Puppy Preschool

The best in the west!

Here’s what you need to know about puppy preschool

Why is puppy preschool important?

Puppy preschool classes are a controlled way to expose your puppy to novel people, dogs, objects and the environment. Research shows dogs that had not attended puppy socialisation classes were more likely to display behaviour problems involving fear or aggression towards strangers, unfamiliar dogs and objects in the environment.
Prevention of behaviour problems through appropriate early training and management helps to keep dogs in their homes. Behavioural problems are the number reason pet dogs under the age of 3 are relinquished.
Don’t face the stress and frustration of dealing with a problem when you can prevent it with early socialisation and foundation training.

Why should you attend a puppy preschool with Miss Behaviour?

Not all puppy preschools were created equal. Too often I’ve seen clients with fearful or reactive puppies after taking a puppy class that had too many dogs, with too few instructors, in too small a space, or that had been run by someone without any behavioural qualifications. I have:

  • Been specially trained in canine behaviour
  • Years of experience
  • Knowledge of learning theory and know how to apply it practically
  • An understanding of canine development. Basic care of dogs and health conditions
  • The flexibility and expertise to modify any part of the course to suit your puppies needs
    I don’t use a one size fits all approach, I treat each puppy and guardian as an individual
  • I will always have small class sizes suitable to the space I’m operating in so that your puppy is safe
  • My classes are comprehensive and informative but most importantly it’s fun!
  • You get comprehensive notes and videos
  • I get to know you and your puppy and you can have continuity when you continue your training in your Kindy, Teen, Adult or Private lessons.

Dog behaviour and training is my speciality and my core business. When you choose Miss Behaviour, you’re not another number turning up to a class. You also have phone and e-mail support for the duration of the course, and you have the option of one on one support if you need it. You get comprehensive training notes and are supported through the online learning portal. And you can also continue training with me in the future. I love seeing my puppy clients grow up!
