Puppy classes

Welcome to Pups4Fun Puppy Classes, held at our training venues in Weston Creek and Belconnen. Our team are dedicated to providing top-notch training and socialization for your furry companion.

Our classes are conducted by a team of socialization experts who have extensive experience in managing play and dog interactions. We believe in empowering both you and your puppy by teaching effective training techniques and fostering confidence and social skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Puppy classes not only provide valuable training opportunities but also allow you and your pup to explore new environments, meet new people, and practice skills in different settings.

Our four-week puppy classes cover a comprehensive curriculum, including socialization, confidence building, loose leash walking, basic obedience, and addressing common behavior issues. Classes are scheduled for one hour. During this time, there will be dedicated socialization sessions for the puppies, opportunities for you to ask questions, and the chance to engage in additional activities such as using the slat mill and playing on the equipment.

To ensure personalized attention, each puppy class is led by two instructors who can provide one-on-one guidance and support for you and your puppy. Our training takes place in both indoor and outdoor areas, allowing for a well-rounded training experience. It is important for your puppy to get accustomed to training at night and in various weather conditions (where safe) to build confidence. During winter, we recommend bundling up so that you and your pup can prepare for normal life experiences.

Our puppy classes are specifically designed for puppies aged 8 to 20 weeks, a critical period for their development and socialization. By joining Pups4Fun Puppy Classes, you are providing your puppy with essential skills, building their confidence, and setting them up for a lifetime of success.

You will also receive a free puppy daycare voucher to leap ahead in your socialisation and confidence building activities.  Valid on Mondays and Fridays until they are 20wks of age, this fun day out will give your pup the best social experience.

Don’t miss this opportunity to embark on an exciting journey of learning and socialization with your puppy. Enroll in our Pups4Fun Puppy Classes today and give your furry friend the best start in life.

Puppy Class FAQ's

It is important for puppies to start safely socialising outside the home as soon as they are eight days past their first vaccination.  Puppies have a critical learning period of 6-16 weeks where they can do up to 80% of their learning about the environment, other dogs and people.  There are lots of way to safely socialise your puppy without locking them up at home.  The risk of having an unsocialised and fearful older dog is generally a lot higher than the risk of virus or disease.

We recommend starting puppy classes as soon as you get your puppy, as long as they are eight days past their first vaccination.

Puppies can attend puppy class as long as they are eight days past their first vaccination.  Puppy class is designed for dogs aged 8-20 weeks.  If you puppy is older than 20 weeks, they can attend our Adolescent Classes.

Puppies can start attending class eight days after their first C3 vaccination. Prior to each class we clean with a virucidal disinfectant that kills the dangerous viruses that are of concern to puppies.  We ask that you also bring a mat for your puppy if you are concerned.

Bookings can be made online via the Check Availability and Book button.  Choose your location and check availability, then Book Now.  You will need to enter some information about yourself and your puppy, then pay via the invoice generated.  Your class will not be confirmed until payment is made.

Unfortunately we generally can’t reschedule classes due to illness or inattendance as most of our classes are fully booked.  We can however send you video links for all the exercises completed in the week you miss.

We have the vouchers on your file so you won’t need a physical voucher.  You can either book online and pop in the notes that you would like to use the voucher, or just email or call us and we will book it in for you.  You can combine your puppy wash with daycare (Southside only).  The pups are taken for a bath in the afternoon so they are clean and ready for pickup.

All of our puppy trainers work day to day with dogs, or have experience and qualifications working with dogs….or both!  Our team complete an extensive in house puppy class instructors training module, as well as many hours of hands on training and mentoring.  Many of our trainers also hold other qualifications including the Cert III in Dog Training and Behaviour, or Cert III in Animal Care.

Pups4Fun puppy classes will cover how to start training your puppy in basic life skills such as loose lead walking, sit and drop and beginning impulse control.  We also do socialisation activities, confidence building and desensitisation to objects.
