at Struggletown Vet Hospital
Join our Puppy School!
We use positive reinforcement training using food rewards as motivation.
Puppy School offers a safe and pleasant environment to socialise your puppy with other puppies of a similar age. This is of great importance as it helps your pup learn how to behave with other dogs, people, and children – an essential skill for everyday living.
Holding classes in our veterinary hospital means your puppy will learn that it is fun to go to the vet and will not develop a “fear of the vet”.
Ignore bad behaviour, praise good behaviour.
All our training is performed using only force free, reward based training. Rewards used are food/treats toys, games, and praise. Reward based training is scientifically proven as the most effective training method.
Puppies are for life – they are not just cute fluffy little things – they will become big furry things! Sadly, the most common cause of dog surrenders is “bad behaviour” so set them up for success and a long life with the family – bring them to puppy school!
