So many dogs and cats are euthanised, even if physically healthy, due to unacceptable or "bad" behaviour. But this behaviour can be due to lack of socialisation, lack of bonding and/or lack of training.
Studies have shown the critical period for good social development and the right time to start training puppies is 8-12 weeks of age. Kittens also should have exposure to certain situations (for example, a pet carrier, strange people and travelling in the car) from an early age.
The best way to ensure your puppy becomes a valuable, well-behaved member of your family is to attend Puppy Preschool classes at our clinics.
You get to meet and greet other puppies and their owners, learn about dog behaviour, get lots of freebies and have great social interactions.
You will also get tips about healthcare, nutrition, phobias and veterinary information such as worming, desexing, common diseases, health risks, vaccinations, et cetera.
Classes are held regularly and Port Pirie -- typically for an hour a week for four weeks and all courses finish with a fun graduation.
