About Our School
Rose’s Puppy School has been going for 22 years. It takes place in our garden so there is a lovely shaded area and a garage to shelter in if it rains. The vets in the Helderberg area have been fantastically supportive.
With my own dog training experience and vet nurse training it was a natural progression to running classes. I have attended seminars and courses, including Ray Coppinger, Hills, and veterinary congresses with behaviour lectures. In 2010 I completed Thinking Pets’ Confi-Pup course to ensure I was offering the most up to date, informed classes possible and appreciate their ongoing training and support.
I believe we never stop learning so I subscribe to several international force-free trainer programmes, such as AbsolutePets, UK, Susan Garrett, Canada, Kikopup, Ian Stone & Zak George, among others.
I am a member of the ThinkingPets Guild SA and the Pet Professional Guild.
