Puppy Preschool

Puppy preschool is a socialisation and training program designed for young dogs aged between 8-16 weeks. The classes teach basic obedience, preventative health care, give tips on dealing with common behaviour problems and allow pups to socialise in a safe environment. They are run by Annette one of our senior veterinary nurses, who has a particular interest in dog behaviour.

There have been changes made to our preschool program to allow it to run covid-safe. Due to the requirement for physical distancing the classes are now run outdoors so we require the pups to have had at least their first immunization.

Classes are run over four weeks at a cost of $100 at 6pm at the clinic on a Monday evening. Alternatively you could join the 6pm Tuesday class at Yamba Veterinary Clinic.

If you are interested in enrolling in the next class or have questions about the program please email clinic@yambavet.com.au along with your name, best contact number and the details of your pup and Annette will contact you before the next class is due to start.

As the classes are outdoors please keep on an eye of Facebook if the weather is inclement as updates will be posted there.

To help get started on the right paw with your new pup we’ve compiled a list of our favourite videos on common issues faced with a new dog in the household.
