Puppy’s First Walk

A 2-part puppy training course, helping you and your pup to have a positive and happy first walk.

Excellent! Sharon was great – as good at training me as at training Asta, and the Training Notes are fun to read. Elizabeth and Asta
Sharon is a miracle worker! When visiting Butternut Box offices she taught one of our puppies how to ‘down’ in about 5 seconds Hannah and Reya
Sharon’s can do attitude has given us the confidence boost we needed. A lovely friendly woman, full of excellent advice, who we could honestly share our insecurities with over our new little terror of a Parson Terrier. Vivien and Tippi
Great training We really enjoyed it and Sunny has come on leaps and bounds in just a couple of days Jane and Sunny
Definitely booking more Lessons! I couldn’t have asked for someone more knowledgeable about dogs and also very good with transferring knowledge over to humans. L Bauer and Leia
Great value for money Sharon was great… Definitely helped with the training of our puppy. Thank you for all your help guys! Adene and Ozzy

A puppy’s first walk should be an exciting and positive experience.

Unfortunately, some new dog owners don’t realise how important this is, and in failing to prepare properly, both for themselves and their pup, start off on the wrong foot. This results in nightmare walks, their dog always pulling and and not paying attention.

The Office Dog can help you ensure that walks with your pup will always be a joy in your years ahead.

What is covered?

Part 01

The first session is carried out in the comfort of your own home.

We’ll teach you exercises for focus and for actually getting you and your pup used to walking with a lead.

If your puppy has some favourite treats, or a favoured squeaky toy, it might be helpful to have these handy.

Part 02

The second session will be at least a week after the first, to allow you time to practice. It will start indoors, before heading outside into the big wide world, where we’ll put all your hard work into practice.

Your puppy must have had final vaccines, and finished the ‘clearance period’ as laid out by your vet (usually 2 weeks from the vaccination date).

Please only book the second session in daylight hours.

How does it work?

  • Only one dog per session.
  • This is a 2-part course suitable for young puppies who have not yet had their first walk outside.* The first session is even suitable for pups who have not yet had their first vaccine.
  • The trainer will come to your home or office, and training will start indoors, unless otherwise arranged.
  • All dogs will be walked on a harness, and a fixed length lead. If you do not have either of these, your trainer will provide them for the class. For safety reasons, and the well-being of your dog, we will not walk a dog on a collar, or an extendable lead.

Please note, that we feel that a dog should be allowed to be a dog as much as possible, and so our classes aren’t a military-style boot-camp where dogs are forced to walk like a robot on one particular side, perfectly inline with you at all times.

Recall Foundations is suitable for puppies of all ages. It does what it says on the tin; working in your own home it builds a foundation in a safe environment, teaching your dog to come running when called.
