Getting a puppy?

Puppy Training

Puppy training is about experiential learning for both you and your puppy.  It is important to enjoy this time with your dog, whilst building a strong, safe, happy relationship.

Leaps and Hounds offers group puppy classes and 1-2-1 puppy training in the Exeter area. Both options can offer you the advice and support you need to build a happy relationship with your puppy. 

We focus on teaching you how best to communicate with your puppy; How to understand them, facilitate their needs and how to build foundations for a happy life together. You will learn about your puppies brain and body. The development they go through in puppyhood. How they learn and how to support their learning.  We include nurturing calmness, enabling relaxed social skills and happy play.  As well as learning the principles and practice of lead walking, recall and much more.

(other areas covered include, toilet training, puppy biting, sleep, nutrition, play, basic training skills, and more)

After training with us you will have a deeper understanding of dogs and a good foundation for a long happy life together.

*If you haven’t got your puppy yet, we also offer a pre-puppy zoom/phone chat to help you prepare for the arrival of your four legged family member*
