Puppy School

It is important for puppies to be trained and socialised between 8 and 18 weeks old, as this is the time when it is quickest and easiest for them to learn and absorb new information. Puppy Preschool is important at this age, as it helps expose them to as many new experiences in a safe and controlled environment as possible. It also exposes them to different breeds and allows them to adjust to and communicate with each other. Puppy Preschool also enables puppies to learn to be calm around other dogs, and balance excited play behaviour with calm, quiet activities. Information leaflet At Puppy Preschool, we aim to:
  • Provide socialisation and training for a well-behaved puppy through to adulthood
  • Help you identify and prevent potential behavioural problems, such as barking, biting and jumping
