What does the Vets4Pets Puppy PreSchool aim to achieve?
The ages between 6 and 12 weeks are critical in puppy development. Puppies need exposure in a friendly environment to other animals, people and doggy socialisation. Through this stimulation they learn appropriate behaviour and are better to cope with life as adult dogs.
In these classes principles of basic puppy training are taught and practised, with an emphasis on fun and family involvement.
Enjoying Visits to the Vet
Through puppies enjoying their time at these classes we hope to make their future visits less traumatic for both dog and owner.
During pre-school classes topics relating to preventative dog health care will be covered.
