Louise’s Dog and Puppy School
Cell + (0)84 828 7880
I have been training retrievers for field trials and gundog working tests for the past 15 years and have, during this time, made up a Field Trial Champion. I also instruct general obedience and socialization in my puppy, adolescent and adult dog classes and assist pet owners by way of private lessons with problem pets. I run specialized courses for training retrievers for the field as well as clicker training workshops and courses. I am an accredited Super Pup Trainer, and have passed the Canine Culture Instructor’s Puppy Course with merit.
Method of Training
I use puppy-friendly methods of training, utilizing various ways of getting and maintaining behaviour such as lure and reward, clicker training and classical conditioning, and have experience with all these methods.

About Our School
My school is situated in a fully-fenced area adjacent to a well-known dog park in the leafy town of Kloof in KZN. My main aim is to help dog and puppy owners to establish a relationship based on mutual trust and respect.
Other Services Offered
As a follow-on to Puppy Kindergarten I offer Junior Good Manners 1 and 2, which is based on the KUSA Canine Good Citizenship programme.
In addition to formal classes I offer private training at clients’ homes, where the training plan is tailored to meet the client’s requirements. I also help with integrating fearful and anxious dogs into situations where there are other dogs and strangers.
