Puppy Preschool is a must for all owners looking to give their puppy the very best start in life and the opportunity to grow into a well behaved, sociable dog. Classes are designed for puppies between 8 to 12 weeks of age, as this is the critical learning stage when puppies gain important socialisation skills and learn the basics of being a well-behaved pet.
Young puppies are at a very impressionable age where learning and training is happening at every interaction your pup has with you and the world. These experiences that take place now will have a significant impact on how your puppy will behave as an adult dog, so we’re here to help make sure you start off on the right paw.
Your puppy needs you to teach them the rules of living in our human world and AdelaideVet Puppy Preschool gives you the tools to teach your puppy in a positive and effective way to help them grow into a confident and well-behaved dog.
Puppy Preschool provides a safe, controlled environment for puppies to socialise and classes are kept small so that time can be spent with each puppy and their owners.
Each year thousands of dogs end up in pounds and shelters, due to behavioural problems developing in later life. This is often the result of a lack of proper socialisation and training in the important early developmental stage of a puppy’s life.
Training at AdelaideVet is focused on positive reinforcement, where we reward the behaviours we want and ignore the ones we don’t want. This training approach helps to build a stronger bond with your dog and gives you the best start to a happy life with your new puppy.
