PUPPY CLASSES - 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Please arrive 10 minutes early for your session, and allow your dog to decompress a little in a quiet area before class. Do not allow your dog to approach others prior to the session, see why here below!

 

Please bring with you:

  • A hungry puppy

  • Treats of varying scrumptiousness

  • A flat collar or harness

  • A standard fixed length lead, NO FLEXI/EXTENDABLE leads please.

  • Some toys

  • Something for your pup to chew, for example a stuffed Kong

  • A blanket or mat for your pup to lie on

  • A sense of humour.

 

Classes are outside, so please dress accordingly. Classes will run even in inclement weather. In the rare event of severe weather, the class will be held by Zoom, and we will contact you well in advance with details, ensuring you have got the message. (Please don't message to check to see if class is on, it will be on unless we let you know!)

Be aware that you MUST let us know if any member of your household or someone you have socialised with have suffered from any symptoms associated with Coronavirus in the preceding 14 days, and your details may be provided to Government Track and Trace if requested. We update our COVID19 response regularly here, so check back for updates.

Looking forward to seeing you, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Playing keep away...

We want all dogs at Dogworthy to feel safe and happy in our classes, so please DON'T let your dog approach others before and after class. Here's why

  • We want our puppies to focus on us humans, and often puppies who have spent time rolling around with others, or don't consider they have finished their greeting, will spend their whole class trying to get to other dogs. 

  • Other dogs may be nervous, it may be their first class, they may be not as confident as your pup. 

  • They may be a bit too confident for your pup and scare or injure them. 

  • Their owners may be practicing calm greetings and your pup may be too much of a distraction for them - it will be you soon!

There is PLENTY of time in life to be learning to play happily with other dogs, and we will be covering how to do this safely and politely in your sessions! 

These points are also apply   everywhere in life - please don't let your dog run up to others, on or off lead!
