Puppy Pre-School

confidence & resilience

(For dogs 8 – 20 weeks of age)

Puppies are one of the most adorable, energetic and curious things on the planet. However, without proper care, puppies can turn your world upside down, creating a lifetime of bad habits.

The Puppy Pre-School classes are delivered by our certified trainers and designed to help guide you through the first few weeks and months that are so critical to your puppy’s development and future.

You and your family will learn how to prevent bad behaviours, strengthen good manners and prepare both you and your dog for a long life of mutual understanding.

A maximum of six puppies are hosted in the only licensed and registered dog training facility in the inner southeastern suburbs of Melbourne.

The course consists of six sessions, the first of which is a compulsory theory lesson and then five themed, practical classes which introduce your puppy to an array of real-life situations.

**Now available at Port Phillip Animal Hospital! Call us for full details*
