At Alma Street Veterinary Hospital we host a Puppy Preschool several times through the year. The classes are run by two of our Veterinary Nurses Kimberly Foot and Kirsti Mellor.

Puppies are just like children, and are a product of their 'parents', this is why it is important to become fully aware of their needs. A puppy develops their social skills between the age of 8-16 weeks. By introducing your puppy to Puppy Preschool during this time, we aim to ensure your puppy becomes a polite and well behaved canine citizen.

Puppy Preschool focuses on socialisation and information for the owner. However we do cover some of the basic commands like Sit, Stay and Come. It is a great opportunity for a first time puppy owner to learn all the information you need about your new best friend or a just chance to socialize your new puppy and catch up the latest canine health care information. 

The course is run over four weeks on a Wednesday nights from 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

The four week course costs $60 per puppy.
