Our Puppy Preschool is run over four weeks and meets your puppy’s need for exposure, training and socialisation in a clean, safe and supervised environment. Learn how a dog perceives the world and how this influences behaviour. By recognising a dog’s body language we can keep puppies safe and relaxed as they socialise with other dogs.
