Puppy Training FAQ

What age puppies is this suitable for?

One of the brilliant things about Positive Training is that you can start using them almost as soon as a pup is born! So these sessions are suitable for pups to enrol from 8 weeks (when you’re legally around to take them home) to about 16 weeks.

This course is only for pups who haen’t started walking yet. If your pup has already ventured outside, check out our Dog Walking Training Services instead.

When should I book the sessions for?

The first session can be booked whenever you like, ideally before your pup has had their final vaccinations, or during the ‘cooling off’ period after them.

The second session should be during daylight hours, after the ‘cooling off period’ of the vaccinations. There should be about a week’s gap between the two sessions.

What walking equipment do I need?

Your pup will need a harness and a lead. We recommend Perfect Fit Harnesses, but any harness will suffice.

For the lead, please have a fixed length lead (not an extendable) that is long enough that when your hands are at waist height, your pup can be lying down next to your feet.

You will need a treat pouch that you can wear on your person.

What is covered in the two sessions?

The first session takes place at your home. We work on confidence building, getting your pup used to being on the lead, and how to walk alongside us.

The second session will start at your home, before venturing outside. We will build on the work from the first session, and importantly will make sure everything that your pup experiences is fun and exciting, rather than scary.

How do I prepare my pup for the training?

Please make sure that your pup is rested, and that they have not had a meal in the hour beforehand. Treats are fine. Treats are always fine.

I have a different issue with my puppy, can we cover that as well?

Unfortunately not – these sessions are focused solely on your pup’s first walk. Take a look at our other Puppy Training Services for something that may be more suitable.

I've bought the package, how do I book the sessions ?

There is a link unique to you on your booking confirmation email. Just click on that, and you’ll find all the sessions available to your package.
