After the most important choice of choosing your puppy the next is setting off on the right foot with a great puppy class. Yes! Good Puppy Academy offers a great learning experience for any parent of new puppy in offering your puppy fun and engaged early learning in life skills, and to equip you with the fundamental knowledge to have a great skill set to train your dog through life as well as puppyhood.

Your puppy may be an optimistic character by nature full of bounce and vigor, or possibly more on the pessimistic side a little more wary and conservative about new things. At Yes! Good Puppy Academy we understand every puppy is unique.

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.  Whatever your puppy’s character we aim to bring out the best in your puppy through calm, thoughtful and balanced game based training. Academy puppies cannot wait to get into class!

Highly recommend Mandy and her team, we’ve really enjoyed our first course of puppy classes the boys have learned so much and had loads of fun! Looking forward to Youth Club

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!

Thank you Mandy and the team for the last six weeks of Puppy School! Not only did Poppy have a fantastic time with all the other pups but she has learnt lots of the essential commands and really learnt to listen to us. A fab course and would highly recommend for anyone with a new puppy.

This is the second time we have used Yes! Good dog with Mandy. Firstly with our adult dog with a 1 to 1 session and now positive puppy weekly training with our puppy Chester. He has learnt so much! And had fun along the way. Everything taught at puppy class can be used out in the real world which we found very useful. We also loved that training would be altered slightly for each puppy to match their personality type. If we struggled with anything the team were always happy to help us individually until we got there.
The whole experience has been great, always good fun and positive, would highly recommend and looking forward to scent work
