Puppy pre-school is a great way to help your puppy start their journey on the right paw.
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 preschool will help give your puppy the best chance of becoming a controlled, well-behaved, socially accepted adult.
Classes run for 5 weeks and are held at the Aldinga clinic on Monday Nights from 6-7pm and the Willunga Clinic on Wednesday nights from 7-8pm.
