Puppy Preschool

Please give us a call for the next start date and time!

Welcoming a puppy into your family is one of the most exciting things you’ll ever do. However, like humans, puppies aren’t born knowing how they should and shouldn’t behave. That’s where we step in!

Education for your pup!

Did you know that puppies can start developing poor habits from as young as two weeks old? While some of these might be cute or endearing, many of them might not be all that favourable – especially as your puppy begins to grow.

Tallebudgera Veterinary Clinic Puppy School

Our qualified veterinary nurse, Jodi, has been running Puppy Preschool classes for over 10 years. Jodi uses fun, reward-based techniques to develop a healthy, obedient and friendly puppy that will enjoy coming to the vet clinic, can socialise with other dogs and assists with toilet training techniques.

The Puppy Preschool course runs for 4 weeks on a Sunday.
All breeds are welcome! We work with pups who are approximately 8 – 12 weeks of age. Cost: $100 (4 x 1hr Lessons).
