Dog Training Classes

Puppy Pre-School and General Obedience. All classes run by qualified staff. Classes coming soon!

At Holistic Paws=Waggy Tails we offer Puppy Pre-school and general dog obedience training classes. We know the key to creating a confident, well mannered adult dog, begins with Puppy Training.  And for those juvenile and older dogs consolidating the basic skills and proofing behaviours outside the home environment is the next step.  Training and having fun with your dog never stops – it is a lifetime investment!

Puppy Preschool will resume late March/early April.  Obedience classes TBA.

puppy pre-school

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 Monday evenings) and is for puppies aged 8 – 16 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.

Class Schedule – 2024 (TBC)

general obedience classes

General dog or puppy obedience classes are important for your furry friend as well as you to clearly communicate with each other. So, if you are dog owner you must enroll into our dog obedience classes in Perth to enjoy a one of a kind bonding experience with your puppy. Our dog obedience training classes include positive reinforcement techniques that create a strong bond based on trust and cooperation.

Your furry friend is like a small child who needs a little bit of care and attention to learn what is best for them. Dog obedience classes in Perth are specifically built on the basics of manners & obedience skills and are recommended for dogs 16 weeks and over.

These puppy obedience training classes run for six weeks (normally Saturday mornings 9.30am-10.30am) and focus on skills such as extended downs/stay, recall, leave it, loose lead walking vs heel, meet and greets with other dogs/people, off-lead games, enrichment activities for the home and helping with any behavioural problems your dog may be demonstrating. It includes visits to the park to experience training in a more stimulating environment.
