Why should I bring my pup to puppy class?
Puppy classes are about socialising your puppy to mix with other dogs, other animals, children, adults and to be exposed to new experiences. These classes also teach your puppy good manners and some basic obedience skills. They also educate owners about normal puppy behaviour and the responsibility of owning a dog.
Socialisation in pups occurs until approximately 14 weeks and failure to under go appropriate socialisation before this age is the cause of many behaviour problems that occur in our pets. Attendance at these classes is one of most important things you can do to ensure that your pup will be well adjusted and live harmoniously within your home and with all of your family members. Inappropriate socialisation will have life long effects on your pup's behaviour.
Who runs the puppy class?
Our classes are run by Brenda a DELTA accredited trainer and Terry a veterinarian both of whom have extensive experience working with puppies and dogs.
Where,When and How long are the classes?
Our Puppy classes are fun and are run in a safe and controlled environment preventing your pup becoming too excited.
Classes run for 1 hour on 4 consecutive Saturday mornings. Other times may be arranged depending on numbers of pups.
They are held at the Scout Hall at 10 Willoughby Street Epping .
What age should my pup be to attend?
.Our classes are for pups between 8 - 16 weeks of age.
All family members are welcome to attend especially your children however it is essential that an adult family member be present.
Are there any special requirements for my pup to attend?
Pups must have had their first vaccination but because these classes are held away from areas where pups might be exposed to disease and are held indoors under veterinary supervision they are not required to have completed their full vaccination schedule. Proof of vaccination for all attendees will be required.
All pups should be on a flat collar or harness and on a lead at all times unless asked to be released by an instructor. Check chains are not appropriate.
