Research shows that you can make or break a puppy from the age of 6-18 weeks of age. Unfortunately, a lot of people wait until their puppy has severe social problems like barking, jumping up, fear of strangers/other dogs or biting before they start training or seek professional help. It is crucial that you train your pup now to fit into society and our Puppy Preschool classes are a great place to start!
The importance of Puppy School
Your new puppy won’t know your house rules immediately. In Puppy School we will show you how to teach your pup the correct place to urinate, the correct things to chew, the appropriate time to bark, the way they should greet guests and the difference between play time and time to settle down.
Socialisation is crucial even if you have another dog at home. At our classes, we will teach your pup how to behave around other dogs. Pups have not been socialised often grow up to fear other dogsand show agression towards them. These dogs can not be taken out to the park or for a walk because they don’t get along with others. These little things mean the world to your dog and Puppy School is a safe environment to start teaching them to love playing with other dogs, so you can both enjoy outings together.
