Designed for puppies between eight and 18 weeks of age, puppy school is essential for the early development of young dogs. A puppy’s brain is like a sponge – what they experience today will influence what type of personality they have when they are adults. Because puppies develop like this, socialisation and training is imperative in the first few weeks and months of their life. The Vets on Parker puppy pre-school is a relaxed and fun environment where puppies learn to socialise and owners learn basic dog training skills. Led by the experienced team of trainers from Positive K9 Training, our puppy pre-school makes sure that you and your puppy receive the care that you need during this period. Contact us on (03) 9850 1355 to book a place for your puppy in the next available class.

At Vets on Parker, our puppy preschool is designed for puppies aged 8-14 weeks at the start of the first class. We will allow puppies to start as old as 16 weeks for some breeds. For further information, please reach out to us at 9850 1355.

Each class at puppy preschool lasts 50 to 60 minutes and runs consecutively for five weeks.

Our puppy preschool classes are run by an experienced professional dog trainer from Positive K9 Training.

The classes are held outdoors in our fully enclosed puppy preschool yard. You can access the area via the stairs to the right of the reception area entrance or via the Ruffey Street car park.

Generally, our puppy preschool classes run in all weather except thunderstorms or heavy rain. The clinic will notify you via SMS if a class has been cancelled.

Yes, all puppies must have received their first puppy vaccination before their first class at puppy preschool.

  • Whilst most owners understand the impact of their pet's oral health on their general health and quality of life, many may still need clarification on the practical ways to achieve excellent pet dental hygiene.
