Kate - Zelda:

My experience with Morley vetcentre puppy classes very positive, I can't recommend them enough. I was new to having a puppy as an adult (I grew up around animals as a child) & I found I didn't know how to best communicate with Zelda, so I enrolled in these classes. These puppy classes were very well organised, structured & well executed to give Zelda & I the great relationship we have now. It gave us tools to help communicate with each other. And the instructor is very passionate about giving us a great start which showed by her willingness to share her wealth of knowledge with us. Thank you again for the running theses puppy classes I don't know where I'd be without them!

 

Lauren - Colt:

Having not had a puppy for years I wanted mine to get off on the right paw and knew Laura would be a terrific puppy class trainer for us. Booking in was easy and the classes were well paced with not too many puppies - brilliant!
You get a whole lot of information and support for your money - including some really informative resources to listen to, read and keep. Laura is well prepared each class with games, lessons and products that you can try before you buy. Whilst I ensured my boy was exposed to many things during his first months with me, I firmly believe the puppy lessons with Laura further set us up for success.

 

Helen - Luna:

We recently attended puppy preschool for the second time with our new puppy Luna, Laura and the team at Morley Vet Centre focus on helping you and your puppy get started on your journey together in such a positive way. They also give plenty of information and advice on managing all the inevitable teething problems of living with your new puppy. Highly recommend their classes.

 


Kerian - Honey:

It had been 18 years since I last had a puppy in my life and puppy training classes have changed significantly!  Training included very practical sessions on commands, using the reward system (to your advantage) and advice when you were unsure of the best way forward to resolve an issue – in my case a lot of biting of my feet and hands!  Also the importance of socialisation of your puppy in those initial first weeks.  Laura conducted the training in a small environment so you really felt you were getting one-on-one assistance.  She was always very happy to chat after class about specific issues that you were encountering. There was even homework which was more a follow up of what had been covered in the class and just getting you into the mindset of continuous training and reinforcement of what had been taught and u-tube videos covering loads of training with puppy and it was also a lot of fun!   Would highly recommend Laura and the rest of the training team.
