Puppy Training Courses

Our Ethos & Approach

All SPPOT's Services are provided by our highly qualified, friendly staff, supported by our fully trained, accredited volunteers.


We use only positive, force-free, scientifically proven techniques and classes are small, ensuring a high level of individual tuition and support.


We like to teach customers how use clicker training because it is so easy to learn and engages your dog’s natural instincts and abilities which uses their mental energy for the things you want them to learn. This simple method is easy for people of all ages, including children to use effectively.


SPPOT's Manager and Lead Tutor, Kerri Bee holds a Foundation Degree in Canine Behaviour and Training and is a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers UK. Kerri has designed and run these dog training courses for well over ten years and helped develop the APDT's Good Companion Awards which are achieveable by taking part in our puppy & dog training courses.

Puppy Training Courses

Introduction

SPPOT’s Puppy Training Courses provide you with a complete package of information, training and support to enable you to give your puppy the best possible start in life. 


As the first session is mainly discussion, if your puppy hasn’t finished their vaccinations, you may attend this session without your puppy.

Our wonderful accredited training centre is fully equipped with everything you or your puppy will need while on your course. 


SPPOT's Puppy Training Courses are for puppies under 26 weeks old, who have completed their vaccinations. If your puppy is older than 26 weeks, our Foundation Training Course is ideal for you, just click the button below
