Puppy Pre-School

Puppy pre-school is designed for puppies between 8-14 weeks of age, as this is the peak socialisation and optimal training age. Port Kennedy Veterinary Hospital runs weekly puppy classes aoffering a safe and secure environment for your new puppy to learn and meet new friends. Classes are small and tailored to the needs of you and your puppy – and they are great fun too.

Puppy pre-school is an essential step in allowing your pupy to grow into socialised and friendly adult dog.
