We are very fortunate to have our classes run by PADS – Dog training, Behaviour Modification and Education.

The Polite Puppies program is the perfect place for your little one to learn, grown, and make new furry friends under the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable trainer, Adele from PADS.

Don’t miss this opportunity to give your puppy the best start to life! Join our Polite Puppies Program and watch them thrive into a sociable, well-mannered, and happy companion.

The program consists of 4 lessons plus 1 lesson with Q&A online via zoom for the humans where we will discuss the health, welfare, guidance, guardianship and compliance of owning a puppy or dog and navigating life with a new puppy.

At the end of the 5 lessons, you and your puppy will have a puppy graduation and will receive a puppy graduation gift and a graduation certificate for completing Polite Puppy School.
