Puppy Training Group Classes

Nurturing a happy future

Leaps and Hounds offers fun, friendly and informative puppy classes. The course focuses on teaching you to understand your puppy better, nurture calmness, build confidence whilst supporting healthy growth and development.

We consider having a puppy as a “parenting” role. We focus on how to give puppies agency and autonomy while educating safe boundaries for every day life.

Each puppy family will received our Puppyhood Booklet (PDF) with their course, as well as weekly notes throughout the course.

Each class is an hour long, but we allow extra time for extra questions. The classes are held in a full-time Training barn and secure acre field in a natural, enriching environment ideal for positive early life experiences.

All Family members are welcome as we have lots of space.

  • Development stages & learning
  • Toileting & sleep
  • Nutrition & care
  • Mouthing & puppy biting
  • Nurturing “crazy” to calm
  • Home alone and happy
  • Play and social time
