The K9 Academy is run by Renee Rhoades.

The puppy FUNdation courses
Our puppy FUNdation courses are run by Renee at our veterinary hospital in Newport. The classes are held every Tuesday for puppies under six months old, and every Thursday for puppies between six and 12 months old. Both classes start at 6.30pm and will last for an hour, being held over a six week period.
Included in the class is a tour of our veterinary hospital so that we can show your puppies that coming to vets isn’t a scary process.
To attend the course, all puppies must be vaccinated. They must not have any aggressive tendencies.
The cost of the course is £99 with a 10% discount for our Healthy Pet Club members. Each class will have a maximum of six puppies under six months of age, so early booking is advisable.
If you feel your pet could benefit from one to one behavioural sessions, please contact The K9 Academy IOW directly for advice.
