Why Eastside Veterinary Clinic for Puppy Pre-School?
At Eastside Vet, we have a deep appreciation for the unique family orientated bond that exists between people and their pets. Our team believes that one of the most important times for growing and nurturing this bond is during the first few months of puppy’s life. Therefore, we introduce to you our Puppy Pre-School Program, which uses fear-free and reward-based training methods.
Our Puppy Pre-School promotes early socialisation in a controlled, safe and relaxed environment. One of the most common causes of relinquishment of a dog is due to behaviour issues, as such we have designed this program to provide you with the essential tools to set your puppy up for success. Early socialisation will also allow your puppy to develop positive relationships with other puppies, people and also the clinic.
Our Class Focus
- Canine Body language and behaviour
- Positive experiences and socialisation

Who Is Our Program Designed For?
Our Puppy Pre-School program is designed for puppies during what is known as their “Sensitive Period” and is ideal for puppies between the ages of 8 and 14 weeks, who have begun their vaccination course. We welcome puppies of all shapes, sizes, and breeds, which helps replicates ‘real world’ situations.
When is Puppy Pre-School?
Puppy Pre-School is run on, either a Tuesday or Wednesday evening, from 6:00pm – 7:00pm, for a total of four weeks. Our classes have a maximum of four-five puppies per class. A small environment allows for more time for our instructors to focus on you and your puppy to learn it.
