Hall Veterinary Surgery’s dog training is delivered through puppy preschool course, which is for puppies aged 8-12 weeks. This is the ideal window for puppies to learn socialisation skills, which is very important to avoid social-behavioural issues as they grow up. Whether this is your first puppy, or you need a refresher, these classes start both of you off on the right foot/paw.
We bring you up to date on all aspects of puppy care including diet, parasite control, desexing, registration and strategies for shaping good behaviour. We teach basic training: “Come”, “Sit”, “Drop” and walking on lead using positive food rewards.
Puppy party introduces puppies to other dogs, people and experiences in a positive way at the most impressionable age. This reduces fear that might lead to aggression in susceptible dogs. You establish your role as leader early and gain tools for developing a healthy, happy, calm and well-mannered pet. We hope that you will be rewarded by years of devotion, fun and companionship.
As a responsible dog owner you protect dogs’ reputation as man’s best friend.
One or two class streams run on weekday nights for four consecutive weeks from 7.30-8.30 pm. Classes are restricted to 5-6 puppies and their main carers. Space limits us to two people per puppy. Bookings are essential and we require proof of vaccination.
In each class we provide you with notes and product samples relevant to the topics discussed.
