Puppy Pre-School

The best start for your puppy!

Our puppy preschool is a fun place for puppies 8 – 16 weeks to play and learn. We run classes at Lyall Bay, Upper Hutt,, Lower Hutt and Karori.

Your puppy doesn’t have to be fully vaccinated but we do recommend you carry your puppy from the car into the building.

Your puppy will also have plenty of FUN playing with other puppies of similar age and size in a safe, indoor environment.

We will also teach you about pack hierarchy and how you can become the leader of the pack, while still enjoying cuddling and playing with your puppy anytime you choose.

This will enhance your bond with your puppy right from the start. You will be amazed at the difference in your puppy after just 4 weeks of training.

We encourage the whole family to come to our puppy preschool to get involved in the training at home, so your puppy receives consistency in its training.

We have two Trainers per class to ensure you get the individual attention and feedback you need to help you through the training

Your trainers are Jo & Hope.

All participants will receive weekly homework to follow, to keep up with the training.
