Puppy School

A new puppy is a 15-year commitment. We have been running Puppy School for over 20 years and have an air-conditioned dedicated puppy school room. Our puppy classes are very well regarded.  Puppy School is suitable for puppies younger than 16 weeks.

It is best to start at 10-12 weeks of age so book in early. (If your puppy is older, our one-on-one behaviour sessions with Louise are fantastic.)

Classes run on Monday 7pm plus Tuesday and Wednesday at 5:30pm and at 7pm. To enquire about availability please send us a message by filling our the contact form below. When we are very busy we add morning classes, but the receptionist can let you know.

Tell us the age and breed of your puppy and what classes you are interested in. We will get back to you very quickly.


Places can’t be held without payment. Once your class is booked make sure you clear your own schedule to make time for the classes. Dogs are growing very quickly and we don’t do catch up classes.

We wish to help you have a calm, relaxed, confident companion that you will enjoy for many years. Our highly experience Puppy Trainer is Delta-trained using methods of positive reinforcement, environmental changes and distraction to encourage your dog down the right path. These methods reinforce the human animal bond rather than harming your relationship, which is the case when punishment based training techniques are used.

All puppies attending are vaccinated and healthy. We try to start puppies in classes as early as possible. This is very important as young puppies are much less distracted and have not learnt bad habits.

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 School 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.

So, if you are looking for a life-long family pet that is a joy to have, Pittwater Animal Hospital Puppy School is the best place to start. Just fill out the contact for above to register your interest. Remember the sooner you start, the better it will be for your puppy and of course you.

Once your puppy has completed puppy school we also offer one-on-one puppy training with our puppy trainer for the following 12 months. The 2020 price is $80 for an hour or $45 for a half hour session. If you are interested fill in the form on the behaviour training page.
