Our classes are the perfect way to get your puppy on the right track to becoming a happy and well-adjusted member of the family. Puppies develop quickly so get in early to help them learn about their world and the other people and dogs surrounding them. Puppy Preschool is designed to take advantage of the critical learning period between 8-16 weeks by using a fun and interactive course that covers the essentials in supporting you to raise your puppy.
Through using only positive reward-based training methods, our experienced team will teach you how to understand behaviour and how to train. We cover the puppy basics such as sit, down, stay, leave it, walk nicely on a leash and come when called, but mainly discuss and demonstrate how to have a calm, well mannered dog with impulse control so that we can set them up for success in all that life throws at them. We also guide owners through behavior management, and prevention of unwanted or problem behaviours and give additional support over the phone and email.
Our puppy classes offer a controlled environment for puppies to have positive experiences around other puppies of all breeds and sizes, different people, and an array of new sounds, smells and activities.
