Give your pup a flying start to life with Puppy PreSchool
All animals at the start of their lives experience what is known as the ‘sensitive development period’. During this time, they encounter the world for the first time – and learn to accept what they find.
In puppies, the sensitive period starts from birth and lasts until about 14 weeks of age. Anything a puppy experiences during that time will become part of its natural order of things. After that age, unfamiliar objects and experiences can cause a fearful response (sometimes extremely fearful) and could ultimately lead to aggression.
Our puppy preschool offers you a unique opportunity to introduce your puppy to many additional sights, sounds and experiences in a controlled and responsible way. They are a fun and informative way to help you begin the socialisation process in a safe environment and allow your puppy to meet others while it is still very young. Good socialisation is the best way to ensure a friendly, well-adjusted puppy.
Our puppy preschools are designed for puppies between 8 and 16 weeks of age and are generally run over 4 weeks. Topics covered include:
- Puppy socialisation with people
- Puppy play
- Behaviour problems
- Play and exercise
- Fleas and ticks
All training classes are taught using positive reinforcement where we encourage, reward and praise the puppy for the right behaviour.
