CAN I REALLY TRAIN MY PUP ONLINE?
Traditional puppy schools are fantastic for socialisation, but there’s little opportunity for learning with all that fun and chaos of multiple pups in a room together.
Our online course covers so much more than just the basics (though we do those too!). You’ll actually understand how to truly create an unbreakable bond with your pup that will mean your pup listens and responds to you so naturally.
THROUGHOUT THE COURSE, YOU’LL GET:
- A full and COMPLETE guide to raising and training your pup
- Personalised help from my dog training team whenever you need
- Facebook Live sessions with me for direct one-on-one advice
- Access to a members-only Facebook Group to ask questions & connect with our puppy training community
- Train in your own time
- Understand WHY you’re doing what you’re doing so you grow your skills as a trainer
WHEN SHOULD I START?
- Ideally, join at least 2 weeks before your pup arrives, so you can get your home set up correctly and be prepared to build great habits from the get-go and handle those critical first few days at home
- However, the course is designed for any pup aged up to 5 months
- If your pup is older than 5 months, join our Virtual School for Teenage Pups
