SCHOOL FOR PUPPIES
and their humans
This course is reserved for dogs aged between 8 and 14 weeks at the beginning of the course !!!!
For dogs over 4 months I can only propose individual lessons to learn the Basics and to attend the OPEN GROUP course later on. But in this group course we do not let the dogs play.
1 first individual interview of one hour with the puppy
(during the week)
4 group lessons of 45 minutes
2 individual lessons of 45-50 minutes (during the week)
+ Handouts of all exercises
+ Answering questions by email
In the 2 individual lessons we see the exercises recall, loose leash.
The 2 individual lessons must be done within the 4 weeks in which the group courses take place, otherwise the lessons expire (no money back).
PRICE: 270 euros
(233.77 Euros + 17% TVA)
If you want to have questions answered before the puppy arrives at your home, we can set an additional appointment not provided in the puppy package (either by phone or live at the training facility)
30 minutes = 40 Euros
45 minutes = 60 Euros
From the end of October to the end of January, last appointment at 4pm.
From February to the end of March, last appointment at 5:00 p.m.
From April to October, last appointment at 5.45 p.m.
Dates in the week from Tuesday to Thursday.

With targeted exercises, we will teach your puppy the most important basics to feel good in life.
Teaching Sit, Down, Stay at this period is not the most important.
Please note that recall and walking on a loose leash are not learned in group courses. Only in the individual lessons.
Who is the course for?
This course is only suitable for people who
- want to live harmoniously with your puppy from the start
- want their puppy to trust them one hundred percent
- have no desire for coercion and violence
- want to have fun while training your puppy
- fed up with nonsensical and / or brutal advice
- are willing to learn how positive training works
- have no problem rewarding the puppy with regular treats
This puppy course is not suitable, though
- You are not ready to learn anything new
- you are not interested in an education without violence, punishment and psychological pressure
- If you'd rather yell and jerk at your puppy
- You are not ready to reward your puppy for doing something right
- You think that it is enough to come to the course once a week and not want to do anything else
Your puppy can come to the dog school from 8 weeks. He only needs his 1st vaccination. You don't have to wait until the puppy has all the vaccinations, otherwise you will have missed the whole socialization phase. As a veterinarian for 18 years, I would not offer puppy classes if it was a sanitary risk to your pup. We live in Luxembourg and not in a country with street dogs where the risk of viral infections is much higher. The risk of behavioral problems is much greater than the risk of infection.
PLEASE DISCUSS THIS WITH YOUR VET.
Lately, places in the puppy school have been reserved weeks in advance and then canceled the day before. As a result, other puppies have no place. Places canceled at such short notice can no longer be occupied, which also means financial losses for the dog school. Therefore I have to fix an advance payment of 50% of the price from 2021 when registering so that a place can be reserved. This prepayment can be refunded if canceled 2 weeks before the start of the course at the latest. Thereafter, there will be no refund if participation is canceled less than a week before the start of the course. If an initial interview has taken place, this will be charged at 80 euros.
To ensure the socialization of the puppy, there will be a puppy group with a maximum of 5-6 puppies.
Because of the ongoing corona measures, a maximum of 2 people can come to the course with the puppy.
The group courses must be done 4 times in a row. If you miss a group course, it cannot be made up for. We therefore ask you to organize yourself so that you can come to the group 4 times on Saturday. Money is also non-refundable if you miss a group lesson.
There are also no refunds if you decide not to take the course anymore.
Please also plan in autumn / winter that a group course can be canceled due to bad weather and that the course can take a week longer or the course may be rescheduled on a Sunday.
The courses can also take place in other places, such as in the forest.
After the puppy school you can continue on to the OPEN GROUP course. You will receive more information about this after the puppy school. There are currently no fixed teenage groups. There are a lot of young dogs in the OPEN GROUP course. The course is more flexible. You don't have to come every weekend. This course always takes place on Sunday morning.
