Puppy Training Classes

Enve Canine Services (est. 2010) are an experienced, fun, friendly dog training club that trains upwards of 200 dogs and owners a week. Our popular puppy training classes aim to give you and your puppy a balanced, informative, positive, fun introduction to dog training. If this is your first step into dog ownership we can help you.

Early socialisation and training are essential although it is important not to expect too much too soon as they are puppies after all!

As well as structured exercises to introduce basic manners, lead control and recall, you and your puppy will have the opportunity to take part in supervised socialisation and play – essential for establishing your puppy’s ability to mix with other dogs. We have a large secure outdoor area where the off lead activities take place in all weathers. There are plenty of opportunities to ask our highly experienced instructors questions about common problems such as toilet training and play biting.

Puppies may have the opportunity to have a go at canine hoopers or agility at some of the venues. Although we do not allow our puppies to jump, this introduction gets them used to tunnels, contact equipment and stepping over poles on the floor. It gives their brain something different to think about and helps build the bond between you.

Puppies can start as soon as their vaccinations are complete and the vet says that they can mix with other dogs on public ground. We would encourage you to join as soon as possible after this date and we do accept mid-course starts if we are not already fully booked.
