Extraordinary Puppy Classes

puppy classes Musselburgh Yellowcraig East Lothian

Raising a puppy is a roller coaster of emotions.

It’s exciting, scary, fun and stressful all at the same time. Our puppy training class will take away the overwhelm and have you crystal clear on what you’re doing and why you’re doing it!

Puppy Paradox is our 6-week class designed to guide you through raising your puppy to be a stand-up adult dog. You’ll get all the training, tools and support you need to be an awesome puppy raiser!

For puppies aged 10-20 weeks old.
If your puppy will be older than 20 weeks at the start of the course, you’re ready for dog training classes!

What happens at Puppy Class?

Here we will teach you how your pup thinks & learns. We will help guide you through the exciting yet sometimes daunting job of bringing up a puppy. Our classes cover a variety of topics, all delivered using positive training techniques to help your pup become a confident, happy adult dog.

We start with two online training classes via Zoom, so you and your puppy can master your new skills without distractions, before we take it to the next level.

Learn how to

handle puppy biting and stop the relentless and painful nipping
socialise your puppy properly so they grow into a well-mannered dog
teach and improve recall, so you can enjoy freedom together
master loose lead training so that every walk’s a joy
get your puppy to focus and pay attention, even around distractions

Outdoor classes are much more helpful!

I recently attended puppy classes with Becky. This is not my first time using East Coast Dog Training and would not go anywhere else or hesitate to recommend.

The first time I attended puppy classes was in a hall, however, I found having the first three classes online and the remaining 3 outside was much more helpful.

Becky is very experienced and extremely knowledgeable! She makes you feel at ease and is very approachable.

Thanks again Becky!

Comprehensive, hands-on puppy training

Very comprehensive course covering all the issues with a new pup. Becky is so hands-on even with the Zoom meetings, which I was sceptical about, but actually are easier as pups not distracted by other dogs.

It takes a few weeks to see the results but stick to it, and then they just fall into place. It should be called puppy owners course as it’s you she trains, not your dog.

She is always available to answer any queries and is great support. She is so obviously a dog lover. Highly recommend her.

– Lynda Ferrigan

Easy to follow and manageable to fit in!

We really enjoyed our puppy classes with Becky. It was great getting videos to practice with, as well as all the fact sheets.

Everything was easy to follow and felt manageable to fit in. Becky is really friendly and happy to answer any questions.

We are already signed up for our next course.

Thanks Becky, for making training our puppy feel possible and fun for us and Winnie.

Alternatives to Puppy Classes

If your schedule makes it difficult for you to attend puppy training classes, then I have a couple of handy options for you!

You can access our puppy training course completely online and on your schedule.

You’ll have backup support with our private Facebook community where you can join live Q&As, post questions and get real-life support to bolster your training.

Alternatively, you can book in for 1-2-1 puppy training with me.
