With Bronnie & Jess

Welcome to Puppy School at The Foreshore Vet

Owning a new puppy can be overwhelming and it's important to give your new puppy the best chance to succeed in their new home. Whether your family is big or small, a young dog must learn social skills and manners. Understanding their position in the family hierarchy is critical to their health, wellbeing and quality of life.

Bronnie and Jess just love puppies. When they aren't looking after your pets in hospital, Both Bronnie and Jess run four-week Puppy School training courses here at
The Foreshore Vet. They are passionate about teaching new owners and their puppies how to coexist and create a loving
environment at home.

Bringing your new puppy to our Puppy School is an excellent way to teach them that the vet is a positive place where fun things happen!

Other benefits include: socialisation skills, basic commands for good manners, practical commands which can promote safety and ease of handling in day-to-day situations.
