Puppy Pre-School

 

 

What is Puppy Preschool and why do we need it?

 

The crucial early learning and socialisation period for dogs is 8 to 16 weeks of age. For pups in this age group Puppy Preschool gets life started on the right track. Please do Puppy Preschool even if you have previously owned a dog – every pup has different needs and personality and our trainers constantly review and improve the program.

With only 6 puppies in each class, our Puppy Preschool classes provide:

  • Socialisation/interaction - with people and other dogs

  • Toilet training advice - no more 'oops'!

  • Familiarisation with the hospital - making visits less stressful

  • Settling and calming techniques

  • Troubleshooting - addressing any issues such as mouthing/biting

  • Tricks and games

  • Understanding dog psychology

  • General health care advice - diet, exercise, grooming for puppies
