Puppy Preschool

Puppy Preschool is a series of 4, weekly classes that will help you and your puppy understand each other better. Dogs communicate differently from people, and without understanding this difference, training can be very difficult and can lead to unwanted problem behaviours later in life.

We want your puppy to love communicating with you in a fun and safe way.

We also know that there is a critical period in a puppy’s development known as the Socialisation Period where if puppies are not safely exposed to other puppies, they do not develop normal canine social skills. We want to provide this safe environment for puppies to learn these social skills. Some puppies can make life-long friends at Puppy Preschool!

The classes will cover lots of information and training techniques. Of course, in only 1 month, your puppy will not have thoroughly learned every obedience command, but they will have the basics to make excellent long-term progress. You will have the skills and knowledge on how to provide this ongoing training.

The Skills we will help You Teach Your Puppy:

Basic Manners:

  • Sit

  • Drop

  • Come

  • Heel

  • Stay

This class is run by our lovely Veterinary Nurse, Kate under the guidance of qualified Behaviour Veterinarian, Dr Lynn Mathison, B.V.Sc (Hons), MANZCVS (Veterinary Behaviour), so we will provide the most up to date understanding of the science behind how dogs learn and interpret the world around them.
