Puppy Parties at The Veterinary Centre
The most influential time of life for a puppy is between
8-16 weeks of age . During this time they very quickly
pick up on good and bad learning experiences. Unfortunately,
in the UK thousands of dogs every year aren't given
the opportunity to learn during this critical time.
It is much easier to teach your puppy correctly from
the start rather than trying to reverse an undesired
learned behaviour later in life.
It is difficult to socialise a puppy at this important
age because they are too young to go into public areas
such as dog parks. Our puppy parties are held in a safe
environment and because the other puppies are of the
same age it is less intimidating for them than meeting
with adult dogs in unfamiliar surroundings. Our parties
are also for you to ask any questions that you
may have, and to learn preventative health care and
training tips from a qualified veterinary nurse. We
have two puppy parties a month.
After your new puppy has had his or her 1st vaccination
(usually done at 8 weeks), you will be invited to the
next available party.
