Let’s Go Fido! runs Dream Puppy courses regularly throughout the year at Balmain Vet Hospital. Balmain Vet Hospital is located at 77 Victoria Rd, Rozelle.

Congratulations on your new puppy!

Our Puppy classes start before your puppy is fully vaccinated.

Why? Because this is the critical time for us to deposit positive memories. Your puppies will be safe and healthy in this environment, mixing with other puppies of the same age and development. Our courses run for 4 weeks, 1 hour each week, and cost $225

At this point, Our puppy classes will return online when NSW hits the 70% vaccination mark. Post lockdown we foresee one fully vaccinated  adult can accompany their pup to class

If your puppy is older than 14 weeks, please can we advise that you join our fabulous Adolescent Life skills program. Why? Your puppy will soon be vaccinated and out in the park. which will put the other younger puppies in class at risk. So please if your puppy is older than 14 weeks  check out our Adolescent Life Skills  Program

What happens after the Dream Puppy Course?

Training a dog to be your companion or your families companion is not a four-week course ,it 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 some engaging courses to keep you going through your pups adolescence.  The Let’s Go Fido! Life Skills program 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.
