Good Puppy Academy offers a force free and positive reward based solution to kick start your puppy’s learning journey, catering for your new puppy’s individual personality and learning style.

We took our young dog Archie to puppy classes with Mandy and had a fantastic experience. Every session was great fun and we learnt a lot. Mandy is clearly very knowledgeable and was able to tailor the tasks to suit each dogs needs. We particularly enjoyed the socialisation element in each session (which are monitored so your pup is never out of their depth!), and the opportunity to try new things like low level agility. We had a great time and I think Archie was sad to graduate! Rosie, Tom and Archie – Solihull
It is important that your puppy’s early experiences in new environments are all positive and that your puppy always feels safe and secure so that your puppy develops into a balanced adult dog who can cope with the world around them. You may have had puppy’s before or this may be your first experience so whatever your situation your new puppy and yourself will benefit greatly from modern day training methods that are offered within our class environment. If you are a little unconfident and unsure of what is best and you want to be sure you are doing the most for your new puppy, then Yes! Good Puppy Academy will offer you not only initial obedience commands but many other topics of puppy raising through their critical development stages.
Yes! Good Puppy Academy classes have been carefully planned involving Game Based Training (GBT). Puppies learn best and retain information through having fun and gaining an inner confidence, so within our GBT games your puppy and you will not only have a great time, you and your puppy will be starting to place those all important initial bonding blocks down for the future. Positive Puppy is a well structured programme to help your puppy gain self confidence to want to choose the correct behaviour. It’s after all our job to guide them to make correct choices.
Yes! Good Puppy Academy is run by fully qualified and insured Canine Behaviourist & Experienced Trainer
AMAZING! I learnt so much that I didn’t know, I now have a better understanding of what to do with my Bella, and she had a lot of fun too! Mandy is a lovely person and made things easy for me to understand and was very calm and patient. Absolutely would recommend. Thank you Mandy for your help! Marietta & Bella
Mandy was GREAT! We did some standard obedience work: sit, stay, down, stand and recall. Mandy gave me some really good advise about prevention of certain behaviours (biting etc). I learnt a lot and Mandy made everything so easy to understand. I would definitely recommend! Dhina & Bambi
Mandy’s patience, knowledge and methods are excellent. Maisie has learnt (and is still learning) so much from Mandy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mandy and would give more than 5 stars if it were possible. Thank you Mandy. Bob & Maisie
