Most Vets will tell you that Puppy pre-school is an important part of your new puppy’s social development. And we couldn’t agree more! Up to 16 weeks of age your puppy’s brain is like a sponge, absorbing all the sights, sounds, smells etc. of their new environment. It is also when their curiosity outweighs their fear, making it a critical time to help them adjust to their new pack (your family) and the human world.
Puppy Pre-school runs for 4 weeks (normally Tuesday or Wednesday evenings) and is for puppies aged 8 – 15 weeks. Puppy Pre-School focuses on the basics with the emphasis on socialisation and helping your puppy adjust to their new home and wider environment. It also about helping you the owner with any concerns or problems you may be experiencing. Life with a new puppy can be a challenge for owners as well. Topics include toilet training, mouthing, jumping, digging, first aid, nutrition options, vet and grooming desensitisation tips etc. Your puppy will also be introduced to some basic obedience skills such as sit, down and stay.
