Goodog Puppy Preschool Balgowlah is for socialisation and training and puppies starting between 8 –14 weeks.

Goodog Puppy Preschool Balgowlah

  • The class:
    • Class is every Saturday at either 1:30pm, or 2:40pm in Balgowlah
    • This class is rolling every 4 weeks and puppies can join each Saturday – where available.
    • 5 lessons: 4 in-person lessons, one hour per week. 1 at home tutorial lesson (28mins) to complete in your own time. More than 1 hour is too tiring for pups and they lose interest.
    • You receive a class recap and homework email each week to continue training at home between classes.
    • Goodog supplies treats and chews, however please bring your own if your puppy has a sensitive stomach.
  • Prerequisites:
    • Puppies require their 1st vaccination to start class (classes are indoors).
    • Puppies can start preschool sometime between 8-14 weeks. If your puppy is already over 14 weeks of age, book into a Teenage class.
  • There are no make-up classes so please attend your scheduled class.
  • Check Our Next Classes for all start dates.
Goodog Puppy Preschool aims for happy dogs and happy owners and to set you up for a fun, ‘almost’ stress free puppyhood and a successful life together.
The main aim of our classes are socialisation and training.
Socialisation: We aim for a well socialised puppy who interacts with other people, children and dogs in an appropriate and confident way and are one of the few classes providing carefully moderated off-leash interaction and play for puppies.
Training: We cover house training, mouthing/chewing, safe interaction with children, appropriate play with other puppies, jumping, digging, barking and any other issue/question you might have. After the course your puppy will sit, lie down, come when called and know a couple of tricks like roll over and high five.

A good Puppy Preschool is invaluable for a well adjusted dog and we’ll set you up for success from day one.

  • Goodog Puppy Preschool can sell-out approx. 3–5 weeks in advance so book early and as soon as you decide to welcome a new puppy.
  • If your pup is already over 14 weeks of age, book into a Teenage Dog training class
  • Goodog classes require a minimum number of confirmed bookings to go ahead, which is good for us but also good for puppy socialisation and interaction. If we feel the number won’t be reached we may combine the two classes on Saturday afternoon to one time (1:30pm or 2:40pm).
