Join our comprehensive, four-week Puppy Pre-School course to set your puppy up for success from the day you bring them home and build a strong, trusting relationship together!

Classes are held at 6.30pm on Wednesday’s at Central Bark Dog Daycare, Wangara. Puppies should be between 8 and 13 weeks at the commencement of the course and must have had their first vaccination.

During this course your puppy will have a range of socialisation experiences which are an important part of their early development.  We’ll help you understand what socialisation is, why it’s important and how to do it safely.  We’ll teach you how to read and interpret your dog’s body language and what to do if your puppy is fearful.  We’ll discuss how to handle the most urgent puppy issues such as toilet training, biting, chewing, jumping up, barking and digging.

We’ll also cover topics such as:

  • Home set-up and equipment

  • How dogs learn, training methodologies and how to phase out food

  • Crate training

  • Basic skills – Focus, sit, drop, stand, touch (target training); go to a mat and settle, loose leash walking, polite greetings, come when called

  • Preparation for the vet and groomer

  • Building confidence through body awareness

  • Fun tricks and games

Plus, each session will include plenty of time for questions and answers.
