Puppy Pre-school

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. All of these things help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.

Hampton Vet is in partnership with Melbourne Dog Trainers to provide an effective puppy pre-school program.

The Puppy Pre-School classes are delivered by our qualified trainers and designed to help guide you through the first few weeks and months that are so critical to your puppy's development and future.

You and your family will learn how to prevent bad behaviours, strengthen good manners and prepare both you and your dog for a long life of mutual understanding.

The course consists of six sessions, the first of which is a compulsory theory lesson and then five themed, practical classes which introduce your puppy to an array of real-life situations.

The most important thing about puppy pre-school is 'start early'. We recommend between 8 and 20 weeks of age as waiting too long can allow behavioural problems to establish, which then require more intensive training to overcome.

Classes are held in our clinic, weekly on Wednesdays. Please call Melbourne Dog Trainers on 03 8609 9700 to enrol in our puppy pre-school classes.
