At West Gosford Vet we offer puppies and their owners the best start for success in their relationship.


Our Puppy Preschool sessions will…

  • Help with early socialisation in your puppies key period of 8 – 16 weeks.

  • Our aim is to make dog training fun, for both your puppy and you their owners.

  • Teaching basic training techniques,  like teaching their name, sit, lie down, early recall, so how to come when called, as well as some tricks, like high five and roll over.

  • Other topics we cover include toilet training and also trouble shooting for mouthing, being home alone, children, other dogs.

  • Our class has puppy off lead time, puppy interaction is important for a well adjusted dog, so we will teach the puppies how to interact appropriately with a carefully managed play session, with just one other puppy.

The Classes …


  • Are a 4 week course

  • Run for 1 hour per week on Thursday's at 6.30pm

  • Have up to 6 puppies per class (currently 4 due to COVID)

  • Cost $160 for the 4 week course
