Puppy School
Designed for pups 8-16 weeks of age

A wonderful introduction to life experiences, socialisation and basic requests (sit, drop, stay, recall). At this time in your pup's life it is critical that he become familiar with different sounds, that he gets to learn how to play appropriately and gets to meet a variety of people. What better way to do this than training in a safe environment with pups of a similar age?

All of our classes are small to provide you with the best training possible - ensuring maximum attention to each and every pup and their human companions in a controlled, positive environment - it is all about quality rather than quantity in respect to a pup's happy and confident development. Bookings are essential to hold your place.

Puppy class covers basic skills, how to manage typical puppy behaviours with instruction on basic training, handling, grooming and preventative healthcare. Puppies are taught to be calm during training sessions. The play sessions are closely monitored so that the pups learn how to play and interact politely.  They also provide opportunity for the human students to learn how to identify what is appropriate and safe play.

You will receive experienced advice, weekly handouts, your own manual regarding responsible ownership and behaviour modification, an e-book to help you and your puppy through life's early stages and phone and email support during this time.

You may also want to consider a personal home consultation at this time in your pup's life. This is an excellent way to set your pup up for life; training in the environment your pup is spending the majority of his time: toileting, playing with the cat, walking on lead, safety and any issues pertinent to your household. These sessions run for 1.5-2 hours in length at a fee of $190 and include relevant written training information; with follow up to see how you are going and if you have any concerns.
