Your new puppy is home! You’re very excited, and so are the kids. But you know (or quickly realise!) that your puppy needs some proper training if he’s to fit in with your family, your lifestyle and your time.
He just doesn’t listen!
He’s biting the children!
He doesn’t seem to understand the word ‘No’!
A note from our Founder, Head Behaviourist, internationally renowned lecturer
and best selling author, Sarah Whitehead.
At the Clever Dog Company we understand that nearly all of what puppies do in their first weeks at home is perfectly normal, but with 25 years’ behavioural expertise under our belts, we also know that it can be challenging – in fact, it’s like having an exuberant toddler in the house!
The first weeks of your puppy’s life with you are a critical time. This is where behaviour patterns are laid down for life – and you owe it to yourself and your family to make sure that the next decade or so with your new dog are wonderful – not full of stress and heartache.
For this reason, we want to help you get off to the greatest start possible! While classes are good for teaching your pup to train around distractions and to build social skills with other dogs, there are some very distinct reasons why we strongly recommend a bespoke training course – created just for you and your puppy, delivered in your own home (and out and about – in the park for example) to make sure that your training really works!
Our Clever Dog Method trainers don’t just work with you in a class environment. They’ll come to your home, listen to what you’d like to achieve (even if it’s just a few minutes of peace and quiet a day!) then they’ll craft the perfect training plan for you and your puppy.
Take a look at our programmes below, they're purpose built to best support you and your dog, just pop your details in to chat with one of our friendly team today.

At 14 weeks she had learnt the commands sit, lie down, touch, high five and is great at recall. He helped us to understand our new puppy and has helped us to make her a very happy, friendly little girl!
He has been a wonderful trainer and an extremely trust-worthy puppy sitter too - and she had always learnt a bonus trick by the time we got home!
I couldn’t recommend John high enough!
What a refreshing delight it is to have a trainer who really understands both mine and my dogs needs, who comes to our home and teaches us as a family how best we can help our new rescue dog to live without fear.
He has really transformed since we began the 1:1 programme. He is growing in confidence each day and it's wonderful to watch knowing that we are also doing all the right things to help him.
As you’d expect, all programmes are bespoke, focusing on your priorities,
but typically might include specific help with:
Over-excitability with children
And essential training:
Respond to your name
Sit and Down

Come when called
Walk nicely on the lead
Play nicely and drop the toy when asked
Settle down (so you can have a moment's peace!)
