Puppy Pre-school

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.
Our wonderful nurses provide an effective Puppy Pre-school program for all of the puppies between the ages of 8 - 16 weeks of age that visit our clinic. All puppies must have had their first C3 or C4 vaccination prior to starting their class. 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.
So start today and call us here at Ark Veterinary Hospital on 9495 1226 about enrolling your puppy in our local Puppy Pre-school classes.
