Learning continues after puppy preschool!
Puppy high school is currently available on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings and is a week course. Times vary through summer and winter so please check directly with clinic staff. The classes are run outdoors, so will be rescheduled if extreme heat is forecast (but not cold or wet so come prepared!). Daytime classes are run subject to interest. Puppy high school is for older pups aged from 12 weeks – 6 months. All puppies must be fully vaccinated (vaccination certificate required if done at another clinic). Younger puppies are welcome to attend Puppy Preschool.
Puppy high school is a great bridge between puppy preschool and community group obedience classes. You will learn basic obedience such as; sit, down, stand, stay, recall, loose lead walking and emergency stop. Along with community etiquette; meeting/greeting dogs and humans, outdoor cafes, etc. and an introduction to agility and obedience training plus information on tracking and other canine sports. Your puppy is sure to enjoy all the games and socialising we have prepared for them. You must have your puppy on a lead with a suitable collar as the class is held outdoors.
