A six week course that will not only cover basic manners and confidence building exercises, but also body language- what our pups are trying to communicate to us, and behaviour- why our pups may be acting the way they are.  My aim is for you to leave with a better understanding of your pup.

You will receive an email after each lesson which will recap the what, why and how we taught each exercise in class so that you can refer back to it and practice at home.

Exercises covered in class will include: recall, loose lead walking, eye contact, hand targets, automatic sits, polite greetings, jumping up, food manners, impulse control, send to a mat, emergency stop and long line handling.

If you are interested in this class but there are currently no available dates showing, then please get in touch and I shall do my best to arrange something for you.



The best puppy classes ever!
Just finished our 6 week puppy class and I cannot praise Nikki enough. The outside setting is amazing and so much nicer than hall training, the follow up emails of what we did in each class is great to go back over and the training has left us really confident. I cannot believe in just 6 lessons how well trained Bella already is. Not only that it has been great fun and we can't wait to start the next course!

It has been a while since we previously owned a pup and had been recommended to use Nikki...we were not disappointed! We did the puppy foundation course and Nikki was very patient with all of us, explained why we were doing things and answered any questions we had. The classes are held outside in a safe, fenced environment which was far better than halls we used with our previous pup! We also were sent an email after each class going over what we had covered, this was brilliant as other family members could read it and then we could all continue training at home consistently. We will definitely be doing the follow on course and I would highly recommend Pawsome partners!

We first met Nikki at Riverside Vets as we were offered 2 puppy sessions for free, from there I had to enrol in her puppy foundation training because she's just brilliant and so knowledgeable. Any issues you have she just knows how to explain the mind of a dog and how we can correct behaviours in a positive way as well as teach them quickly. The course itself was fun and very easy to follow, Nikki emails recaps of the training after each session too which is great for busy people like myself as i can always refer back if I forget how to do things. The training is held at her property outside in a safe fenced area which makes a nice change from halls! I've met a few trainers and Nikki is by the far the best and she's just a lovely person too. We shall be back for more! Thanks again :)

Amazing 6 week foundational training for our puppy. This is not our first puppy, but Nikki's classes are the best we've attended! Knowledgeable, adaptable and so patient with us and Ginny, who now has fantastic basic skills that we can build on. Having emails after each class with written guides to what we learned has been a game changer, meaning we could easily continue training at home. We will be coming back for more as soon as we can!
Abi, James & Ginny
Thank you so much Nikki for all the support you have given us. Goose has come on leaps and bounds in just 6 weeks. Absolutely amazing!

It has been great to attend the puppy pre-course at the vets and the 6 week puppy training course with Nikki. I was having problems with my puppy biting badly. I was finding it very stressful. Nikki taught many skills with enthusiasm and great support to encourage us all that we could teach our dogs how to behave better. Having had dogs all my life I soon learnt that I needed to adopt and learn new skills with my puppy… not least to use loads of treats and praise, praise and praise again…I am so glad to have spent time with Nikki who was so good at explaining everything and helping if necessary with my new puppy..It is amazing that I now have a puppy who does not bite anymore and that everybody loves… Thank you Nikki for your excellent training and encouragement. I would not hesitate to recommend Nikki to anyone who wants to train their puppies and understand them better. The lessons are fun for the puppies and owners and always followed up with a written summary of the weekly lessons.

We’ve loved taking part in the puppy classes. Nikki was fantastic at being very clear when teaching and we’ll be booking a new set of sessions very soon :-)
Thank you so much for having us
Can’t thank Nikki enough for getting us started with puppy training Chester. Have found it really beneficial. Looking forward to continuing what we have started.
Ryan, Paige & Chester
The puppy course really has been beneficial, so many great tips and a start to good confident training. Nikki is extremely helpful, puts everyone at ease and makes the course fun but informative and well worthwhile. Will most certainly be continuing. Thank You Nikki

Nikki's classes take place in a beautiful and well-appointed arena, easy to find and with plenty of parking. Nikki herself is the loveliest person you could hope to meet, and knows her stuff inside and out. We (and our goofy Boxer puppy, Dempsey) can't praise her enough!
James and Ellen
Absolutely brilliant!! Thank you so much Nikki for all the positive training and practical support you have given us over the past few weeks! It has been extremely rewarding to see how well Simon has responded to your training methods, and we have really appreciated the 1 to 1 attention he has been given by you.
It is lovely that you are on hand in between classes with advice if needed and the weekly emails reminding us of what we have learnt and why, have been invaluable!
We have thoroughly enjoyed attending the classes each week and highly recommend you!

Bailey our golden retriever had come I to our lives when we needed him the most .
From the first time we made contact with Nikki she showed me that she was very passionate about looking after puppies needs and moulding their behaviours. Through rewarding and acknowledging good behaviour.
As we had missed the first couple of sessions that Nikki runs at the vets , she invited us to her property to let Bailey get used to finding his way around obstacles and talked to us as to how we could start his training with our everyday lives, a brilliant start to our training relationship with Bailey.
The couple of first visits we had with Nikki were at the vets where she introduced some simple ways on how to deal with Baileys immediate needs and how we can help him adjust to his new surroundings.

We then signed up to ongoing puppy training sessions. Wow Nikki has a wonderful set up at her property where she has dedicated areas for her dog training with ample space to develop their social needs with other puppies.
The course ran for 6 weeks each week Bailey looked forward to going to school at Nikki’s not only was he learning he got treats for doing things we liked. Nikki ensure that we all had some one to one attention with us all to ensure we were comfortable with what we being asked to do and how we reacting to our puppies .
Overall Nikki’s wealth of experience supported everything both Bailey and we learned about helping develop our puppy into a wonderful well behaved member of the family.

Thank you again Nikki for all your support you have given us.
We look forward to our next adventure on Baileys training/behaviour journey.

These classes were absolutely brilliant, we looked forward to them every week. So much was covered and I believe our pup is so well adjusted because of these classes.
Sam and Jessie
what a fantastic class! we are new puppy owners and signed up to attend Nikids 6 week class. Nikki was so welcoming and involved the whole family in the classes. Bella enjoyed all the classes and we learned some valuable training practices to help with understanding the needs of our new additions but also techniques we could use in day to day life to help settle a very excitable Bulldog. We would highly recommend this class and Nikki to any new puppy owners 5*
Signing up to the puppy class was the best thing for Max, myself and hubby. We all had a great time, and Max has become such a lovely boy. We learnt so much during the 6 week course and life with Max, a 5 month old German Shephard puppy with oodles of energy, has become a pleasure. Thank you Nikki, we will be back.
