Regular puppy classes are held at Kirrawee veterinary hospital. These classes allow puppies to socialise with other people, children and other puppies in a fun, safe environment.
The first four months of a dog’s life is a critical development phase, and is the most important time for socialisation. It’s also when behaviours – both good and bad – become established. Set your newest family member off on the right paw with puppy classes at Kirrawee Veterinary Hospital.
If you’re a new pet parent, it can be enjoyable and rewarding at times. However, training a new puppy may seem like a daunting task. For one, you may start to notice particular natural habits that are a little off-putting (such as jumping or excessive barking). While it might seem cute now, these behaviours may not be when they are older and much bigger. With the right training, your puppy’s bad habits can be redirected and replaced with more appropriate behaviour.
When should I enrol my puppy or dog in Puppy School?
It is recommended that your puppy begins training between the ages of 8-14 weeks, provided they have met their minimum vaccination requirements.
At Kirrawee Veterinary Hospital, we take great pride in ensuring all Puppy School students are taught in a safe and healthy environment. For this reason, your puppy or dog will need to be:
- In good health overall
- Currently flea and worm treated
- Friendly towards people and other dogs
- Have minimum C5 Vaccination (for puppy primary)
- Have minimum C3 Vaccination 10 days prior to first class (for Puppy Preschool)
