Start Early to Start Right

Raising a puppy is one of the most joyous and challenging experiences of your life. Puppies need constant play, tummy rubs, family time, lots of exploration time, adequate confinement time, sleep, and so much more. Puppies have different needs depending on their age, and even if those intense first few weeks things may ease off, suddenly behaviours like puppy biting and jumping start to surface. Trying to see life from your puppy’s perspective can be hard when he's just chewed your favorite pair of shoes!  


The first three months of your puppy’s life are just too important to squander. Whether you just need a little guidance or you're looking for an all-inclusive package to cover all the bases, CleverPawz, Puppy Training, Hobart has a program to meet your needs.

puppy Socialisation

Cleverpawz3-107 Y.jpg

a safe place to socialise

Socialisation is critical for your puppy’s ability to cope as an adult dog and without it, can lead to lifelong deficits.  Don’t miss your puppy’s socialisation window (up to 16 weeks) when they are most receptive to new and novel experiences.  

Each 45-minute session is held in a supervised, off-leash area.  Play dates may also be suitable for older, small puppies that would also benefit from socialisation. Please get in touch to determine suitability.

Single session: $25
Package of 5: $100

*FREE with enrollment in
