Puppy preschool is a five-week course that helps with initial training and socialisation of your puppy in a safe environment.

Positive rewards based training methods are used to give you the ability to do the basic things that everyone needs to be able to get their dogs to do: sit on command, walk on a lead and interact safely with other dogs and people.
