Puppy School in Surry Hills NSW

Our expert dog trainers have a fun, entertaining, and effective program for your cute puppies. These programs are designed to help your puppies develop into well-behaved, sociable dogs. The bulk of behavior issues, including fearfulness, anxiety, and aggression, can be avoided by beginning with puppy training and a planned program.

Puppy school graduates will be toilet trained, house trained, and socialized with other animals and humans.

Why Puppy School?

If you’ve recently become the proud owner of a new puppy, you may be overwhelmed by how adorable he is and how mischievous he may be. Puppy school is an important series of sessions designed to give you the skills you’ll need to socialize and train your puppy in a rewarding and positive way. It allows puppies of similar ages to interact in a secure, regulated setting while supervised by a knowledgeable and experienced trainer. Caroline Depledge of The Dog Sessions runs Puppy School.
