Cunningshot Dog Sports

Puppy Sessions:

'My puppy is biting me, how often do I feed my puppy, when can I start training, how much sleep should my puppy have, how do I crate train' these are just some of the most commonly asked question. Truthfully, there is no right or wrong way to bring up a puppy every home, family and puppy is unique and therefor training needs to match this. 


Good breeders should have started the shaping of basic puppy manners, toilet training and socialisation from day 1, at 8 weeks when you bring your newest edition home you are already training even if you may not realise it. Cunningshot Dog Sports aims to teach you all of the necessary tools to be able to start your puppy off correctly. Training starts with us as early as you would like, however, it is recommended to start some form of classes as early as possible to help shape good manners and, in turn, a well rounded and good character gundog. 

Puppy Classes:

Puppy One to Ones: 

Sometimes it may be more appropriate to start with a one to one before placing a puppy in a group class. If the puppy is under 4 months old then it may be that the one to one runs only for half an hour instead of the full one hour session as not all puppies can concentrate for that long.
