Puppy Training

Got a new puppy that needs some training?

Want to know how to teach your puppy basic obedience and polite manners? 

Do you have problem behaviours you need to fix?

Don’t worry! We’re here to help :)

We offer a 2hr ‘All-You-Need-To-Know’ Puppy Session to cover all the basics and more. If you have any problems or issues with your puppy as a result of the lockdown we can fix them during this session.

Alternatively, you could enrol on our 3-session Puppy Basic Obedience Course – designed to give you what you need to know but in smaller bite-size chunks that your young puppy can cope with. 

The Perfect Puppy

Just What We Needed

We recently completed the Positive Plus puppy obedience course with our young puppy which consisted of 3 x 1 hour sessions with Martin in our garden. We honestly couldn’t recommend the course enough to anyone who also has a new puppy or a young dog, you’ll learn a lot! We initially reached out to Martin because, although we’d already started doing a bit of training ourselves, we wanted to make sure we were doing things right and setting our puppy up for success. We learned so much from Martin about how to properly mark behaviour and the steps we needed to take to successfully train the things that we needed most help with. Martin is truly an expert in his field and our puppy has come on leaps and bounds as a result. Following the course we now have all the information and guidance we need to continue training effectively and are so happy that we took the time to do the course.

Set your puppy up for success from the off and make raising your puppy fun!

Learn about introducing your new puppy to the household, housetraining (including toilet training), biting and mouthing, teaching basic commands, walking on a loose lead and the importance of correct socialisation to create a happy, confident adult dog that loves to listen to you!

This ‘All-You-Need-To-Know’ session can be booked as one complete session (with your puppy) or as two 1 hour sessions – the first shortly before your puppy arrives to enable you to hit the ground running, and the second shortly after so you can learn how to teach the basics of obedience and manners.

A follow-on Puppy Basic Obedience course is also available if desired. (Can also be booked separately)


  • 2hr ‘All-You-Need-To-Know’ Session (house/toilet-training, mouthing, jumping, socialisation, lead-walking etc) – £80.00
  • 3 x 1hr Puppy Basic Obedience Course – £135.00

Group puppy classes can be a very distracting environment for your puppy to learn so we find it more effective to teach puppies and owners on a 1-to-1 basis, after which they can take what they’ve learnt and apply it more successfully. Obviously you also get our full attention (as opposed to a class), sessions are booked to suit your schedule, and you easily can ask any questions that arise etc.

Great Support & Knowledge

After re-homing a 5 month delightful Cocker Spaniel we contacted Martin to help and support us with a few issues that she came with. Martins vast knowledge and insight was a great help to us and even after a couple of sessions we can see a great benefit to her behaviour and she certainly is turning into a well behaved and balanced puppy. Thank you Martin for all your help and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you, or call you up in future!
