Puppy Pre-school

There are many benefits to teaching your puppy to be well behaved at an early age. Young puppies are quite able to learn obedience skills, toileting behaviour and social boundaries. All of these things help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.

We provide an effective Puppy Pre-school program for all of the puppies that visit our clinic. With our progressive and positive learning techniques you will:

  • Develop an understanding of normal puppy behaviour.

  • Learn how to read your puppy's body language and respond appropriately.

  • Develop effective techniques for positive behavioural development.

  • Learn important tips about walking in public areas.

  • Understand the need for socialising your puppy.

  • Teach your puppy some important 'do not' lessons

  • Understand important boundaries when playing together.

  • Develop strong bonds between you and your puppy

The most important thing about Puppy Pre-school is 'start early'. Waiting too long can allow behaviour problems to establish which then require more intensive training to overcome.

Our puppy classes run on a Monday night at either 6 or 7pm. The classes run for 6 consecutive weeks. Puppies can enrol from 8-16 weeks of age.

We also offer "Primary Paws" classes which are held on a Tuesday night at 6pm. The classes run for 6 consecutive weeks. These classes are for the older pups aged 16-24 weeks.

Please call our clinic for more information on pricing, start dates and availability.

So start today and call us about enrolling your puppy in our local Puppy Pre-school classes.
