Puppy Preschool


Puppy Preschool classes are a fun way to socialise your puppy with both humans and with other puppies of a similar age.

Puppy Preschool includes five sessions, each session is an hour in duration. During this time puppies will be given the opportunity to learn good social skills by interacting and playing with each other. We will also show you positive reinforcement techniques for training your puppy and helping it to grow into the adult dog you want it to be.

During the classes, different aspects of puppy care will also be discussed, some of these include: toilet training, weight and diet, foods to avoid, dental health, toilet training, grooming, parasite control, vaccinations, body language, handling, chewing, mouthing, problem behaviours and more. We also give clients a tour of the clinic on the first night.

Puppies have a peak socialisation period between the age of 3 – 12 weeks. During this time what they experience will have a great effect on behaviour they may develop as they mature. For this reason puppies need to interact with other puppies and people during this socialisation period.

Just like human children, puppies interact with adults differently that they do with puppies who are their own age, meaning that in order to learn all the right social skills it is important their socialisation during this time involves lots of play with puppies their own age. Puppy Preschool is about providing a safe, supervised environment where the puppies can interact with other puppies and with unfamiliar people, outside of their own family.
