confidence & resilience
(pups must start before 16 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.

Puppy 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.

Puppy School Locations:

Ormond @ Woofers World
Albert Park @ Port Phillip Animal Hospital
Burwood @ The Dog Dazzlers
Hampton @ Hampton Vet Clinic

Why You Should Consider Dog Puppy Training Classes?

Puppy Schools Melbourne – Melbourne Dog Trainers

How Do Dogs Learn?

Reward-based training should be the norm. When you reward the dog for a particular behaviour, such as with food, toys, or praise, many dogs are more likely to repeat it in the future of their training journey.

It’s crucial to learn the dog’s true preferences and favourite items. Small slices of cheese or pork are frequently served as snacks. The more satisfying the incentive, the more eager the dog will be to train and learn!


What’s Special About Puppy To Dog School?

Our dog training courses at Puppy To Dog School are designed to cater to dogs of all ages and breeds. Whether you’re starting with a puppy or have an older dog, we have the perfect dog training Melbourne program to suit your needs.

We offer both private lessons and group classes in addition to specialised training programs to accommodate various learning styles and preferences.

Private Lessons
Private lessons in our dog training courses provide one-on-one attention from a dedicated dog trainer, allowing you and your dog to progress at your own pace. These sessions are particularly beneficial for dogs that may have special needs or require individualised attention. It’s an excellent way to address specific behaviour issues and ensure personalised dog training.
Group Classes
Group classes at our dog training courses are a fantastic way for your pup to socialise with other dogs and learn valuable social skills. In a controlled environment, dogs have the opportunity to interact with other dogs and humans, improving their behavior and responsiveness to commands. Learning alongside other dogs is a great way to reinforce your pup’s training.
Specialised Training Programs
While our course includes basic obedience training, we also offer specialized training programs, such as agility training, scent detection, and obedience competitions. These programs can be an exciting way to challenge your dog’s skills and keep them mentally and physically engaged. For example, scent detection training involves teaching your dog to target odours, which can be useful for search and rescue work or even just as a fun and rewarding game.

What Are The Dog Training Techniques
In Our Dog Training Courses?

The Puppy Training Journey

Puppies are like sponges, ready to soak up all the knowledge and skills you can teach them. At Puppy To Dog School, we specialize in puppy training programs that focus on teaching the basics and essential behaviors that your pup will carry with them throughout their life.

Positive Reinforcement and Clicker Training

Our puppy training classes at Puppy To Dog School are centered around positive reinforcement and clicker training. This approach involves a food-motivated technique, or other motivating rewards such as target odours when they exhibit the desired behavior.

Clicker training, using a small hand-held clicker device, helps pinpoint the exact moment your pup does something right, making the learning process clearer and more efficient.

Hand Signals and Verbal Commands

In addition to verbal commands, our trainers also teach hand signals to make communication with your dog even more effective. This can be especially helpful when your dog is at a distance or in a noisy environment.

Combining hand signals with the same command verbally gives you greater control over your dog’s behavior.

Obedience Training and Basic Commands

Our training programs emphasize obedience training, which is essential for a well-behaved dog. Commands such as “sit,” “stay,” “down,” and “come” are the foundational building blocks of good behavior.

These basic commands provide the framework for a dog’s understanding of what is expected of them and how to behave in various situations. With consistency and positive reinforcement, these commands become second nature to your dog.
