Our professional kindergarten puppy training is highly recommended by veterinarians, breeders and pet shop owners. If you value your pup’s well being, and want it to be well adjusted and a happy member of the family, enrol your puppy in Kindergarten Puppy Training based in Melbourne now!
To teach new puppy owners through the school’s unique “Training On Natural Lines” program, correct procedures in the handling, training, shaping behaviour , rearing and socialisation of young puppies from 8 weeks – 16 weeks of age thus avoiding problem behaviour in the future. At our puppy training classes in Melbourne we use modern behavioural techniques to train young puppies.
Because young puppies develop rapidly between 8 & 16 weeks of age (critical periods of development), their temperament must be formed carefully and good behaviour patterns established properly during this time. Otherwise you as a puppy owner are running the risk of creating a pup that could be nervous, out of control, destructive and a nuisance to everyone. We encourage families to attend. However, please be aware that children must be at least 10 years of age to participate although they may attend as observers with their parent.
