About Our School
My Puppy School has been going for 15 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’ve attended a lot of 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.
