Benefits of Good Training

  • Socialisation & Habituation

    Learning about socialisation and habituation and putting it into practice encourages good behaviour in social situations and being responsive in all environments.

  • Manners

    Includes self-control, encouraging desired behaviours and eliminating unwanted behaviours.

  • What gets rewarded, gets repeated

    Reward-based training; an effective method for training puppies. Using rewards provides a positive experience which in turn will encourage puppies to repeat behaviours that bring rewards.

Course Instructor

Puppy/Dog Training Instructor

Sharon Dix

I have been around dogs since an early age and absolutely love being a dog owner. I am very lucky to have a 7-year old Golden Retriever which my family and I get to share our lives with.

I have helped many, many families to raise their puppies and I love seeing the results from the reliable guidance that I can give. (I am also a valuable resource for family and friends who have puppies and dogs which I don't mind at all!)

Over the years I have become an experienced and qualified Puppy Start Right Instructor specialising in young puppies and am a graduate of the Karen Pryor Academy for Animal Training & Behaviour.

Accredited by Laser Learning Awards (an awarding body recognised by Ofqual and the British Government) I am also accredited in Canine Behaviour and Training.

I am so passionate about puppies being given the best start in life that when COVID-19 affected the way in which in-person puppy training was conducted it was necessary to find other ways to deliver services. As a result of this, I adapted my Puppy PreSchool classes and created 'Raising a Puppy' with Online Puppy PreSchool. I hope you enjoy taking this course as much as I enjoyed making it for you.

Puppy Help

Nat & Family

Being new puppy parents to Max, we had so many unanswered questions.. as well as questions we didn't know we needed to ask! Sharon helped us through every stage of the process; what to expect from our breeder, how to prepare our house and most importantly to us.. how to survive a puppy with two young children! Her course content is so thorough that we felt so much more confident that we were doing what was right for us all. We now have a very happy pup and we're forever grateful.

First-time puppy owner

Lois, Liam & Lexi

Sharon was excellent when we got our puppy, Lexi. From helping us prepare and get everything we needed before she came home, to our first few weeks as puppy parents, to all the ups and downs through to now. She has provided so much support over the last 2 years. We couldn't recommend her and her Puppy PreSchool enough!
