Have you seen those really well behaved dogs and thought, “I’d love my puppy to be like that”? Then Tate Animals Puppy Preschool® can help you start on the right track.

Puppy Preschool® is held for one hour a week for 5 weeks. Group classes are held here at the vet clinic in a safe and welcoming indoor environment and are designed for puppies aged 8-14 weeks.

What will you and your puppy achieve at Puppy Preschool®?

  • Training in basic manners – Sit, Drop, Stay, Come, Leave it and the start of Loose-lead walking.
  • Management skills for puppy behaviours – toilet training, mouthing and biting, jumping up, barking and digging.
  • Advice on puppy behaviour, health, nutrition and first aid. We bring you up-to-date information on products and services available.
  • Greater socialization with people and other dogs.
  • A chance to practice around distractions and learn how to manage them.
  • A pet who is not only happy, but very willing to come to the vet!

Each puppy receives weekly take-home notes covering the information and exercises covered during classes. Upon completion each puppy is awarded a graduation certificate and hat.

It’s fun, friendly and family-inclusive. All breeds and sizes are welcome.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help! That’s what these classes are for!
