We understand that owning a puppy is both a delight and a challenge. To help you through the tricky times we have puppy playschool and puppy one-to-ones.
Puppy Playschool is a place for you and your puppy to make new friends whilst teaching your puppy essential life skills. It is in the form of 6 week course held at 10am on Saturday morning in the Westward Community Centre in Cefn Glas. The course is set so that you start on week one and finish on week 6 and stick with the same people throughout, for this reason it is not possible to start part way through.
You can register for the next available course by following the link below. Once you have signed up please join the SWDTA puppy playschool facebook group to keep in touch, arrange play dates and ask questions you can find the group here.
