Based on positive-reward based training, our unique Focus First Training Methods take you and your pup on an exciting journey. This unique method emphasises the importance of focus, around distractions.

WEEK 4 Reward

We know how hard it is training a puppy and finding time to put the work in each week. We also know it’s expensive, buying all the kit, so on week 4 we have a gift for you.

Your own, Puppy Training Bag, along with some small gifts for you and your pup.

Motivators are such a big key to getting your puppy coming back to you in the park. We discuss with you, how to build your ‘Tool Kit’ and your puppy training bag is perfect for this task.
