Puppy training in Grantham
Ruff Cut Diamonds – Puppies
It’s never too soon to start training and socialising your puppy. However, all puppies must have had all their vaccinations before joining a class unless your vet agrees they can start earlier. We accept puppies aged 20 weeks and under (although older pups may attend, depending on size and temperament).
Six one hour puppy training lessons
Over a course of six one-hour sessions (held weekly), we will aim to cover the basics of caring for and training your puppy so he/she becomes a happy and well behaved addition to your family. We will show you how to begin to teach your puppy:
- to pay attention to you
- the basic positions of sit, down and stand
- to wait and stay for short periods
- to walk on a loose lead
- to come back when called
- the rules of play, and some fun tricks and games
- to become accustomed to being handled
- general good manners and the boundaries you want to set in your household.
We will talk to you about how you can prevent problems, the importance of socialising your puppy and introducing him/her to new experiences. We will allow time for the puppies to play together, carefully matching them in size and temperament so none of them are overwhelmed or frightened. In addition, we will highlight your duty of care and responsibility to your puppy, a small price to pay for all the fun and companionship you will get in return.
We will do all that – with your help – in a fun, informal way, in small structured classes with puppies of a similar age and ability. The whole family is very welcome to attend (although children must be supervised).

Pre-class 1:1 for puppies
Is your puppy too young to go out? Are you new to dog ownership? Do you need a little extra help and support when you get your puppy home?
We will visit you in your own home and answer any questions you have about your pup’s training and behaviour (eg nipping, jumping up, exercise and lead walking, crate and house training), and show you how to start the basic training exercises, all of which will help you and your puppy get the most out of the classes.
Cost: £10-£20, depending on time needed and location
