Puppy pre-school

Puppy scratching

Raising a pup is a wonderful, but sometimes challenging, experience. Puppy Pre-School can help!

Jordan Dog Training puppy pre-school will answer all of your questions and give you the tools and information you need to raise a happy, healthy and well-behaved puppy. Puppy training is a great opportunity to bond with your new puppy and learn how to establish rules to keep them safe. It also allows for early socialisation with other dogs and people in a safe and controlled environment. We offer a range of puppy training, puppy pre-school and dog training classes to meet your needs.

Puppy preschool in unprecedented times

With the threat of COVID-19 and impending lockdowns and business closures, we are now offering puppy preschools differently. We now have both Human free courses and also courses where One Human is allowed to attend with the puppy, please look at the heading of the course you are interested in to see if it human free or one human per puppy. All of our staff have undertaken COVID-19 infection control training and are taking appropriate measures to ensure that your puppy can still experience their essential puppy socialisation.

Puppies Only puppy preschool

  • These are clearly marked on the bookings page
  • Families are asked to drop off their puppy for a 30-45 minute socialisation session supervised by an experienced trainer using positive techniques to ensure puppies engage in appropriate play
  • Drop off and pick-up of your puppy will be one person at a time. Please wait in your car until you are approached by the trainer.
  • Please ensure your puppy is on a secure collar and lead. When approached, please have one person only exit your car with the puppy. The trainer will pick the puppy up off the ground so that appropriate social distancing is maintained
  • Appropriate sanitisation will occur between each human interaction
  • Fact sheets covering all of the topics normally discussed in class will be emailed home for you to read
  • Payment is to be made online so that cash is not being passed between humans

What our clients think of our Puppy Training...

Justin creates a friendly and relaxing environment in all of his classes. He delivers information clearly and professionally.

I have taken both of my dogs to his classes and would highly recommend them to anyone with a new puppy. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first dog or your tenth, the social aspect of the group is fantastic.

A special mention also goes to his willingness to help after hours. He was happy to field any questions I had regarding my new fur friend.
