Goodog Puppy Preschool socialisation and training on the Northern Beaches is for puppies starting between 8 – 14 weeks.

NSW Health Order info
The health order and Scout Halls allow indoor training again from 20th June. Therefore, this class is in-person at Balgowlah Scout Hall. Class numbers are still reduced to allow for distancing, so please try to attend in-person with only 3 humans per pup. There may be room for some clients to bring extra guests, we will try and rotate this where possible. If the NSW order restricts indoor activities again, this class will move online.

  • Saturdays 1:30pm
  • $210
  • 4 weeks one hour per week
  • Puppies should start class as early as possible between 8-14 weeks.

Our puppy pre school is designed for puppies starting between 8 and 14 weeks. We teach all the basics (name, sit, lie down, come when called, high five, roll over) and much more and we explain how to properly socialise your puppy, how to house train and trouble shooting for mouthing, home alone, children and dogs and more.

We also believe puppy to puppy interaction is extremely important for a well adjusted dog. At Goodog Puppy Preschool socialisation and training we teach the puppies to interact appropriately with other dogs in our carefully managed and moderated play session.
