Training your puppy is key
Our Puppy School
Has your puppy got you chasing your tail?
Do you want a well-behaved pooch? One who toilets outdoors, only chews their toys and leaves forbidden food and human possessions alone?
Do you want a sociable doggy pal who can be taken anywhere without a worry? To cafes, to the vet, to the groomer, to the dog park and to friends’ houses?
Do you want a calm canine who sits to greet people, walks nicely down the street and goes to a spot in the home to entertain themselves?
Yes, yes, yes and yes!
Then our puppy courses for dogs up to 5 months of age are for you!
Puppy Training Classes
Targeted for puppies from 8 to 14 weeks (at the start of the course), puppy pre-school is intended to help socialise your puppy to many things they will encounter throughout their life.
Puppy pre-school not only guides your puppy towards learning that the world is a positive place, but also assists in teaching your puppy the rules you want your puppy to understand and the behaviours that are important for day to day living with people.
Targeted for puppies from 14 to 22 weeks (at the start of the course), Canine Kindergarten is intended to give you the tools to guide you and your puppy through the troublesome teens (which for dogs begins from 4.5 months of age).
Canine Kindergarten is also a continuation of socialisation.
