Puppy Classes are held at Sowood Community Centre HX4 9HY on Tuesday Evenings. Location is ideal for puppy owners living in the Halifax and Huddersfield areas and close to the M62 for those living further afield.
We are proud to have been one of the first clubs in the country to run set, structured classes exclusively for young puppies. It is nice to see that other clubs in the area and further afield have look at what we do and are following suite.
Unfortunately there are still far too many trainers running puppy classes who's only real experience involves training their own pet puppies. Take a look at our experience on the home page which includes working professionally with puppy walkers for Guide Dogs For The Blind
If you have an older puppy, take a look at our Junior /Dog Training Page where classes are much more suited for dogs 5 months of age and over.

The first week of each course is for owners (without puppies) and lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours. We will talk about having the right relationship with your puppy, how dogs learn, rewards and praise, how to avoid problem behaviour as your puppy gets older, time for individual questions plus much more.
If you have a very young puppy, find there is a delay of more than a week or two before the next puppy course starts or already experiencing unwanted behaviour such as mouthing, weeing or pooing in the house, jumping up, barking throughout the night or just want to avoid problems in the future by getting things right at the start we would recommend the PREMIUM PUPPY PACKAGE below.
