Puppy Pre-school


Puppy Preschool is for pups between 10 and 15 weeks of age as of the class start date, and has had their first set of vaccinations. If your pup is 4 months or older, please register them for Family Dog Beginners.

Puppy Preschool class is a great way to build confidence (for you and your pup) while learning the basics. This is the time, while your pup is very young, to do a lot of foundation work so that they develop good habits. We’ll show you some fun exercises to do with your pup to build a positive and trusting relationship.

Puppy Preschool helps your puppy to learn the meaning of the words sit, down, and stand. We start the foundation work for walking nicely on leash, coming when called, impulse control, and disengagement from distractions. Information on surviving puppyhood, such as: nipping, whining, barking, and toileting is included. You will also receive, free of charge, our Puppy Preschool Videos.

Classes are held each week on the same day and time that you sign up for. Each class is 45 minutes in length. Classes are not held on weekends with statutory holidays but will resume the following week.
