Give your puppy the best start

Best Friends Puppy Pre-School is a great way to get your puppy on the right track to becoming a happy and well-adjusted member of your family.

Between eight and sixteen weeks of age, puppies develop very quickly - this is the perfect time for them to learn about people, other dogs and the rest of the world. Puppy Pre-School is designed to take advantage of this learning period in a supervised environment that is clean and safe for young puppies.

The Best Friends Puppy Pre-School service is a fun and interactive five-week training course that covers puppy behaviours, diet, health, grooming, exercise and play, with an emphasis on socialisation, command training, health and care. Our aim is to teach you positive ways to train your puppy in basic skills such as ‘sit’, ‘drop’, ‘stay’, and how to walk well on a lead, but also how to control your puppy’s not so desirable behaviours like toileting inside, biting, mouthing and separation anxiety.

Puppy Pre-School instructors can help support you in raising your pup by providing positive early play experiences and offering timely advice. Training courses include expert guidance from our groomers and the experts at Our Vet™, as well as additional value offers to reinforce learning.


Puppy Pre-School is just $99 for five weeks. Classes run during the week and throughout the day on weekends. Your puppy must be 8-16 weeks old and have had at least one recent vaccination before they start classes.
