Puppy pre-school is specifically designed for puppies between the ages of 8 to 12 weeks. This period is known as the critical period of a pup’s life as they are extremely accepting of new situations and experiences.
Puppy pre-school socialisation is an opportunity for young pups to learn how to interact with other pups and humans. It allows them to interact with other breeds of dogs besides their own breed!
Our courses consist of teaching your pup basic good manners (sit, stay, down, leave, no jumping, loose lead walking). We advise on house training, parasite control as well as feeding. We also have a simple obstacle course where pups gain confidence, master their muscle control and generally have fun. Pups also have an opportunity for off lead play.
We accept pups from 8 weeks, provided they have had their first inoculation. We have a ‘safe’ zone for the pups wherein we need you to bring your proof of inoculation when registering your pup. It is not necessary to wait until puppy has had this third inoculation. By that time the window of the critical period is almost closed.
Classes are once a week on a Saturday for 6 weeks and each sessions lasts for about an hour.
A collar and lead for your pup, some delicious treats as well as a poop bag…..and of course your pup and yourself!
Yes, children over the age of 10 may partake in class provided they are accompanied by a parent (or an adult) . Children under the age of 10 may visit and observe under supervision.
