Congratulations on your fabulous new puppy. We are here to help you get the best start and have a lot of fun on the way.

Our aims are

  • to ensure your pup gets great socialisation at this time
  • to help you manage this phase of toilet training
  • to help you identify when your pup is getting over-aroused and how to manage them before they become bitey
  • to create a strong bond between you, basing this bond on clear communication, positive reinforcement, and your ability to read your pup’s body language so setting them up for success.



Our FACE TO FACE  classes are held at Willoughby Vets, with ONE  adults per puppy allowed to attend class.

We will teach, demonstrate, observe and most importantly give feedback on your training, so all the pups continue to progress.

The skills are practical, fun, and effective in setting your pup up for success now and in the future

The course runs for 5 weeks, 1 hour each week and cost $265

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. Please check it out our Adolescent Program[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
