The optimum period for puppies to learn social skills is between 4-16 weeks of age. During this time they should be exposed to as many new sights, sounds and life situations to help stop phobias before they start.


Our socialisation classes provide an oppurtunity for your puppy to meet other puppies in a controlled environment and learn how to play and interact with each other. As well as meeting new people and perhaps learning a few new tricks!


By enjoying puppy pre-school in our practice, your puppy will grow to associate the practice as a poistive place to be. This will make everyones life alot easier later in life when they need to visit us for vaccinations or treatments. We try to make sure your puppies visit to our practice is as good experience as possible.


If you would like to book your puppy onto one of our puppy pre-schools, please contact our reception staff on 01733 893990 or email us at
