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. 

The 6 week course

Our 6 week course will include the following:

  • 6 in-person classes of no more than 4 puppies to ensure you are getting the most out of our sessions. Each session will last approx. an 1 hour

  • Lifetime access to a video vault of over 100 training lessons, multiple choice quizzes and downloads including bonus modules on: The Foundations, Toilet Training, Mouthing chewing & teething, Preventing separation anxiety, Crate Training, Socialisation & Habituation

  • 6 week online course to accompany the in-person classes. Each week you will have video’s to review ahead of our class, totalling approximately 30 mins per week. Access to the online materials will be made available ahead of the class start date

  • Each class will allow time for questions and supervised play

  • Certificate of graduation

  • Access to Facebook support group for ongoing support even after the classes finish

  • Discount codes for products and recommendations
