Puppy Pre-School

Classes are currently being held online via Zoom

Puppies are incredibly impressionable during the first few months of their lives.
In fact, they have a proven critical learning phase, also known as their imprinting period, which generally lasts from birth until about 16 weeks of age (give or take a few weeks depending on the breed).

It is imperative to expose your puppy to everything life has to offer during this time in order to build a confident, happy-go-lucky, well-rounded, adult dog.
Puppy training classes will set you up early with the right tools and tips on how to do this successfully.

Our puppy classes provide a happy and safe environment in which your puppy will have fun, learn basic commands, and have great experiences with humans and other dogs, all of which are vital at this time.

Puppies must be aged between 8-14 weeks of age and have had at least one puppy vaccination to attend.

During our classes they will learn:

Sit, Come when called, Stay, Lie Down, Leave things alone, relax.
We also cover common problem issues such as: jumping, chewing and toilet training.

Key topics we also discuss include:

-Socialisation: The difference between 'good' and 'bad' socialisation
-How to safely introduce your puppy to other dogs
-Independence exercises to help them cope with being on their own
-Your puppy's body language and what he is trying to tell you
-How your dog thinks and learns
-Health and wellbeing (including diet and desexing)
