The Best Puppy Schools in Melbourne

The Best Puppy Schools in Melbourne

Getting a new puppy is arguably one of the most exciting and equally nerve wracking things (we know the feeling!). With lots of settling in to do for both your new pup and yourself, as a newly titled pawrent if you will, enrolling into puppy school is next on the list. It's the best way for your puppy to learn and socialise in a positive and safe environment during their first few months. Puppy school is also a great place for you, as a new dog owner, to learn the best ways to care for your furbaby and get advice. 

We know it can all get a bit overwhelming, so we've done the hard yards for you. Read on for our roundup of the best puppy schools based all around Melbourne so that you can find the perfect fit for you and your new furry companion.

Evervet offers puppy preschool classes at their clinic conveniently located in South Yarra.
