"Train your puppy from the very start"

Dogs in line Home Puppy Training in Lewes

Lewes - Plumpton - Chailey - Barcombe

Why is early puppy training so important ? Once you’ve chosen the right puppy for you, it is vital that you start training and socialising your puppy immediately.  This is because the first 4 months are without a doubt the most important weeks of your puppy's life. This is known as the critical period...Every single thing your puppy sees, hears, feels, smells and tastes in those first 16 weeks they will remember for life.

Much of what is learned during this early period is lasting, providing a foundation for many adult behaviour patterns and problems good and bad. A puppy who is properly socialised in this period will more than likely grow up to be well balanced, confident, calm and be less likely to respond to new things fearfully or aggressively. In contrast, a puppy who has not had this good start in life is more likely to be over-reactive, fearful, slower at learning and develop preventable behaviour problems.

Breaking tradition...The most traditional way would be waiting until your puppy is fully vaccinated normally after 12/13 weeks and then attending puppy training classes. But unfortunately the majority of the time, your puppy will be maybe missing out. They are going to be with you for a long time, so it's worth making the investment now. Training your puppy from the very start is one of the most important gifts you can give your puppy.

Why choose my personalised tuition ?...Owning a puppy is not always easy and knowing “what is the right thing to do” can be very challenging. Especially with all of the advice and mixed messages out there. If you knew what to do from the start, and had proper support, then things would be a lot smoother. With this in mind I have created Two specific puppy programs, that will equip you and your family with the essential skills and, knowledge on how to raise your puppy. This special tuition creates clear lines of communication that will help your puppy to develop in a positive way. See what Sue's clients say...Testimonials

Highly recommended puppy training

"Sue is amazing! She visited us before our puppy Pug Frank came home and gave us some great advice on how to prepare ourselves and our house for his arrival. I'd read so many conflicting pieces of advice so it was great to be able to ask a professional. Sue came back a week after Frank came home with the plan of giving us advice on house training. Frank is our first family pup and so we were oblivious to the fact that Frank was unwell. Sue noticed a few things and advised us to take him to the vet the next day. To cut a very long and distressing story short Frank was taken in immediately and put in oxygen. The next morning they arranged for us to take Frank to the Royal College of Vets. He spent 9 days there and had a long list of problems. We were told to expect the worst but Frank is a fighter and didn't give up. He's now back at home and full of beans. Sue came round tonight and gave us so ready more great tips on training, walking and dealing with his teething. I would recommend Sue highly to anyone for how good she has been and a huge help to us but also have to say we owe her Frank's life too. We were told he was hours from dying when we took him in and we would never have known if it wasn't for Sue. We shall always be in her debt. She is a truly lovely wonderful person .Thank you Sue from all of us and Frank.

Frank 9 weeks old Pug puppy

"We called Sue after getting our 8 week old Labrador puppy. Having never had a dog before we just needed some guidance and help with training. Cooper also used to cry every time I left the house or walked away from him and I was tearing my hair out wondering what to do with him. We are so pleased we contacted Sue, Cooper is now a well behaved lovely natured 5 month old puppy. He walks off the lead, comes back to recall and is so gentle around strangers, other dogs and our young nieces and nephews. Not to mention the fact that he is so relaxed being left on his own now, it's amazing! We would highly recommend Sue for anyone wanting general training or help with any behavioural problems with their puppy or dog, she's brilliant!"

8 week old Labradore, Lewes

"Sue's advice and support has been fantastic. I met with Sue even before we brought our puppy home, and this and a couple of further training sessions, really set us up well with how to manage the tricky early weeks and months. Sue is extremely knowledgeable, supportive, encouraging and fun, and I have no hesitation in recommending her"

Luna 9 Weeks Ridgeback puppy, Lewes

"We contacted Sue as we had just purchased a bulldog puppy. Before Frank arrived Sue came round and gave us some excellent advice to prepare us for his arrival. We then had a another session with Sue with Frank at home. Wow! Our 10 week puppy is performing tasks on command. Our 3rd session was outside training on the lead and off for recall. As a result of these 3 sessions, we now feel confident in the tricks and tips Sue has provided to continue on our Puppy to Dog training journey."
