Pre-School Prep

Good habits are as hard to break as bad ones

Puppies are impossibly cute (yours in particular) but they also pee and poo a lot, bite anything that looks like it might be fun or just chewy – including you – cry often, and are very demanding of attention.

At the same time, it's important to introduce them to the world, people, other dogs ... Phew ... take a breath.

In this module you'll learn the secret* to building good habits whilst limiting the chaos and still having time for all the fun stuff!


*It's not that secret: you'll soon discover it's a lot to do with managing their environment.

  • Your First Night

The Art & Science
(+ a little bit of magic and lots of love)

I'll be your coach while you train your puppy. These short, practical introductory lessons will help you become the owner your puppy wants you to be!

Puppies, of course, are learning all the time. I'll show you how to tip the balance in favour of the things you want your puppy to learn, helping your puppy make the 'right' choices (... jump up and bark or sit quietly for attention...?)

  Module 2

  • Introduction to Training
  • Lure & Reward
    for quick results
  • Get Rid of the Food Bowl!

Play School

Watch. Do. Teach.

It’s never too soon to start training. In just a few minutes a day, the Play School 14 day program will show you how to teach your puppy through fun games and activities.

The course is specifically designed to fit into your first few weeks together, when you've quite likely set aside time to settle your puppy, while soaking up all the puppy knowledge you can, as fast as you can, before life takes over again!

And, while you and your puppy train together, you'll be building a bond that will last a lifetime.

  • The Name Game
  • Pup's First Words
  • Tug & Fetch
  • Coming When Called
  • Walking

You'll have access to the course for a year, so you're free to take it at a pace that suits you.


"Thank goodness I got in contact. Puppy Home School is fantastic. I have been using what I have learnt – it's very useful, easy to use, and will be invaluable."

Gareth Langdon
Lakshmi — Lurcher x Dachshund

"Vicky understands and loves dogs. Her puppy classes are a must if you ever want to control your dog when it matures. "

Tom Mangold
Duchess — Italian Spinone

"It’s been really helpful. When listening to your advice, I often found myself thinking 'yes, but what if [insert issue] happens' only to find that you then said 'do this' [solution]!"

Jodi Carroll
Ziggy — Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Poodle

"As well as being very reassuring, Vicky was incredibly good at communicating her training methods. Her mantra is: ‘Behaviour that gets rewarded gets repeated’, and that has been the case with Simba. He sits, lies down, doesn’t jump up, comes to the whistle and the voice and is perfectly house-trained. I have started training him to walk on the lead without pulling, but it is early days yet. Vicky has taught me the method and I will follow it to the letter. Her training methods work and Simba is a very happy puppy who likes to please."

Santa Montefiore
Simba – Labrador

"I used Puppy Home School when I first got my pug puppy and couldn't recommend it enough. It gives a very true insight into the reality of owning and training a puppy. The course is really easy to use, it's broken into easily digestible chapters, and as it's fully narrated it's great to have on in the background when you're cooking your dinner or commuting into work! It's also quite funny which kept it light and made it entertaining as well. Would highly recommend for anyone considering getting a puppy!"

Kirsty Chapman
Dotty — Pug

"Puppy Home School has been a great help in the first early weeks of having a puppy. It is laid out in really clear, digestible sections, and the advice is very sensible and balanced. As a new owner, I didn't know anything about puppy training but Puppy Home School has helped me feel more confident — highly recommended."

Hilary Kirkbride
Rory — Cocker Spaniel

"Puppy Home School is the first online resource to visit when you are getting a new puppy! The course is full of advice and information that will make life with your new puppy easier for a good and positive start."
