Puppy Preschool at Tewantin Veterinary Surgery 

PuppyLife Skills holds Puppy Pre School Classes At Tewantin Veterinary Surgery

for puppies 8 to 16 weeks.

Classes are Force Free, Positive Reinforcement classes, where pups and their parents are happy and open to learning.


Puppy's Parents learn how to reward and reinforce the behaviours they want, to ignore the behaviours they don't want and how to manage the behaviours that cannot be ignored.

You will learn to read your puppy's body language, which will tell you how your pup is feeling emotionally.

Using Positive Reinforcement 

Puppy is introduced to lifelong Foundation Behaviours: calmly laying on their mat and being able to focus on you amidst  class distractions. Nose touches.

Loose lead walking, the all important recall.

You and puppy will learn to be a team, whilst learning to engage in husbandry techniques together.

Puppy will enjoy short play sessions with other puppies.


The classes are 1 hour in duration over 6 weeks , with the first class being without puppy. 

Next class commences Tuesday 29/01/2019

Please contact me for class details and cost.

Home Schooling / Behaviour Assessment + Solutions

Home Schooling is available for puppies whose people are not able to attend classes, or whose pet is not suitable for a class environment. Both Puppy Pre School and Manners classes are available.

Many dogs develop behavioural problems as they mature, such as anxiety, barking, separation anxiety, fear and/or reactivity toward other dogs and people.


Behaviour assessment and solutions are offered, with referral to a qualified Behaviour Vet who have their Membership in Veterinary Behaviour (MANZVC) if required.
