Puppy Pre-school

There are many benefits to teaching your puppy to be well behaved at an early age. Young puppies are quite able to learn obedience skills, toileting behaviour and social boundaries. All of these things help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.
We provide an effective Puppy Pre-school program to help your new puppy learn essential new skills and behaviours. With our progressive and positive learning techniques you will:

  • Develop an understanding of normal puppy behaviour
  • Learn how to read your puppy's body language and respond appropriately
  • Develop effective techniques for positive behavioural development
  • Learn important tips about walking in public areas
  • Understand the need for socialising your puppy
  • Teach your puppy some important 'do not' lessons
  • Understand important boundaries when playing together
  • Develop strong bonds between you and your puppy


The most important thing about Puppy Pre-school is to start early - waiting too long can allow behaviour problems to establish which then require more intensive training to overcome. Our class accepts puppies between the ages of 8-12 weeks and has a maximum of 6 puppies per course to ensure you get quality time with our trainer.

Puppy school is run on a Tuesday evening from 7pm-8pm for 4 weeks. If our classes get full we often put on an extra class on a Thursday.

Our puppy school teacher is Kate Newton from For Paws -  you can see some information about Kate under the About Us and Meet Our Team tabs.  You can also see more about Kate and For Paws at their website
