Bringing your puppy home is one of the most exciting and rewarding times. It can also be exhausting and a little overwhelming. We are here to help you learn how to read your dog, build trust and guide you to become the best guardian you can be for your puppy.

We offer a five week course with each class running for 1 hour. The first class is puppy free where we cover theory, equipment and discuss what will be happening in the course and what to prepare.

Our venue is located in Penrith at Building E1, 1 Salmon Close, Penrith.  (corner of Castlereagh Road and Andrews Road)  The training room is equipped with seating and your own training zone to focus on working with your puppy.

  • Classes commence approximately every 3 weeks on both Saturday and Sundays.

  • We have up to five puppies in a class so we can give you personal attention.

  • The Baby Puppy School course total cost is $200. Prepayment is required to reserve your place in the class.

  • Please note there are no refunds for cancellations 7 days before the class start date. Booking cancellations will incur an administration fee and online charge of $50.

  • Important: Should a Covid-19 lockdown be in place at any time during the program, classes will be performed via a Zoom video session.

We aim to assist in enabling puppies to be exposed to new experiences in a positive manner. This program aims to provide some of these experiences in a safe and controlled environment.  Socialisation occurs when puppies are in the presence of people and other puppies. It is very important that puppies learn to be calm around other dogs. Therefore we aim to find a balance between exciting activities and calm, quiet activities.
