Real life puppy classes in North London
We offer real life training classes in real environments, which deal with real situations that may occur when you are out and about with your puppy.
Get training notes and videos the week before the class, so you can practise the techniques. Then when you turn up we can fine tune what you have been doing and apply it to the real world.
If you don’t do the work you will not see the results.
Yes we do train in all weathers, there is no wrong weather just wrong clothing.
We are here to guide you and you puppy through learning vital early-stage skills, to set you up for a great life together. Here is a list of just some of the things we will look to cover:

Puppy Classes FAQ
Why Luke's Dog School?
When can I bring my puppy?
To get the most out of the class we recommend you bring your puppy from the moment they can safely go out and about and mingle with other dogs.
Till then we can arrange 1-2-1s to ensure you don’t miss out on this crucial stage in their life
Does my dog have to be vaccinated?
We don’t ask to see proof of vaccinations to attend our classes, but we do ask that they are fit and healthy, and it is in your interest to have them protected against any common diseases that the dog population in their area may have.
How many dogs do you have per class?
We have up to 4 dogs per class to ensure you get the attention you need.
Is my dog too young or too old?
The puppy class is 6 months & younger, the teenage class is 7 – 18 months & all other classes and workshops are for all ages.
My dog is quite nervous/scared, would classes help?
If your dog is not completely comfortable around strangers or other dogs then it is best to contact us first to discuss this.
Do you cover my area?
The great thing about classes is that you come to us, so as long as you are happy to come, we are happy to have you.
How much is it?
Scroll to the bottom of the page for class prices.
Do I need to be involved in the training?
Absolutely, we work with you and coach you to train your dog, so when you leave you can dive straight in and keep the training going.
Where does the training take place?
The classes take place in various real locations across North London, for example:
One is in and around Barnet / Finchley / Mill Hill and the other is Hampstead / Highgate / HGS.
How do I book and then what happens?
You can see and book for all our available classes through our website under the class/workshop page. Once you have booked and paid you will receive a welcome email with all the details for that specific class.
When are the classes?
Scroll to the bottom of the page for class times available
How long will I have to wait?
We try to run classes as often as possible so that you never have to wait that long before starting.
Can I bring my family/friends?
It is very important that everyone is consistent with your dog’s training, and that is why we allow up to three people per dog to the class.
What if I miss a session or my dog is ill or on heat?
It is very important if your dog is unwell or on heat that you don’t bring them to class, because they may make other dogs ill and they will not be in good condition for learning. You are still welcome to attend to listen and see what we are doing. We also email notes after every session so you can continue the training at home; where the results are made.
Are the classes refundable?
No, the classes are non-refundable.

fantastic trainer with a calm manner
“Luke is a fantastic trainer, his calm manner and positive reinforcement is a breath of fresh air. You can tell he just loves dogs and they respond so well to him.
Monty is our first family puppy and Luke instilled confidence in us and gave us easy-to-follow techniques that we have put into practice. We highly recommend him!!”
