PERFECT PUPPY PROGRAMME

At the Will Atherton Canine Centre we believe in the power of getting things right first time with your puppy to avoid making mistakes that spiral into behavioural problems as your dog gets older. Our Perfect Puppy Programme is designed to be your step-by-step guide through puppy training. Our team can support you and your puppy through 1-1 and group class settings, whilst providing an incredible socialisation experience for your puppy as well.

If you’ve just got a new puppy and you’d like help training them read on to find out more: 

perfect puppy group class

Our Perfect Puppy Group Class is the perfect supplement to our world famous Perfect Puppy Course! It’s a 12 week long programme aimed at puppies aged 12-14 weeks old (once your puppy has been vaccinated) and it takes you and your puppy through to 6 months old. Each week we will work together on a number of obedience skills, manners drills, and socialisation exercises. It’s an incredible socialisation opportunity as well as your chance to receive hands-on help with your puppy training to ensure you get it right first time.

how it works:

You and your puppy will join us each week for a 60 minute session with a group of no more than 8 dogs. You’ll work with our expert team on a number of obedience skills such as:

  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Break
  • Heel
  • Drop
  • Leave
  • Place
  • Recall

The classes will run for 12 weeks and at the end we will assess you and your puppy where you’ll earn a certificate to demonstrate your hard work.

All participants will be required to follow the Perfect Puppy Course at home as well to join the group class.

Who It's for:

All puppy owners with dogs < 6 months old. We recommend starting as soon as possible once your puppy has had their vaccinations, usually around 12 weeks old.

perfect puppy INTENSIVE DAY training

Our Perfect Puppy Intensive Day training programme is designed to help you guarantee success with your new dog and avoid any problem behaviours from establishing or becoming embedded in the first place.

how it works:

Upon dropping off your dog at the Centre you will have a brief handover consultation with one of the team so that you can inform us of any issues you are facing with your puppy or particular areas of training where you are struggling. Your puppy will then have multiple formal training sessions with Will and his team of Head Trainers throughout the day, mixed in with structured walks, exercise and a supervised play session with role model dogs as an amazing socialisation opportunity. At the end of the day you’ll have a private, 60 minute one-to-one consultation when picking your puppy up to go over everything that we’ve done during the day, any areas we think you should work on and guidance for how to go about it to ensure maximum success for your puppy.

Who It's for:

Sutiable for all puppy owners with dogs under 9 months of age, our Perfect Puppy Intensive Day training programme aims to cover all the fundamentals of puppy training and obedience, including a full temperament assessment, alongside addressing any problem behaviours you may be struggling with such as:

  • Puppy and excessive play biting.
  • Jumping up.

  • Pulling on lead / refusing to walk.

  • Early stages of reactivity.

  • Crate training.
