Because Good Dogs Need Great Training
Help your puppy achieve a happy, healthy and social start to life. The Enfield Veterinary Hospital Puppy Preschool is for puppies 8-14 weeks of age. This is the vital socialisation period for puppies and what they learn at this stage, good or bad, will stay with them throughout their lives.
Puppy training is less about “tricks” and more about helping you puppy to have good associations with the world and other dogs. Socialisation is incredibly important for all puppies to experience before 16 weeks.
Run by experienced dog trainers using only the most up-to-date reward-based training methods, Puppy pre-school gives you and your puppy the chance to learn how to socialise with other dogs and people, basic training and lots of tips on dealing with biting, chewing, house training, barking and general health care.
For any pups over 14wks we recommend attending a “Senior Puppy” class, aimed at the slightly different needs of that age group. There are 2 local trainers who run these types of classes as well as adult dog classes & can do one-on-one at home consultations if there is a particular problem behaviour you need help with working out.
