Smile Trainer Recommendations

We have a 11.5 week old puppy (Pug X Cavachon) and I want to take him to puppy training classes. He's had his first vaccination and we'll be ready for this in about 3 weeks time so I want to find a class.

I'm ultimately looking for my Alfie to have character but to not be a handful and stressful to look after, I want him to behave around people/children and in public, included off the lead walks

What should I be looking for in a class?
How can I tell good from bad trainers/classes?

Can anyone recommend a class in the Swindon area?

Can't help you with a trainer in your area, sorry! Definitely look for a trainer that focuses on positive reinforcement and reward-based training. I know there are a lot of puppy obedience classes here, so I wouldn't think it would be super hard to find something like that if you're not in a rural area.
