Puppy Classes

Our Puppy Genius course focuses on essential life skills to help them and their owners navigate their lives together.  Teaching reliable responses to important cues, encouraging good choice-making, and building confidence and resilience.   Many activities are dog centered, keeping the dog's needs and perception in mind. Other activities are focused on team work between the owner and the puppy, encouraging understanding and communication between both parties.   

Course content and teaching methods are in line with international dog training and behavioural regulation bodies such as the PPG and the IMDT.  

These are rolling classes, which means there is not specific starting date, but at the end of your five-week course, you and your pup would have completed the full course.  Puppies can start from 10 weeks of age, as long as it's been 10 days after their first vaccination.   

Registration is open for March.

Sundays: from 09:00 am

Group class venue:  The Links Bridge Club. 143 - 145 Tenth Street. Linksfield, JHB
