Our puppy preschool will teach your new family member about basic obedience as well as promoting safe and healthy socialisation so that your pup learns to be a polite canine citizen.
Saturday classes available
Welcome to puppy school! This week is all about introducing ourselves and introducing you to all things puppy. This week, we spend time answering your most pressing questions whilst your puppies learn to chill out and observe the world around them! We will cover things like toilet training, puppy-proofing, biting and chewing, home-alone time, jumping and barking.
Week Two is all about bravery! Young puppies are constantly learning new things about the world around them, and it is our job to help them learn how to encounter new things without feeling frightened. This week puppies will explore a fun exposure setup full of lots of things which can sometimes be a bit scary! We teach you how to introduce your puppy to novel objects, how to encourage and reward bravery and how to support your puppies when they feel afraid!
Week Three is where we focus on teaching puppies new behaviours! We learn how to use a clicker to communicate with our puppies and how to use a technique called luring to get them to move into different positions! Understanding these two skills are so important for us to be effective and kind communicators to our dogs throughout their life, and can help us teach them a whole heap of new and exciting things! The training and trick world is your oyster!
In our final week, we work on some fun recall games and talk to you about what to expect during the next developmental stage - teenagers! It’s also Graduation Week! Saving the best for last, each puppy will receive a pawsonalied graduation certificate, a graduation photo opportunity, a goodie bag and a voucher for a daycare session.
