Puppy Classes are open.
In light of the current global situation we’re practicing social distancing in class where we stand no closer than 2m from the next person, only one person to accompany a pup and there will be F10 Hand Sanitizer for use in class and each person is requested to sanitize when they arrive, leave and as often as they wish. Avoid touching other puppies or their leads and only cuddle your own puppy.
Your pet can’t carry the virus but it can be transferred onto their fur so make sure your hands are clean before interacting with them.
The Confi – Puppy Class 1 is for pups between 8 and 18 weeks old and Puppy 2 is for pups between 4 and 6 months old. These classes are designed to equip owners with the skills needed to raise a happy, well-balanced companion.
Puppy socialization at an early age is vital as your puppy has a short critical window period before the onset of fear and hazard avoidance. It is during this period that they will learn most of their socialization skills and where we can assist with habituation and desensitization to everyday stimuli including noise, children and more. Classes includes information on important issues such as chewing, resource guarding, potty training, digging and bite inhibition to name a few. You will learn how to work with your puppy and teach them in a force-free manner.
Training is held once a week at the 1st Durbanville Scout Group premises in a group setting on Saturday mornings. Classes can be attended for 1 – 3 months and run for around 45 minutes. Please contact me to confirm availability.
Discounted rates for starting mid month and the full following month.
