Welcome to puppy school

Believe it or not your pup has it in them to be well-behaved, calm and easy to care for. Most owners struggle with their new addition to the family and even if you have had a dog in the past it is easy to forget how difficult those initial puppy months can be.

Maybe you already have an adorable, sweet puppy and you want to start them off the right paw in life. No matter your reasons you have come to the right place.

Agility Classes

Here at Pets2impress we also offer a fun agility program to help give your dog some much needed stimulation and fun. Agility has many benefits. Some of these include: Burning of energy, helping conquer boredom, an increase in self esteem for any nervous or anxious dogs, an increase in awareness and alertness, an increase in health and fitness, increased trust and confidence, improved basic commands and flexibility. As well as being great fun it also helps improve the bond between you and your dog.

We offer sessions the first and last Saturday of each month between 10am – 11am at our daycare centre (Unit 4, Mitre Place, South Shields, NE33 5BD), where you and your dog can make full use of the equipment and have all of the help and advice required from one of our trainers. This is a fantastic way to spice up your dog’s day by offering them the important mental stimulation they need as well as being great fun. In order to attend your dog must be over 6 months of age, fully vaccinated and they must not have any health issues preventing them from doing agility. To book a place please give us a call on 0191 4541317 / 07869502299.

If you feel that your dog wouldn’t be comfortable doing Agility with other dogs, we also offer 1-1 Agility training.
