The Principle Aims of Puppy Preschool

Many behavioural problems we see with dogs is from isolation and inadequate training during the sensitive first few months of a pup’s life. Puppy school aims to help prevent these behaviour problems, educate owners on all aspects of raising a puppy and then living with a dog in the family, and establish a closer bond with your dog.

  • To educate owners on all aspects of puppy development, pet care and living with a dog in the family
  • To help make trips to the vet more enjoyable for dogs, owners and veterinary staff!
  • To get puppies off to a good start so that they become controlled, well behaved and socially acceptable adults
  • To teach good manners to dogs so that they can live happier lives
