Due to Covid 19 restrictions only one or two people can attend with each puppy. If you would like the whole family to learn about puppy training and behaviour or if our puppy training nights don’t suit it is best to book a personalized one-on-one puppy training sessions with Louise. It is such a great way for everyone in the family to start out teaching the same way.

The Pittwater Team wishes 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 with your puppy. Punishment based training techniques will harm your relationship with your new pet.

All puppies attending are vaccinated and healthy. Puppies start 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.
