Our Puppy Training Classes - AVAILABLE LIVE ONLIne

This is a video of real trainers, owners and their puppies, training the Puppy School Way and it's why I'm so proud to be a Puppy School Tutor!


Welcome & Congratulations on your new addition!

DON'T MISS OUT ON TRAINING YOUR NEW PUP IN A SMALL GROUP DURING LOCKDOWN! PUPPY SCHOOL LIVE COURSES  ARE NOW  AVAILABLE. Covering the same great course in our LIVE training room with small groups of 3 pups maximum, at a special LOCKDOWN price!  Learn safely in the comfort of your own home. Puppy School Live is available for any pup aged 9 - 24 weeks. LIVE online coaching provided throughout. Please call Maria on 07939 994126 for a FREE taster session OR email me at trainmeandmydog@gmail.com


1:1 IN PERSON TRAINING with you and your puppy. You'll complete your course here in person with Maria and a couple of my own dogs can even be training alongside your pup so that they have the chance for socialisation experience in a safe environment.

5 sessions cost £150.


Board your pup with Maria and she will begin their training with them. They will also benefit from great socialisation with Maria's dogs, boarders and daycare dogs in a safe environment. A 1:1 training session is included in the price, in which you'll be taught the techniques needed to continue their training at home. This programme costs £250 per week. I would advise a minimum of a 2 week training programme to achieve the best results but please contact me to discuss your needs further.


Book your pup in for a Train & Board Daycare Package, available 7 days a week. Your pup will receive valuable training and socialisation. This package is priced at £30 per day.

Here at TMAMD, we offer Puppy School Classes to help you to give your puppy the very best possible start in life! In our first year in Market Drayton, in 2019, we trained 102 puppies! Our 6 week puppy training and socialisation courses are fun, innovative and totally force-free and are available for fully-vaccinated pups aged between 11 - 20 weeks, at the start of their course.  With only 5 pups per course, owners can be assured of a wealth of individual guidance and support. You will be actively involved in working with your own puppy throughout each lesson ensuring that you not only have fun, but fully maximise your learning time.  This course will develop your pup's basic training, improve your ability to communicate effectively with them and develop their social skills with people and other puppies, thus developing their confidence.

Our course is also progressive, so you and your puppy will learn new skills every week and you'll receive a full-colour training manual so you can practise between lessons. 

(Too old for Puppy Training? Then join our Level 1 Beginners Course for pups over 20 weeks.)

In our Puppy Training Course, you'll be taught, through clear demonstrations with the pups in class, all the skills needed to develop a solid training foundation including;

  •  sit, 
  • down, 
  • stay, 
  • stand, 
  • gentle, leave
  • settle, 
  • coming when called
  • loose lead walking, teaching your pup to walk to heal
  • anti-pull methods
  •  opportunities to develop effective handling techniques that will help your puppy cope with vet and grooming visits
  • toy play, which will reduce play-biting  and help you to create an unbreakable bond with your puppy
  • teaching 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!

You will also be welcome to attend our monthly Puppy Socials FREE OF CHARGE for the duration of your puppy course (usual price £10) by contacting Maria to confirm your attendance. We also offer a range of excellent follow-on courses and workshops to continue your pup's training beyond the initial puppy training level.

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 £35 '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 monthly 60 minute Social Group Walks for puppies is also included.

  • Courses run every few weeks in Tern Hill, Market Drayton on weekday evenings and weekends. Courses are £75 for a 6 week course.

Why Choose to Train Your Puppy?


'Just finished our 6 week course with our pup, Henry at Puppy School.  We all really enjoyed it and got so much from the training provided. Maria and Steve were fab.  We're all going to miss the weekly classes and other pups. Highly recommend going if you've got a new puppy.'

'Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Maria!! We have learnt so much over the last 6 weeks and Doug has loved every minute of it! As mentioned to you today Doug managed to escape through our front door a few days ago and bolted straight up the road but, as we use the PS recall technique on a regular basis, when I used it, he came running straight back to me...which is amazing!! Thank you.'

My pup, Cooper

Aged only 9 weeks, my pup Cooper, was always so focussed during his training, even with my other 3 dogs milling around the garden.
