About the Courses

“Puppy Start Right Preschool”


WHO: Open to puppies between 7 and 12 weeks of age when starting
class (ideally finishing at around 16 weeks of age) and all household members involved in the daily activity of the puppy. (Puppies must be started on their vaccination series at least 10 days prior to starting class)

COST: CHF 240 includes: Four 60- minute puppy socialization and training classes, Puppy Start Right coursebook and 5 Course videos by Kenneth and Debbie Martin, treat bag, clicker and once a week: Preschool Puppy Club Socialization Sessions.


WHEN: Saturdays 13.30-14:45 (Preschool Puppy Club: Thursdays 18:30-19:30 Starting 8th February 2018)

Dannegger-Training’s small group courses are organized in such a way that each dog-handler team can work on the exercises simultaneously, thus maximizing training time. Each team gets very individualized attention and, after the lesson, training session review notes are emailed, sometimes with a video attachment, to the clients each week.


Andrea knows that a dog that can “sit”, “down”, “come” and walk nicely on a leash, does not necessarily make a well-behaved pet in the home! That is why many of her lessons involve tips on managing the dog in the house to reduce the frustration of behaviors such as excessive barking, chewing, jumping on guests, just to name a few common complaints.

Andrea also encourages her clients to contact her by email or Whats App with questions and/or videos between sessions to optimize their training at home.
