Puppy Pre-School is an essential first step to developing a family friendly pet! The first 8 to 18 weeks of age are not only a chaotic time for new puppy owners but also a critical developmental period for young dogs. This is the time when pups naturally start exploring the world. They are curious and open to new situations and experiences – this is the time when they are most impressionable in regards to training.
Two of our registered nurses, Sarah and Bri, run regular puppy school classes at the Success Vet Hospital.
It’s a fun and interactive 4 week course with a focus on socialisation, combined with information for new puppy owners. We focus on methods of encouragement and rewarding correct behaviour with praise, food or games rather than punishing or correcting undesirable behaviour. Sarah and Bri will help you on the way to raising a well-adjusted and obedient dog.
Topics covered by puppy preschool at Success Vet Hospital include:
- Toilet training your new puppy
- Solving destructive behaviours
- Basic dog training: Sit, Stay, Come, Drop.
- Puppies love playing with other puppies and learn to love the Success Vet Hospital!
Our comprehensive 4 week new puppy training course is an affordable $88.
