Puppy Pre-school

There are many benefits to teaching your puppy to be well behaved at an early age. Young puppies are quite able to learn obedience skills, toileting behaviour and social boundaries. All of these things help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.
 
We provide an effective Puppy Pre-school program for all of the puppies that visit our clinic. With our progressive and positive learning techniques you will:
 

  • Develop an understanding of normal puppy behaviour.
  • Learn how to read your puppy's body language and respond appropriately.
  • Develop effective techniques for positive behavioural development.
  • Learn important tips about walking in public areas.
  • Understand the need for socialising your puppy.
  • Teach your puppy some important 'do not' lessons
  • Understand important boundaries when playing together.
  • Develop strong bonds between you and your puppy

  The most important thing about Puppy Pre-school is 'start early'. Waiting too long can allow behaviour problems to establish which then require more intensive training to overcome.

Our Puppy Pre-school is run by accredited Delta Society instructors and are held at the practice on a Saturday afternoon.

The classes run over a 4 week period and your puppy should be  8-16 weeks of age and have had at least one vaccination to attend the class.  Gentle reward based methods are used and subjects covered include: 

House training Bite inhibition
Sit Lie down
Come when called Saftely around the food bowl
Stay Stop that!
How to be a good leader And more....
