Puppy Pre-School

Encouraging good behaviour for life.

Semaphore beach life means our canine patients spend plenty of time on the sand among other dogs and people which is why it is vital they learn good behaviour and social skills from an early age.

Led by Delta-trained instructor Jo, our one-hour puppy preschool classes are held over five consecutive weeks at the clinic and are a fun and interactive way for owners and puppies to get together to learn the skills and commands required to become well-mannered members of the canine community.

Puppy pre-school graduates often associate good experiences with the surgery which make subsequent visits more enjoyable.

Older dogs aged over six months, who may need a refresher course, can take obedience classes off site. Grade One classes are conducted outside to allow for lead work while Grade Two & Three classes are held inside to allow for off-lead work for more complex voice command work.
