Let’s Go Fido! runs Dream Puppy courses regularly throughout the year at Balmain Vet Hospital.  There is no need to wait for your puppy to start puppy training, Let’s Go Fido!  runs an open enrolment for the Dream Puppy classes at Balmain Vets, which means you can start straight away.

This course starts and finishes before your puppy is fully vaccinated. By starting early, (puppies start between 8-14 weeks).

We teach our puppies acceptable social etiquette in a fun and friendly environment. Your pup will get to meet other puppies of the same age and learn how to behave appropriately around animals in a calm, respectful and friendly manner.  It is vital that you continue to develop your puppy’s socials skills that have been initiated by their littermates and first human family.

The course goals are to

  • Increase the bond between you and your puppy.
  • Enable  owners to interpret their puppy’s body language
  • Equip owners to manage appropriate play and interactions
  • Equip owners to toilet train their puppy
  • Understand that behaviour is a response to the situation
  • Teach skills ( Name, come, sit, drop, stay, to settle, to love handling and grooming) using positive reinforcement.

During the classes, we discuss many common puppy problems such as toilet training and suggest techniques and solutions. The training isn’t just for your puppy!

With Christmas close approaching Please use our contact page to ask about availability 

Once you are enrolled we will send you a series of videos to watch before class. These cover,  how to teach your puppy its name, how dogs learn, basic needs, motivation, house training, biting, jumping and problem-solving.

The Dream Puppy practical classes are held on Tuesdays at  6.30-7.30pm and  7.45-8.45pm and on Thursdays at 6.30pm or 7.45pm for an hour

What happens after the Dream Puppy Course?

Training a dog to be your companion or your families companion is not a four-week course or an eight-week course is a commitment to training until your puppy has finished developing, which for most dogs is 2 years of age.  So Let’s Go Fido! have developed courses for each developmental stage.

The next stage for your puppy would be learning to cope with life outside your home, now they are fully vaccinated.  The Let’s Go Fido! Walk & Train course instills good manners such as waiting at gates, learning to settle anywhere, sitting for guests, walking calmly with you on the lead, coming when called.

The Let’s Go Fido! Walk & Train course courses run for 5 weeks and are held locally in Hunters Hill to ensure you and your puppy continue to learn and have fun together.  Click on the classes on the right for information on how to enrol and answer any questions you may have.
