Puppy School

A new puppy is a 15-year commitment. Pittwater Animal Hospital has been running Puppy School for over 20 years.  We now have a large dedicated puppy school room with attached enclosed garden. 

It is best to start at 8 -13 weeks of age so book in early for Puppy School.

We have now started a Senior Puppy School for the 14-20 week age group.  (Our one-on-one behaviour sessions with Louise are fantastic.)

Puppy School for puppies starting at 8 -13 weeks will begin late June. Classes run on Tuesday at 5:30pm and 7pm and on Wednesday 5:30pm and 7pm. Classes are booked in a 4 week block. (Cost $170). If you can’t find a time that suits ring reception on 9913 7979 as we often open up new classes.

Senior Puppy School for puppies starting at 14 – 20 weeks will begin early July. Classes are on Thursday at 10am, 5:30pm or 7pm. Classes are booked in a 4 week block. (Cost $170)

Classes are booked in a 4 week block and cost $170 for the four week course.

To inquire 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.

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.

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. Just fill out the contact form above to register your interest.

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.
