Puppy Preschools

Puppy Preschool is a fantastic way to create a bond, learn useful tips and socialise your puppy, as well as get your puppy used to visiting the vet clinic.

Puppies learn:

  • How to behave in both human and canine company
  • How to perform fundamental commands such as sit, stay, come here, and heel 

You learn:

  • About healthcare for your pup
  • Key pointers to help your puppy and family have fun together

Each training session is accompanied by easy-to-follow information sheets and advice on how to continue training your puppy at home. We will also do our best to help sort out any behaviour problems that you may be experiencing at home.

What you need to know:

  • The course is divided into four classes held over four consecutive weekly evenings (starting times depend on the clinic)
  • Each class covers both theory and practical activities, and lasts  approximately 1 hour.
  • The cost of attending is $130.00.
  • You also receive a gift pack with food vouchers, flea treatment and more!
  • Your puppy will also receive a graduation certificate on completion of Puppy Preschool. 

To find out more, or to enrol your puppy please contact your nearest clinic.
