Frequently asked questions

My puppy doesn't get along well with other dogs. Will my dog still be suitable?

More than likely, yes. This course provides a safe, controlled environment to help puppys learn the basic socialization skill they need to co-exist with other dogs. All dog interaction is closely supervised and managed by James so every dog has the best possible experience.

What days and times are the courses run?

Puppy classes are run in the evenings on Mondays and Thursday. All classes are held 6:30pm until 7:30pm/8:00pm To view all upcoming course dates click HERE *Please check individual course dates and times and they may vary.

Does my dog have to be up to date with their vaccinations?

Yes. It is very important that we provide a safe environment for all the other dogs so up-to-date vaccinations are a must.

What do I need to bring?

You will need to bring a suitable collar and lead. Everything else is provided.

Do I need to pay prior to the commencement of the course?

On enrolment you will need to pay at least a $50 to secure your position on the course. You also have the option to pay for the course in full. During the enrolment process you will be prompted to choose your preffered payment and pay online via our secure checkout (VISA, MASTERCARD, DEBIT). If you`ve paid a deposit. the balance will be due at the first class.

What happens if I don't make a session scheduled on a course?

If you are unable to attend a session during your course for whatever reason, you will be able to attend that same session on another course at no extra cost.

Can I bring more than one puppy?

Yes, you can bring a maximum of two puppies. I have volunteers at each course that can assist with handling if required. It is often beneficial for two puppys of the same family to go through the course together. *Please note: You must fill out a seperate enrolment form for each puppy. The full course fee of $220 will apply to each puppy.

My puppy is very naughty. Is it possible for a puppy to be TOO naughty for this course?

No. These courses are specifically designed to accommodate dogs with a variety of behavioural personalities. Never be embarrassed and think that your dog will just make you look bad. No dog that comes on the course is perfect and that is why they are there, to learn! Everybody is expected to support one another as we all have the same goal which is to teach our dog's how to behave.

Are there any age limits for this course?

All puppies 12-18 weeks are accepted into the course. Puppies are required to be up to date with their vaccinations and cleared for socialisation by your vet. Puppies older than 18 weeks are recommended to enrol in my open age small breed courses by clicking HERE

Where are the courses held?

All puppy classes are held at Pawpals Bassendean Pawpals DayCare Unit 4, 329 Collier Road Bassendean WA 6054

How much does the course cost?

The total cost for the course is $220 (GST inclusive). A $50 deposit is requierd on enrolment to secure your position on the course. *Note: It is very important to attend ALL 4 classes that are part of the course.

My puppy is only young. Will they be okay with older dogs?

All puppy's interactions with other dogs on the course is carefully monitored by James, your course trainer. Dog socialization is an important part of puppyhood. Older dogs will teach your puppy proper social etiquette which will empower them with the appropriate social skills to handle future social situations. Remember: All dog interaction is done under the watchful eye of your course trainer and dog expert, James Fruze.

Do you do one on one training aswell?

Yes. If you feel that your dog may be suited to one on one training, please fill out a contact form by clicking HERE

Is the training area fully enclosed and safe for my dog?

Yes. The training area is fully enclosed, steralised and indoors.

Do I get recognition for completing the course?

Yes of course. All graduates recive a certificate of completion.

Does a course like this work?

This course has shown incredible results for the dogs that have completed it. The owners learn Leadership and the dogs learn invaluable social skills that will give them the confidence to deal with day to day situations they will encounter. This course will improve the quality of life for all breeds of puppies.

My puppy is very timid and/or fearful, should I still bring them?

The short answer is yes. A fearful puppy will never overcome their fears if we allow them to keep avoiding scary situations. This course provides puppy’s that are generally fearful an opportunity to overcome their fears in a safe and controlled environment at a pace that is comfortable for them whilst still encouraging them to build their confidence. If your puppy has a habit of 'nipping' or 'snapping' at dogs or people don't let this stop you from enrolling either. This is just their way of telling us that they do not like what is happening. As you will learn on the course there are multiple ways to avoid that behaviour by providing the right leadership, so your puppy trusts you in any situation. This course has worked wonders for fearful puppy’s and they are now living more happy, comfortable lives.

Does my puppy have to be desexed?

No they do not.
