Awesome! Loved everything and learned heaps!
Why puppy preschool?
A puppy course is invaluable in the young life of your dog. Not only for the dog but also for you and your family. How your dog grows into adulthood has part to do with nature, his genes and parents. But nurture, his life experiences, play the biggest part. The critical period in a puppy’s development is 4-16 weeks. At this time they need to be exposed to other dogs, people and novel situations. It is important that the puppy is prepared and guided as well as possible in his new life. New impressions, desired behavior, a certain rhythm. For all of us very logical, but unknown for your puppy.
A puppy course can provide indispensable support. With a puppy in the house you have your hands full, there is so much to be thought of!It is precisely this puppy course that can ensure that everyday situations and desired behavior are introduced right from the start. The owner is actively guided and builds a bond with the puppy at the same time.
But when is the right time to start a puppy course?
When to start with a puppy course
Puppy pre-school classes are for puppies aged between 8-16 weeks. The course is for 4 weeks during which your puppy will be able to socialise and play with other puppies in a safe, controlled environment under direct supervision of experienced, qualified Delta CGC instructors.
There is a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 puppies in each class. Puppy courses are on every Tuesday and start at the first Tuesday of the month from 7.15-8.15h at the Ark Veterinary Hospital. (the classes will only start is we reach the minimum of 3 puppies)
But what do you do, together on a puppy course?
The Ark Veterinary Hospital is taking the worry out of owning a puppy or kitten with our puppy package, designed to give you a comprehensive puppy health service for the first 12 months; saving you stress, time and money.

I’d give a very positive recommendation to anyone who enquired about puppy training.
These courses are really good. Well behaved dogs are least likely to end up abandoned.
Really Great! Thoroughly enjoyed it, learned a lot and feel I can train Maisy easily. Loved these small classes too.
