Mindful Puppy School

Education for modern puppy parents.

Researching and planning for the arrival of your new puppy is such a fun and exciting experience…

However… As soon as your cute furry one arrives, you will be struck with a ton of questions. So the best way to set yourself and your puppy up for success is to educate yourself BEFORE your puppy arrives!

That is why our in-person Mindful Puppy School also includes an extensive PRE-CLASS Puppy Parenting course. You can start learning and receive support from a Certified Dog Professional, immediately after enrolment.

Our reputible Puppy School offers a well-structured puppy program, so you can learn to apply a consistent, effective, modern and mindful parenting approach. Well-prepared to prevent common problems, so you can fully enjoy your new puppy experience.
