Puppy Hour Courses



*** All group Puppy Hour and Puppy Plus courses postponed until further notice ***

Coming Soon * Online training courses:We will soon be introducing our ‘Puppies Online’ course, week 1 will launch on 15th May.  While our movements are still restricted, you can get started with your puppy from the comfort of your own home.  Contact us if you are interested.

We understand the importance of early learning and socialising for puppies.  These first weeks when your puppy is taken out into the world will help shape his/her future and attitude to life and the world he/she lives in.  We want to help you give your puppy the best start you can and give you advice on how to deal with the new situations you and the puppy will encounter.

Puppy Hour and Puppy Plus classes take outdoors to DogWise Rathangan.  Directions are available on the locations page.


NOTE - Group classes may not be suitable for dogs that are reactive towards other dogs or people.  Please contact us before booking to discuss this.


How does this differ from the Basic Level 1 Course?

A new course will start every few weeks to get you started with your new puppy.  You and your puppy will cover some basic obedience exercises with the addition of socialising with other people and dogs, dealing with play-biting, jumping up and getting your puppy used to certain distractions.
