Get your puppy started off on the right paw!
Owning a puppy is a huge responsibility! Your puppy is dependent on you for many things including shelter, food and companionship. In addition to these basic needs you are responsible for your puppy's behaviour and obedience training. If done properly your puppy will grow into a happy and healthy adult dog with whom you can enjoy years together...
Why Come To Puppy Pre-School?
Many canine behavioural studies have shown that the most vital stage of a puppy's development occurs between the ages of 8 and 16 weeks. It is during this time that puppies learn many of their personality traits that they display later in life. Socialisation of puppies is fundamental for them to develop into happier, better adjusted dogs that make much more pleasant pets.
Puppy Pre-School is a program of classes aimed at providing you with the necessary tools to socialise and train your puppy in a rewarding and positive manner. It allows puppies of similar ages to interact in a safe, controlled environment under the direction of trained and experienced staff. Our Puppy Pre-School is run by Sit Stay Dog School.
Positive reinforcement training techniques and basic obedience commands such as sit, drop, come and stay are taught. You will also get help with common doggy dilemmas such digging, jumping, biting, barking and toilet training.
Other topics covered in the sessions include life decisions (de-sexing, microchipping, and parasite control), nutrition, walking equipment, toys for puppies and advice for on-going training of your puppy.
When Are Puppy School Classes Held?
The course consists of five 1-hour fun and informative sessions held over 5 weeks. Puppy School is held on Tuesday nights at 7.00pm as well as classes on Sundays. All breeds of puppies are welcome but they must be aged between 8 and 16 weeks to commence the course and they must have received their first vaccination.
We also encourage family members, including children (over 7 years) to attend the classes to learn the techniques for socialising and training your puppy.
▸ Cost is $195 for the 5 week course
