Puppy Training in Market Drayton


Our 6 week puppy training courses are fun, innovative and totally force-free and are available for pups aged between 11 - 20 weeks, at the start of the course. With only 8 pups per course and two trainers, owners can be assured of a wealth of individual guidance and support.

Too old for Puppy Training? Join our Adult Beginner's Course for pups over 20 weeks.


In this course, you'll be taught, through clear demonstrations, all the skills needed to develop a solid training foundation including, sit, down, stay, stand, gentle, settle, coming when called and lose lead walking. You'll also have opportunities to master effective handling techniques and toy play, which will reduce biting, as well as learning how to teach your pup to greet people without jumping up. Your pup will also socialise with other pups and a range of people and will even learn a trick or two that you can wow your friends and family with!

We welcome the whole family to our training sessions, including children, 5 and over, who are keen to learn how to train their new puppy.

You'll also receive a certificate and rosette on completion of the course.


We are sponsored by Natures Menu and each puppy signed up for Puppy School receives a free 'Welcome Box' from them delivered straight to their doorstep, which includes our full-colour training manual! You'll also receive our Puppy Guidance Pack with 15 information sheets to ensure that you have all the information necessary to get your pup off to the right start, before even joining the course.


An invite to our fortnightly 60 minute Social Group Walks for puppies is also included.


Courses run every 3 weeks @ at Adderley Village Hall, Main Road, Adderley, Market Drayton, TF9 3FA. Courses are £65 for a 6 week course.

Group Social walks - dog walking group

To Aid Training & Socialisation

All clients who book a Puppy Training Course are invited to attend our Puppy Socialisation Walks. These take place in various locations in and around Shropshire, often suggested by owners, and are a great way of practising your newly-found skills, giving you an opportunity to begin to train your puppy around distractions in the real world, with help and support on hand, from Maria, Steve and fellow-owners.  


From 6 months+, owners who have attended any of our courses or workshops or have booked a 1:1 session with us, will be invited to join our fortnightly Dog Walking Group to ensure their dog's socialisation journey continues, on a regular basis.


These walks are also a great opportunity to get to know other owners who may be interested in further Meet & Greets, Play Dates and walks with you and your furry friends.


Our groups meet fortnightly, and your booking provides you with Free Lifetime Membership to them.
