Pre school puppy group- 8-16 weeks
cost £6 per pup
These sessions are aimed to give your puppy the best possible start. Often puppy classes will start from 12 weeks when they have had their full vaccinations. Unfortunately they can miss the critical time for socilisation and learning essential skills.
These groups start from when they have had their first vaccination to enable learning to start as early a possible. There is no training involved but pups get a chance to explore different sounds, smells, textures, other people and dogs.
Held on Tuesdays at 530pm.
