can be really daunting at first, and we want you to get as much out of it as possible. Check out our beginner's guide to virtual classes.


If you prefer individual support...

As an alternative, you can also book a block of 3 in person or virtual family sessions or mix and match virtual and in person sessions too!
