Pawsitive Pups Training School

'Life Skills for Puppies' class - for puppies aged 8 - 16 weeks

How is Life Skill for Puppies different to other puppy classes?

Our Life Skills for Puppy classes are taught with emphasis on preventing common behaviour problems and helping your puppy to take responsibility for being well behaved. Ideally these skills are incorporated into daily life, so time spent training your puppy is reduced. Once your puppy has learnt these skills, it will become a natural way of living with your puppy.
