Puppy Classes

COVID - 19

Unfortunate due to COVID - 19 Cambridge Dog Services will NOT be able to offer training classes until at least OCTOBER 2020. As the head Trainer Melissa Hartnack is living with someone who is shielding. We do have some great online classes which you can start at any time with lots of trainer support. The advantage of the online classes would mean you can start your training journey with your puppy straight away. No waiting for them to have their 2nd set of vaccines. This is perfect as training starts from the day you collect your puppy. 8 - 12 weeks is a critical period for social imprinting what your puppy learns during this time is going to shape their future personalities. Make sure you are getting it right. You will be able to ask as many questions as you like either via email, text or on our private Facebook group where you can share your training journey with other new puppy paw-parents. Come and join us we are a very social butch.

Puppy Starter Package


Puppies can start learning from the day they are born, so why not help your puppy to learn the rules of the house and to settle them into a toilet schedule. Puppies can't go out to puppy classes until they have had at least their second vaccination. This can take up to 4 weeks! In this crucial time your puppy needs to learn basic manners, how to play without biting their owners and much more. This package is for owners who are wanting to book onto our classes.
