Puppy School

It’s time for school!

Owning a puppy is a huge responsibility! Your puppy is dependent on you for many things including shelter, food and companionship. In addition to these basic needs, you are responsible for your puppy’s behaviour and obedience training. If done properly your puppy will have a better chance to grow into a happy, well-adjusted adult with whom you can enjoy many years to come….

Testimonial: ““I really enjoyed the puppy talk with the Vet Connection, the information provided was very interesting, informative and helpful. It will definitely help me with raising my puppy. I think this is a great idea for new puppy owners or people thinking about getting a puppy. This is particularly useful for people who have never had a dog before so that they can know what to expect when buying a puppy. “ Alannah Carroll

Give your puppy the best start...

The most vital stage in your puppy’s behavioural development is between 8 to 13 weeks of age. During this time puppies learn how to respond to our world and how they are meant to act in it.
Puppy school provides a safe, controlled environment for puppies to learn social skills and basic training. Puppies are taught using positive reinforcement techniques and basic obedience commands such as sit, drop, come and walking on a lead are all covered. We will also help you with advice regarding toilet training, digging, biting, jumping etc.
