For puppies aged between 8-16 weeks of age and had their first vaccination. Pawsitive puppy classes help to set your puppy up for success while learning in a fun and relaxed environment.
Puppy class isn't just about socialising with other puppies, it's also about teaching your puppy basic manners and focus exercises, plus how to settle and build calm confidence. We also teach cooperative care skills and the importance of choice plus how to be your puppy's advocate for life.
Classes are small (max 4 puppies) so you can get individual attention and coaching.

We offer a variety of online programs for you to learn skills easily at home in a comfortable environment and at your own pace.
We love online training for so many reasons! It’s dedicated time you spend with your dog in the comfort of your own home and flexible around your schedule. You have dedicated support from us (via email and phone) if you have any issues that arise during the course. For those doing the Reframing Reactivity, it’s a controlled environment so your dog won’t accidentally go over threshold. By using the app, you can have all the videos on your phone that you can view anytime and anyplace.
You get heaps and heaps of additional resources that add exceptional value to the online option.
For cats that don’t like strangers this is the best less stressful option.
Your training is not impacted by weather (rain, wind, heat, cold) and it’s more environmentally friendly (no travel, no fuel!).
Plus free eBooks packed with info!
