There are many benefits to teaching your puppy to be well behaved at an early age. Young puppies are quite able to learn obedience skills, toileting behaviour and social boundaries and can attend puppy pre-school once they have received their second vaccination.
Puppy pre-school will arm you with a progressive training schedule and positive learning techniques in order to help you:
Develop an understanding of normal puppy behaviour.
Learn how to read your puppy's body language and respond appropriately.
Develop effective techniques for positive behavioural development.
Learn important tips about walking in public areas.
Understand the need for socialising your puppy.
Teach your puppy some important 'do not' lessons.
Understand important boundaries when playing together.
Develop strong bonds between you and your puppy
All of these things will help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.
The most important thing about Puppy Pre-school is 'start early'. Waiting too long can allow behaviour problems to establish which then require more intensive training to overcome. So why wait? Start today by enrolling your puppy in Puppy Pre-school classes.

Puppies have a critical window for socialisation during 8 - 16 weeks and it is essential that puppy owners adequately socialise and train their puppy during this time. Everything a puppy experiences ( or doesnt experience ) will contribute in shaping them as an adult dog and how they respond to their environment. Puppy pre-school helps to build confidence, focus and a positive bond between puppies and their owners.
