Would you like to have a calm, relaxed, happy dog?

At Pittwater Animal Hospital we have been running Puppy Preschool classes very successfully since the early '90s. Recently, we modified our course to give your pup an even better start to life. Pittwater Puppy Preschool is not just a play session. Our Delta Trained Instructors, Louise and Lara, will walk you through the best way to raise and train a new puppy over our four-week course. As well as excellent teachers we are one of only a few practices that use a dedicated Puppy Training Classroom, not just a veterinary reception or treatment area. This keeps the puppies away from possible disease transmission from sick dogs.

One of the joys of owning a new puppy is watching them develop and grow as they become a member of your family and are introduced to the world. During their first 16 weeks, puppies develop up to 90 percent of their behaviour towards humans, other animals and their surroundings. The experiences they have and learn during this time, they tend to keep for life. So early training is very important!

Our puppies learn to SETTLE and behave calmly in any situation. Pups are trained to sit and relax on their mats in class and then at home. They learn tolerance and settled behaviour around strange people and dogs.

Pittwater Puppy Preschool will help you teach your puppy basic pet dog training cues such as Come, Sit, Drop, and Loose Lead Walking. Our trainers use the most current techniques for teaching dogs, and their owners. This helps you manage common puppy behaviours such as mouthing, digging, toilet training and jumping up, without stress.


Please call us when you acquire your new puppy as we like to start pups as young as possible (as long as they have had their 6-8 week vaccination). It may take a few weeks to book your dog into a class that will suit it best.

So if you are looking for a life-long family pet that is a joy to have, Pittwater Animal Hospital Puppy Preschool is the best place to start. Just call 9913 7979 to book in. Remember the sooner you start, the better it will be for your puppy and, of course, you.
