Puppy Pre-school

Puppy Pre School

Lesley Driver from the K9 Care Centre and Training Solutions has many years experience teaching Puppy Pre School, training dogs and bringing up puppies and she runs a Puppy Pre School every Monday night from 6.30pm in the Mornington Veterinary Centre reception area.

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.

We provide an effective Puppy Pre-school program for all of the puppies that visit our clinic. With our progressive and positive learning techniques you will:

  • 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

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.

If your interested  in attending the main requirement is that your puppy must have at least one vaccination and you must bring the vaccination Certificate with you.  No booking is required.
