We pride ourselves on providing one of the most comprehensive and thorough puppy classes in South Australia.

Benefits of Puppy Pre-School

Puppies have a ‘socialisation' period between 3-14 weeks of age, where they need to have positive experiences with other dogs, people, children and new places.

Any good or bad experiences during this sensitive period can have significant life long effects on your dog's behaviour.

Puppy pre-school is of great benefit to all puppies, and is strongly recommended to help your puppy start off on the 'right paw'. It will give your puppy the best chance of becoming a controlled well-behaved socially accepted adult.

 

Aims of Puppy Pre-School

Socialisation with other puppies and people in a safe and controlled manner.

To identify behavioural problems at an early age.

To teach basic training methods using reward based training.

To teach your puppy ‘calm' behaviour.

Education on normal puppy development and dog behaviour.

To help with any problems you may be experiencing.

To help make trips to the vet more enjoyable.

And most importantly to HAVE LOTS OF FUN WITH YOUR PUPPY!
