    Pup2Dog Puppy Preschool classes are designed to set owners and their new puppies up for success. This program heavily focuses on the early development of puppies, socialisation & preventing unwanted behaviours from developing.
    The Puppy Preschool program consists of 1 theory lesson followed by 5 practical lessons.
    The theory lesson is a dog-free lesson where you will learn all you need to know about training and management which allows the rest of the program to focus on practical skills.

    Each session goes for 1 hour and is consistent each week.
    Example:  If you book Monday at 6 pm, then you have the same day and time every week. 6pm start - 7pm finish. 

    Please note we advise you to ensure you can commit to all 6 classes as we are in high demand and we don't have time slots available for catching up in person. We can phone consult to catch up. 

    If you enrol and can’t commit to the classes this is at your own accord we can’t work around clients who choose to drop out or can no longer attend due to their own choices or lifestyle. 

    As stated emailed notes will still be sent and phone consults to catch clients up is all we can offer unless a client chooses to book and pay the 1 hour sessions for 1 on 1 training but times and dates are limited.
