Puppies can start pre-school  at a young age. They are able to learn behaviours such as toilet training, obedience and social boundaries when they are only a few months old. Most pre-schools will allow puppies to attend after they have received their second round of vaccinations.

Puppy pre-school can assist in teaching positive training techniques. This will allow you to:

  • Get a reasonable understanding of normal puppy behaviour
  • Read and respond to your puppy’s body language appropriately
  • Get tips on walking your dog in public spaces
  • Gain effective techniques for positive behavioural improvement
  • Help your puppy socialise with other animals
  • Teach your pup some of the “do nots”
  • Teach you how to set boundaries when playing
  • Improve the bond between you and your little pet

Effective training will help make a better relationship between you and your dog. Start early to avoid bad habits becoming engrained and needing more intensive training to overcome.

Puppy Preschool

Puppies have a critical window for socialisation during 8 – 16 weeks and it is essential that puppy owners adequately socialise and train their puppy during this time. Everything a puppy experiences ( or doesnt experience ) will contribute in shaping them as an adult dog and how they respond to their environment.  Puppy pre-school helps to build confidence, focus and a positive bond between puppies and their owners.
