Have you recently purchased a puppy? If so, then Puppy Pre-School is for you. Puppy Pre-School is held one night a week over a four week period, with classes running for about 1 1/2 hours each night.
The socialising period for a puppy is from 6 to 16 weeks. Yet this is the common age when puppies are taken away from their mother and litter mates and put into a strange new environment, often with no other dogs around. It is in this socialising period that mum and the litter mates would have a huge impact on establishing the behaviour for each pup. An unsocialised puppy could end up with behavioural problems as they mature.
Just as pre-school teaches our children to interact with each other and prepares them for school, Puppy Pre-School teaches basic obedience work, such as Sit, Stay, Heel and Come.
As the classes are held in the veterinary clinic, future visits should be less traumatic for everyone and the puppies should lose their fear of the vets. Numbers in these classes are limited, so bookings are essential. All puppies attending classes must be at least 6 weeks of age, vaccinated and wormed.
So if you're looking for a fun night out for the whole family, please contact our Puppy Pre-School Coordinator; Fiona.
