Puppy Training

Caldecote: Thursday evenings

 

PuppySteps Dog Training Cambridge - Kari and Jan run 6 week courses at Caldecote Village Institute Hall, every Thursday evening in term time. Sessions start at 7.00pm or 8.00pm and last about 45minutes. We book a maximum of 6 or sometimes 7 puppies.

It's indoors, and we spend at least half of each session on practical training, and the rest on chatting about such things as nipping and jumping up, and any queries or problems you may raise. We also offer a session on ‘loose-lead walking’ – ie, not pulling! – outside on the grass on about Week 3 or 4, either before or after the class.

To book or for more details please email Jan at classes@pdtc.co.uk  or phone me on 01954 719588

Thinking of Getting a Puppy?

If you are thinking about getting a new puppy, please do come along to one of the training sessions at CCEG or PDTC. You will be able to meet a number of different breeds and cross-breeds, see them being trained, talk to us and the owners and learn more about them - the good points and also sometimes the potential difficulties!

Different breeds are hugely different, not only in looks but in temperament, reactions and energy levels, because they still have the instincts for the jobs they were bred for.

Even within a breed there can be vastly different types, for instance the show and working strains of breeds like the Golden Retriever, or the Cocker/Working Cocker. The working strains tend to be lighter-built, fast-moving and often rather too workaholic or energetic (manic?!) for a pet home, whereas the show types are generally larger and more relaxed, laid-back characters, and more likely to be happy in the role of family pet.
