Puppy Foundation Course

Our Puppy Foundation Course is a seven week programme, the first week is induction week, where we cover vital information for beginning your training and is WITHOUT your pup. The course is designed to provide you with the means of socialising your puppies and to lay down a foundation for education and training whilst proving you with a working understanding of dog training methodology. On successful completion of the course your puppies will respond to you.

During the sessions, play exercises will be included to add an extra dimension to your dog’s life and in turn making training fun for both of you. We adopt humane and balanced approach to our training, using structured play and positive reinforcement during the classes.



At Best Behaviour K9, we aim to offer the very best service to our clients by accepting a maximum of 10 pups in our Puppy Foundation Course classes.  This ensures that they have every opportunity to socialise with other pups, whilst keeping the class small enough to allow owners to spend as much time as possible training their pups without them having to sit and wait their turn.

The Puppy Foundation Course is open to puppies from the age of 12 weeks to 6 months, providing they have completed their inoculations.  If your puppy is older than 6 months, they may still be eligible to join the Puppy Foundation Course, however the Rookie Course (for young dogs and beginners) may be more beneficial.

If in doubt contact us to discuss your individual needs.
