There are many benefits to teaching your puppy to be well behaved at an early age. Young puppies are quite able to learn obedience skills, toileting behaviour and social boundaries. All of these things help make your relationship with your dog more rewarding for the years to come.
We provide an effective Puppy Pre-school program for all of the puppies that visit our clinic. With our progressive and positive learning techniques you will:
Develop an understanding of normal puppy behaviour.
Learn how to read your puppy’s body language and respond appropriately.
Develop effective techniques for positive behavioural development.
Learn important tips about walking in public areas.
Understand the need for socialising your puppy.
Teach your puppy some important ‘do not’ lessons
Understand important boundaries when playing together.
Develop strong bonds between you and your puppy
The most important thing about Puppy Pre-school is ‘start early’. Waiting too long can allow behaviour problems to establish which then require more intensive training to overcome.
So start today! Complete the form on the enrolment brochure to hand in at the clinic, or call us about enrolling your puppy in our local Puppy Pre-school classes.

“You walk out feeling like you matter.”
“Just wanted to say thank you to Marnie and the team at Timaru Family Vet. Let me rush in with my problem child cat after I’ve already been having a rough couple of weeks with other life issues, and she was so kind and wonderful and put up with my tears and emotions. You walk out feeling like you matter rather than just a number on paper. Thank you so much!”
