Why Come to Puppy Preschool?
The most vital stage of your puppy’s development occurs between the ages of 8 and 14 weeks. This is a prime socialization period for your puppy where they will learn many of their personality traits that they display later in life. Socialisation of puppies is fundamental to develop into happier, well-adjusted dogs that make much more pleasant pets. This is also a crucial period for learning new behaviours, which makes basic obedience training at puppy preschool a valuable investment for you both!
Our Puppy Preschool program provides you with the necessary tools to socialise and train your puppy in a rewarding and positive manner. It allows puppies of similar ages to interact in a safe, controlled environment under the direction of our trained and experienced nurses. Holding classes at the clinic also provides puppies with a positive vet experience to help your puppy enjoy future vet visits.
We keep our classes capped at 4 - 6 puppies to give you and your puppy the attention required for proper learning. In addition, we will introduce you and your puppies with a behind the scenes tour of Ripley Veterinary Hospital to gain an appreciation of the care and commitment we have to you and your new furry member of the family.
