What do we do in Puppy Preschool Classes?

There are certain windows in a puppy’s life where socialisation and training is critical to their ongoing development and evolving personality. The first 16 weeks in a puppy’s life can help determine the kind of dog they will become.

Socialisation is important in helping our puppies form strong bonds and relationships with people, other animals and environments such as the vet clinic.

When we use the word ‘training’, we’re not just talking about your basic ‘sit, drop, stay’, we’re actually talking about their behaviour and how to create a settled and happy puppy so they can ultimately become an enjoyable member of your family.

At Berwick Clyde Vet, we are passionate about fostering a positive and enjoyable relationship between our clients and their dogs. There is nothing more satisfying than watching our puppy preschool graduates grow and mature.

Our puppy preschool classes consist of 4, in person group sessions as well as access to exclusive learning materials and e-books.

Classes are aimed for puppies aged 8 to 16 weeks as this is the peak, socialisation period.

The cost of this course is $180.
