Puppy Pre-school for pups aged 8 - 16 weeks, who have received their first vaccinations (bring your pup's vaccination certificate with you) are conducted inside the clubrooms on our washable floor surface, on Tuesday evenings throughout the year.
All family members are encouraged to attend classes which offer pups and their owners supervised socialisation with other dogs, as well as teaching basic commands such as to to Sit, Stand, Stay, Drop, Come, Fetch, to walk on a lead, and provide support and advice for those who may be experiencing difficulties with puppy behaviour, or such 'life-skills' as house-training.
Dover's training methods are positive and gentle, encouraging a combination of motivational techniques that utilise voice and rewards (treats or toy) with the correct use of a collar and lead.
Puppies graduate to the outdoor classes at 16 weeks of age, and remain in Puppy company until they reach 6 months, when they join either Grade 1 or 2 depending on their progress.
Puppy Kindy is free with standard club membership.
