MOORABBIN OBEDIENCE DOG CLUB
The primary purpose of Prepuppy class is socialisation at an early age with other dogs and other people and to introduce good lead control without stress. Its purpose is also to familiarise your dog with commands that will make both your lives more enjoyable. Prepuppy class is a must for any owner wanting a well behaved, sociable dog. These classes are designed for puppies between the ages of 8 and 12 weeks, as it is much easier to teach your puppy correctly from the start rather than having to correct bad behaviour later. When you first bring your puppy home he/she is going through a very important and critical learning period in their lives. Habits and behaviours that you allow now will be with your puppy for the rest of their lives. If you can start your puppy off on the right track now you will have less problems later. Each year thousands of dogs are destroyed or end up in pounds and animal shelters (and are eventually euthanised) due to behavioural problems developed later in life. Prepuppy class provides a safe environment for your puppy to socialise and classes are kept small so time can be spent with each puppy and their owners.
