puppy-school

Our expert dog trainers have a fun, entertaining and effective program for your cute puppies. These classes are designed to give your puppies the opportunity to become a well-behaved and sociable dog. The majority of behaviour problems such as fearfulness, anxiety and aggression can be avoided with puppy training and structured program from the beginning.

Once a puppy graduates from puppy school, they’ll be toilet trained, house trained, and be comfortable socializing with other animals and humans.
