Puppy Pre-school

Our Puppy Pre-school is a fantastic way to create a bond, learn useful tips and socialise your puppy, as well as getting your puppy used to visiting the vet clinic.

Puppies learn how to behave in both human and canine company and how to perform fundamental commands such as sit, stay, come here and heel. You will learn about healthcare for your puppy as well as some key pointers to keep your puppy and family having fun together. 

Each training session is accompanied by easy-to-follow information sheets and advice on how to continue training your puppy at home.  We will do our best to help sort out any behaviour problems that you may be experiencing at home.

The cost of the classes is $120 and they are spread over 4 weeks (for about an hour one night per week) usually on a Monday evening at 7:30pm. During this time we cover basic command training – Sit, Stay, Come, Walking on a lead etc, basic care of your puppy and they have the opportunity to socialise in a safe environment with other puppies and owners, which is so important while they are young!

As well as the weekly information sheets, on completion of the course you will also receive some freebies including food and vouchers, and a graduation certificate.

To find out more, or to enrol your puppy give us a call at the clinic or send us an email.

If your puppy is over 16 weeks or will be 16 weeks before the end of the course we recommend going to Canterbury Canine Obedience Club.  They run an excellent 8 week obedience course for older puppies and dogs.  You can contact them on: http://cantycanine.homestead.com or phone 03 328-8483.
