Riverside Veterinary Clinic

PAWsitive Puppy School 

Our puppy classes are held every Saturday at 6.30am at La Lucia Vet. The course consists of 6 week classes where puppies are taught the basic commands such as: sit, down, stay, wait, leave and walking on a lead. Puppies also get to socialize with other puppies of different sizes, ages and temperaments.

Socialization helps you train your young dog to handle new experiences and challenges with acceptable, appropriate behaviour. An unsocialized dog is unlikely to cope well with changes in his environment or situation, making him difficult to handle for his owner, veterinarian, groomer, pet sitter, and any visitors to the dog’s home.

Dogs are social creatures. Your pup needs interaction -- with you, other people and other animals, beginning very early in life.

All training techniques that are used are kind, fair, reward and correction based. Classes are designed to be fun and rewarding for both dog and owner. The classes are kept to a minimum to provide individual tuition and a relaxed environment.
