Our puppy classes are 5-week courses and focus on the foundational work to get you on the right track with your puppy from the beginning of his or her life.
These classes are for fully vaccinated puppies aged 6 months and below, allowing us to capture those early weeks of development and create a strong bond between you right from the start.
Classes are held in Bramham, near Wetherby, West Yorkshire at indoor locations (so we’re not reliant on the Great British weather holding out!).

What will you learn?
We will teach you the important skills your puppy needs to stay safe and happy, regardless of the environment. This includes basic skills such as ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘stay’, as well as how to walk politely on the lead, an impressive recall and the all important ability to focus and settle. On top of this, we will teach you to better understand your puppy’s needs and wants, so that you can communicate effectively with them and prevent unwanted behaviours developing in the future.
Support network in between classes
You will have access to a private group which will contain videos and guides to help you practice the exercises in between classes, as well as a place to discuss your progress with fellow class members.
Good to know
What happens in class?
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by our trainer, Kate, who will guide you to your individual space. This will be an area reserved just for you and your dog to help everyone feel calm and comfortable right from the start. There will never be more than six puppies in a class to make sure we can give you all the support you need. Remember, every puppy is individual and will progress at different rates so we’ll always tailor the exercises to you.
Every class will involve practical training, as well as opportunities for discussion.
At the end of each class, we will recap on the training for the week ahead and make sure you leave feeling motivated and confident. In between each class, you will have access to your private support network which will include video recaps and guides.
Who will the coach be?
You will be coached by Kate Bolland. Kate has worked with dogs for 20+ years and is passionate about helping people build the relationship with their dog that they’ve always dreamed of. Kate has completed formal training with the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and is an advocate for training methods using reward and motivation based techniques. You can read more about Kate’s approach here.
Who should come to the class?
Consistent communication is key to the success of your training so it’s important that anyone involved in the care of your puppy has the same knowledge and understanding, including children. If a member of the household can’t attend, don’t forget to point them in the direction of our training videos and guides! If there are more than two people coming, please let us know ahead of time so that we can plan the space accordingly.
What should I bring?
Your puppy’s home comforts will help them to relax in class so please bring along their bed or blanket. We will be using positive reinforcement throughout class so bring a selection of their favourite treats, as well as one or two of their favourite toys. If your puppy requires any medication or has a specialised diet, please bring this along and let your coach know ahead of class.
What happens if I can’t make a session?
Our ultimate aim is to make sure you finish the programme with the tools, techniques and confidence to move forward with your training. If you miss a session, we will do everything we can to bring you up to speed in the next class so that you don’t miss out. And you will of course have access to the exercises in between sessions in your private group.
