Welcome to Pippin Pets Dog Training
Important update – Puppy Classes:
We know that early puppy life skills training is essential, so following the government guidelines, we can offer our popular puppy training in person/online.
We will only run our classes in accordance with the CFSG/DEFRA advice – currently in Tier 2, small group classes can happen outdoors. Should the regulations change (such as Tier restrictions/lockdowns), trainer having to self isolate (and we are not mingling much so we can keep working) AND there is no adverse winter weather that will affect the welfare of your puppy when out in our field, then the classes will revert to online as appropriate where the training will continue in your own home. When you sign up to our classes, you agree that the delivery of the training could be a mixture of online/in person as needed. Our terms of business including our cancellation policy still applies.
Look on the WHAT I OFFER page and scroll down to the event list to check all the start dates of our courses and availability. We will be releasing new 2021 dates soon
At Pippin Pets Dog Training your dogs’ education journey is important, from the very start with arriving at your home and settling in, through puppy training and how to navigate the world, to sports and activities to keep their brains and body busy throughout their lives.
We believe the best relationship you can have is one based on trust, built by training without force, fear or pain. We fully subscribe to reward based training that is kind, effective and inclusive for all the family to get involved in.
We provide quality coaching to you through our 121 sessions giving a personalised programme of activities either in your home or at your local walking areas – the places where the training counts.
Pippin Pets Dog Training also run classes south of Guildford (Surrey) to cover the local area and we limit the intake to small groups only so you get time and attention to help you with the new skills for your dog. We have an outdoor venue in Shamley Green, and will be resuming indoor classes in Bramley/Chilworth in due course.
We highly recommend the training given by Jo. She made everyone feel at ease when we arrived, we were well social distanced, there was plenty of time given to all the different exercises and we can continue the training at home. The training was well explained and interactive as far as possible. A really nice touch was for the dogs to receive a certificate and rosette to say they had completed the training, we thought this showed real care.
After joining the online puppy class during lockdown with Pippin Pets, we took part in the online scent training course. Otis has loved the course and I feel it has given him more confidence. The scenting games and techniques we have learnt are going to give us so much fun improving his and our skills.
I would like to thank Jo so much for her amazing training skills. I have never met someone who understands dogs so well. Her patience is second to none. She is reliable, kind, thoughtful and gave me the confidence to implement the training methods she suggested. I would not hesitate to recommend.
We just wanted to say thank you so much for today at the Loose Lead Walking Workshop!It was the most friendly and informative dog training workshop we have ever been to and we all learnt so much – we know that Maggie really enjoyed it too!
We contacted Jo at Pippin Pets after we re-homed a one year old Dachshund. We didn’t know too much of the behavioural history or what training had been completed in the past. With Jo’s help we were able to address a few little issues and begin building on his training, session by session. Each lesson was informative and tailored to our specific needs. We now have a very happy, well behaved little dog who is a great addition to our family. Would definitely highly recommend Pippin Pets.
Jo was great at helping me to not feel so overwhelmed by this new born toddler, particularly with advising on toilet training! Jo is very calm and has bundles of knowledge that she imparts at just the right level and pace in order for it to stick! I’d definitely recommend the one to one at home training, and now we are continuing to practice what we’ve learned so far.
Really enjoyed our 8 weeks of Beginners Scentwork. Such a lovely relaxing way to spend an hour on Saturday morning. Jo was super helpful and encouraging and it was lovely to see how all the dogs improved over the weeks. A lovely supportive atmosphere and I would highly recommend Jo as a first stop into scentwork training.
