Puppy School

Your Very Special Trainer: Philippa Dakin

We are holding regular Puppy School at BHVG Shoalhaven heads Clinic. Between 8 and 12 weeks is the perfect time to join a puppy lifestyle training class.

From 8 – 16 weeks puppies learn patterns and behaviours that stay with them for life. They pay attention to you as their leader and want to please. This is a time when they start to experience the environment in all its diversity.

The aim of good puppy coaching is to encourage your puppy to become a well socialised and well-mannered member of your family as you embark on your lives together.

Benefits of puppy school include:

The present class is held on a Saturday at 4pm-5pm and a weekday class will be offered as needed.

Puppy School is held over a 4-week period. Each week is a progression from the previous week.

It’s a great time to hang out with your new puppy, meet other puppies and their humans, and develop a sound communication with your new puppy.

Philippa is an experienced and qualified veterinary nurse with a special interest and additional qualifications in animal behaviour and training. She has been running very successful Puppy Schools over the past 6 years.

For more information or to book your puppy into a class call BHVG on 4448 5621 or Philippa on 0410 309 776.

How Many Classes?

There are 4 classes at weekly intervals allowing both owners and their pets time to re-inforce the training in between classes. We find this has the maximum chance of a successful puppy schooling.

Philippa also conducts older puppy and adult dog training classes as well as one on one behaviour issues.
