    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.

    The classes go for 1 hour, once a week. We have a limit of 2 people per pup. 
    Example- If you book Monday 6pm 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 catch up in person. We can phone consult to catch up.
