Everyone is familiar with the excitement (and potential chaos) that accompanies the arrival of a new furry friend. Puppy preschool is a critical aspect of raising an obedient and well-adjusted dog. Not only is it an important socialisation tool, it allows your puppy to learn good behaviour & some common commands, and it’s also LOTS of fun for you and your dog!

We run puppy training & preschool classes at our Tamborine Mountain and Yarrabilba locations, so it's convenient for people and dogs from all across the Gold Coast Hinterland. 

The Importance of Socialising your Puppy

From the moment a puppy opens their eyes they begin interacting with the world around them, learning what is safe and what is scary. That’s why, in contrast to traditional dog training, socialising your puppy is important. Exposing your dog to other puppies, people, environments, signs, smells, and other animals helps your new pup to feel comfortable with its surroundings as it grows up. 

After 16 weeks of age dogs can become very cautious and may display poor behaviour if they encounter something new and frightening. Of course it’s possible to teach an old dog new tricks but it’s much easier to socialise your puppy at a young age! That’s why our puppy preschool program is perfect for new dog training.

What Does Puppy Preschool Cover?

Our experienced nurses offer a comprehensive puppy preschool program that assists new owners to train their new puppy correctly and effectively. If you train your new puppy at Tamborine Mountain Vet Surgery or Yarrabilba Vet Hospital you and your puppy will learn:

  • basic obedience/dog training - sit, stay, come, drop, walking on a lead
  • nutrition - what should your puppy eat?
  • health care (vaccinating your puppy, parasite treatment)
  • toilet training your puppy
  • positive reinforcement techniques

We run puppy school at Tamborine Mountain and Yarrabilba. Please contact us to find out when the next puppy preschool classes are being held.
