Puppy School

Puppy School is such a great way to bond with your pet and at the same time teach them basic obedience to ensure they grow up to be a happy and well-mannered member of our pet community.


Owning a puppy is an exciting and busy time for you and your new furry member of the family! The first 6 months of your puppy's life is the most crucial time for development and our Puppy Pre-School offers a great way to socialise your fur child in a safe and encouraging environment. Join our 5 week program as we teach you everything you need to know to help your pup grow into a confident, well-behaved and sociable dog.
 

We're located opposite Westfield Kotara  - the pawfect location for Newcastle pet parents living in Kotara, Kotara South, Adamstown, New Lambton, Charlestown and surrounding areas!
