We have thoroughly enjoyed our puppy classes with Laure-Anne and her assistant trainers. The small class size was ‘intimate’ enough that we don’t feel like we are missing out (we all received individual attention during class and they made sure to help us understand our goals and mistakes we make), moved along at a good pace and they always ensured that we and the puppies all have sufficient room.
Having been to a few puppy courses before, we found that the explanations and theory behind each lesson Laure-Anne gave to be particularly useful as it demonstrates to us the different scenarios and motivations that drive our beloved four-legged friends and family members. It specifically clarifies for me why sometimes a lesson our puppy has learned works and why sometimes it won’t.
We think these classes provide us with the basic tools to bringing up Fido, and whilst they may not do all we think we want, what is more important is that we get what we actually need. We found each class to be fun (with some play-acting and playgrounds thrown in) and Fido came away happy every week.
It is also very good value for the price of the course as not only did we receive a written-up summary of the class each week, we are presented with the proverbial doggy-bag filled with useful items like puppy toys, treats and even a safety LED light at our last class!
Laure-Anne and her team certainly seem to have experienced their share of puppy classes and have come up with the formula to a successful first course for puppy
