We are committed to helping your puppy enjoy their puppy school experience. We are positive reinforcement trainers meaning we teach gentle, reward based methods that will get great results and help you bond with your puppy even more. We do not use any dominance, fear or punishment techniques.
Classes are held in our spacious reception area on a disinfected floor surface, providing a safe space for puppies to learn and socialise before they are fully vaccinated. Attending puppy school at the vets is a great opportunity to help your puppy feel confident and excited about trips to the vet!
Our trainers are veterinary professionals and can give you advice on nutrition and health concerns during your class. Our practice offers free puppy health checks to all new puppies.
Dr Imogen has a canine behaviour certificate from the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and our practice has a keen interest in behaviour medicine.
Vaccination and Age Requirements
All puppies are required to have had at least one C3 vaccination before attending their first class. If their last vaccination was not performed at our practice we will need to view their vaccination certificate when booking them in.
All puppies should be 8-12 weeks old at the first class to ensure puppies are a good match for each other. Please call us to discuss options for puppies over 12 weeks old.
