The Walmer Vet Puppy School is a puppy socializing class where your puppy will learn to socialize with other dogs and people outside your home. The owners will get pointers on how to train their puppies, learn puppy behaviour patterns, get nutritional advice and learn about general puppy care.
The puppy classes are for free, very beneficial and loads of fun!
Walmer Veterinary Hospital, 106 Main Rd, Walmer PE
DURATION OF COURSE:
This is a 4 week course that consists of an hour lesson, once a week.
19h00 - 20h00
Puppies between the ages of 7 - 12 weeks
Your puppy should have received at least 2 of his/her puppy vaccinations. In the case of puppies which only had one vaccination, we recommend a Parvo booster vaccination (Primodog) before joining the class.
Please feel free to give us a call and chat to us about the vaccinations if you are not sure.
WHY THIS AGE?:
This is a puppy's main socialization phase. During this time he/she will learn how to communicate with other dogs outside your home. This behaviour is mostly learnt through play.
Any breed of dog is welcome; pure, cross, small, large...
There is no charge for the 4 week course. We do howevever request that puppy owners commit to the full 4 week course as there is only a limited number of puppies we can take per class.
TYPE OF COURSE:
This is a puppy socializing course. We focus on your puppy to help him/her learn to socialize through play, while having fun. The puppies learn the body language of other puppies which will help them throughout their lives. We also teach the owner how to read the puppy's body language so that you can better understand what your puppy is trying to tell you. This makes for a better relationship and respect between you and your puppy.
Your puppy will also learn how to sit and lie down. We do an introduction on how to walk your puppy on a lead and how to recall your puppy.
Please contact us on 041 - 581 4000 for further information or to book your puppy on our next course.
We hope to meet you and your new puppy soon!
