Why Perth Puppy Preschool

Puppies between the ages of 6 to 16 weeks are in a very important socialisation window. During this time every experience they have with you and the outside world makes a lasting impression and can shape the type of dog they grow into. Therefore, it is very important to have many positive experiences to show your puppy that the world is a great place to be in!

Our Perth puppy preschool offers a safe environment for puppies to socialise with people and other puppies as well as build a positive association with the vet! Puppies this age are not considered fully vaccinated which can make socialisation difficult, this is why puppy preschool is so important as it facilitates excellent socialisation without putting your pup at risk.

Sadly each year many dogs end up in shelters due to behavioural and socialisation issues which is often due to the lack of socialisation during this important window.
