Puppy Pre-School is a fantastic programme that helps your puppy develop social skills, learn acceptable behaviour, and verbal commands in a safe controlled environment as well as teaching owners what they need to know about their new puppy.

Puppy Pre-School is designed for puppies between the ages of 8-15 weeks. Puppies of all breeds and sizes are welcome to attend.

Pet Doctor’s Puppy Pre-School classes are held at our Woodville clinic on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 7pm until 8pm. Classes run for five consecutive weeks.

The aim of Puppy Pre-School is to:

  • educate owners on socially responsible pet ownership;
  • teach owners about normal and abnormal puppy behaviour;
  • teach owners a humane training method to assist them in training their puppies;
  • allow puppies to socialise in a safe and controlled environment;
  • allow puppies to accept gentle handling by humans other than their owners;
  • teach puppies good manners;
  • assist owners in solving issues such as housetraining (toileting), mouthing (biting), jumping up and chewing;
  • encourage further training such as dog obedience; and
  • encourage the puppy to be confident, happy and comfortable at the Veterinary clinic.

Puppy Pre-School at Pet Doctor costs $90 for all five weeks.  Puppies must be up-to-date with worming, flea treatments and vaccinations in order to attend.  Due to Covid-19 distancing regulations, classes sizes are limited to four puppies per class with only one owner able to attend.

For more information or to book your puppy into Puppy Pre-School, please contact one of our friendly Nurses.
