UNAVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

Puppies have a sensitive period of development known as the socialisation period. It occurs from three weeks to three months of age. The experiences a puppy has during this time will affect later behaviour. If puppies are to develop into happy, friendly and confident adults, they need to be regularly handled and exposed to many new and novel situations in a non-threatening way.

HOW IS IT FREE?

Classes run for 4 consecutive weeks. The cost is $90, which is payable in full at the start of your first class. How is it free? Here's the deal: successfully attend all four classes, and $90 will be credited to your account for you to use on any future service with us.


Puppies that are not exposed to other dogs during the socialisation period or have unpleasant experiences are more likely to develop aggression or fearful responses to other dogs later in life. Pups also need to have contact with people other than their family to help them develop into well-mannered members of the community.

We recognise that not all puppy owners are the same. This is why each class is tailor-made to the specific group needs. We spend time addressing your worries, questions, and needs, ensuring you are confident in raising your puppy after the 4 week course.

During this course your puppy will:

  • Socialise with other puppies and people.
  • Develop confidence and learn how to behave with different people, loud noises, other dogs, children, and novel stimuli. This is presented in a fun and non-threatening manner. (Some puppies may need an individual program of exposure to these items.)
  • Learn to respond to verbal and visual cues such as sit, drop, stay and come.
  • Learn to settle.
  • Be taught to respond to you appropriately in a variety of settings.

And during this course you will:

  • Learn normal puppy habits and behaviours.
  • Socialise with other puppies and people. (Socialisation is one of the best things about having a dog. And good for your health too!)
  • Learn the basics you need to care for your puppy.
  • Have all your concerns, questions and needs addressed in a safe, welcoming environment.
  • Learn how to teach your puppy some basic commands with verbal and visual cues such as sit, drop, stay and come.
  • Teach your puppy to settle.
  • Have fun! Puppy school is a lot of unpredictable chaos and fun.
