Our fabulous and extremely experienced nurse Casey from Adore The Paw is running our puppy preschool. Casey has a Certificate IV in Attainment of Dog training, training with Delta Society, and a certificate in puppy preschoolers instructors course. She uses positive training methods to help educate you and your puppy and help create the best start to life.
Adult dogs are often the reflection of how they have been raised as a puppy, and by their life experiences along the way. Casey’s aim as a puppy trainer is to ensure that a puppy’s life has started in the most positive way possible through training, environmental conditioning, good routines, socialisation, and a safe home environment.
Puppies have a critical window for socialisation during 8 – 16 weeks and it is essential that puppy owners adequately socialise and train their puppy during this time. Everything a puppy experiences (or doesn’t experience) will contribute to shaping them as an adult dog and how they respond to their environment. Puppy pre-school helps to build confidence, focus, and a positive bond between puppies and their owners.

- Socialisation with people, puppies, sounds, environments
