Puppy Preschool

Puppy Preschool classes are running with a few changes in our Auckland stores, please see below.

As puppies are energetic and excitable it can be hard to maintain physical distancing, therefore we will be asking puppy owners to wear masks for the duration of the class. We will have masks available for those that do not have one. Please contact your local clinic or store to enquire.
