Puppy Preschool

Does your puppy?

  • Have problems with toilet training
  • Cry during the night 
  • Chew furniture 
  • Bite/mouth your hands/feet
  • Jump up on you 
  • Dig holes
  • Bark

If you have ticked one or more of these boxes then we recommend that you consider joining our Puppy Preschool Classes which are held by our resident qualified behavioural trainer, Sylvia.

The imprint period for puppies occurs between the age of 3-18 weeks of life. During this time, it is most important for them to interact and socialise with other puppies, to prevent them from becoming frightened or aggressive towards people and dogs in the future.

Unfortunately, due to their immunity status and vaccination schedule it is unsafe for them to go out in public, so this is where Puppy Preschool classes step in.

About Our Puppy Preschool Classes

Our classes are held in a safe and controlled environment, specially designed for puppies between the ages of 8-14 weeks of age.

In the course we cover many things: including inappropriate chewing, mouthing/ biting, basic manners training, house training, puppy lead walking, parasite prevention, household poisons, puppy socialisation including off lead play, what your dog is telling you with its body language and much more. 

Your puppy only needs to have had its first vaccination and a vet check as well as residing in your home for a minimum of 1 week before attending classes.

As classes are small and personal, to avoid disappointment, call and register your puppy for the next available course as places fill up quickly.

Puppy Preschool Benefits

Puppy preschool can deliver a range of benefits for both the dog and its owner. Some of the key outcomes of puppy preschool may include:

  • Building confidence for both you and your puppy – it’s important for both dogs and their owners to feel confident around other animals and in different situations. At puppy preschool your dog will get to experience new things and socialise with other puppies in a safe environment.
  • Strengthening the bond between you and your puppy – the one-on-one time you spend with your dog at puppy preschool will mean your puppy is creating a primary and special bond with you.
  • Learn or get a refresher on puppy care – even experienced dog owners are likely to appreciate the refresher or find they learn new things when it comes to best practice puppy care.
  • Early intervention – attending puppy preschool means any potential problems can be identified and nipped in the bud early before problem behaviours become entrenched.
  • Set yourself and your puppy up for life – at puppy preschool you will learn basic training techniques that will last a lifetime. You will also find out how to apply similar principles for future training of your dog.
