  • We offer a comprehensive training and socialisation programme designed to give owners a good foundation for life with their new puppy.
  • At Puppy School, only kind, effective, reward-based training techniques are used.

Welcome to Puppy School Plymouth

Puppy School Plymouth provides a comprehensive programme which has been carefully designed to take you through all the obedience basics giving you a good foundation for life with your new puppy.

Puppy School is founded by APBC registered behaviourist and author Gwen Bailey. Your tutors regularly attend seminars and conferences run by leading trainers/behaviourists in order to keep up to date with the latest science behind animal behaviour and training.

The puppy training exercises gradually progress from easy to more complex over a period of six weekly sessions lasting one hour. We help you to build on your puppy’s understanding and reliability each week.

We want to give your puppy the best start possible so we educate puppies to have good manners, to be friendly with adults, children and other puppies and to respond to basic commands.

Your experienced Puppy School Tutor will be on hand throughout the course to help you with any behavioural problems you may be experiencing. At the end of the six-week course, your puppy will graduate and receive a very special Puppy School rosette and certificate for completing the course.

Puppy School Training Manual

Puppy School Manual

The Puppy School Manual is provided in your FREE welcome goody box.

Our manual is designed to give you all the extra information you need and to help you practice the exercises we teach in classes at home. Our techniques are based on science and years of experience, so we know they work, but it is up to you and your family to do the practice every day to ensure a thorough and complete learning experience. For a well-behaved, well-trained dog, it is essential to practice everything little and often throughout the week.

We are proud to have Natures Menu as our sponsors as we share a common interest in the welfare and wellbeing of puppies and dogs.
