Puppy Training Cheltenham | GL54

What will your puppy learn?


Joyful Dogs provides puppy training classes via the ‘Puppy School’ franchise.  You and your puppy will steadily progress from easy to more complex exercises, building on your puppy’s understanding and reliability each week.  At the end of the 6 week course you will have a solid foundation for life with your puppy.  The Puppy School course is equivalent to the Kennel Club’s Foundation Certificate.  The Puppy School syllabus includes:
