Why puppies need puppy preschool
Puppy preschool is a must for any owner wanting a well-behaved and sociable dog. Misbehaviour such as chewing, jumping up on owners and barking for attention may seem very cute coming from your adorable little puppy, but if these behaviours are allowed to continue into your dog's adult life, they can become very large issues.
It is always much easier to nip these naughty behaviours in the bud while the dog is still young, rather than trying to fix them once the animal is all grown up.
Puppy classes are designed for dogs between the ages of 8 to 16 weeks and provide a safe environment for the puppy to begin to socialise with other dogs. Class sizes vary, but are usually kept small to ensure that the instructor is able to spend ample time with each puppy and their owners. The course is run over a 4 week period and is based around positive-reinforcement training practices.
Benefits from attending puppy preschool result in puppies which are:
Socialised and interact better with people and other dogs
More secure and confident within themselves and their surroundings
Part of your family pack and respect the boundaries set for them.
