PUPPY SCHOOL & FOLLOW ON COURSES
At Dog Hollow we believe that early socialisation, habituation, and training, provide the foundations for a bright future.
London puppies are expected to absorb an overwhelming amount of environmental sounds, sights, and smells, therefore,
the sooner they can be exposed to such, the better they will adjust, and thrive as adult city dogs.
Our socialisation and early learning courses, and our private home consultations, provide you with all the
information and confidence you will need to raise your London puppy.
As members of several organisations including the Pet professional Guild, and the APDT,
the advice and training methods we use are always the most up to date, scientifically sound, reward based,
and force-free, resulting in pleasurable and effective learning experiences for both puppy and owner.
We have helped many of our clients' puppies grow and develop into well behaved and sociable adult dogs,
and pride ourselves in being there to support our clients throughout their dogs' lives.
Our somewhat legendary puppy early learning and socialisation courses remain as popular as ever. Held in the heart of Chelsea,
classes run for six consecutive weeks, and enable you and your puppy to meet and socialise with other puppies,
people & children, and learn basic obedience skills, including:
Sit, lie down, walk on a loose lead, stay, leave it, and come when called.
In addition, talks throughout the course provide a wealth of information about raising your London puppy. Topics covered include:
Understanding & interacting with your puppy, how puppies learn, house training, diet & health, exercise, toys & play, and preventing behaviour problems.
Requirements for class: Ordinary collar or harness, normal length flat lead, good quality dog treats, and a blanket / bed for your puppy to settle on.
Follow on / Adolescent Courses
Follow on classes are designed for older puppies and adolescents up to 18 months, who have graduated from our, or any other puppy school, with basic obedience skills.
Chelsea Classes enable your young dog to continue learning as they enter their tricky teens, adding the three D's (Distance, Duration & Distraction) to established behaviours, and learning some brand new skills.
Most importantly, classes are relaxed, and enjoyable, and fun, incorporating some novel and cutting edge activities.
Home Consultations & Training
Dog Hollow offers home consultations either just before or after your puppy arrives, to provide advice and guidance
on the best way to fit your new addition into your lifestyle.
Designed to give you a "head start", our clients, especially first time puppy parents, have found this service to be invaluable,
and particularly helpful for house training, preventing behaviour problems,
and providing the puppy with an enriched and encouraging environment. Consultations last between 1 - 1.5 hours.
Can't make it to class?
We offer home training if you cannot make it to class. We provide the exact same training and information given in puppy class,
at a time that is convenient for you, at your home, and condensed into three sessions.
