Puppy Training Classes
About our puppy classes
At Canine Friends our puppy classes have been designed to maximise the benefit for both you and your puppy. So many puppy classes are unfortunately run badly with oversubscribed numbers, little to no learning or positive social experiences and some even developing behavioural issues as a result. We have designed our puppy classes to be the exact opposite with max class sizes of 4 puppies, access to online learning to make the most of the class setting and most importantly a fun environment for both you and your puppy to learn and socialise. Our classes are held in Boughton-Under-Blean, Kent in a purpose built secure area.
