Congratulations on your new addition to the family!
If you want to help your puppy be the best dog they can be, then our Puppy School is for you. Beautifully mannered dogs don’t train themselves – their owners invested considerable time and effort in the formative months of their life. The key learning timeframe for puppies is 8-20 weeks of age, so it is crucial that your puppy learns how to communicate effectively with both you and other dogs, as well as training and socialisation at this age.
When and where are the classes held?
Our classes are usually held on Sunday mornings at Swanbourne Veterinary Centre, with a new course starting every two weeks. We have a large enclosed outdoor space at the clinic with plenty of room for puppies to play and learn. Towards the end of your course, we move the classes to a small grassed area a few doors from the clinic, where your puppy will be challenged to learn with a few extra distractions! But don’t worry, we have a dedicated team of behaviour and training experts to teach you and your puppy all that you need to know.
What do you and your puppy learn during the course?
Topics that will be covered include
- Calming & trust training
- The 6 Commandments – Leave it, Sit, Down, Stay, Heel, Come
- Socialisation tips with other dogs, people and kids
And most importantly, you and your puppy will have fun whilst you’re teaching and learning together!
You can find out more about our trainers Lisa from Starbarks Dog Training, and Neri from Dog Whispering, here.
