Puppy Classes 

Brookfield Veterinary Practice runs Puppy Club and Puppy School to help give your puppy the best start in life.

Puppy Club is a 3 week course for puppies.

Is my puppy eligible?

  • Is your puppy under 16 weeks of age? 
  • Has your puppy received their 1st Vaccination?
  • Is your puppy registered at Brookfield Vets?

If the answer to this is all of the above then YES! You and your puppy can get involved in all the fun. 

What is involved in the course? 

The idea of this course is to help your puppy socialise with other dogs, people and have a positive experience coming to the Vets. Owning a puppy can be very daunting, during the course you will receive lots of advice from a Registered Veterinary Nurse who will be on hand to answer any questions and help with any problems you’re  experiencing including; 

  • Socialising 
  • Play
  • Vaccinations 
  • Flea and worming treatment 
  • Diets 
  • Exercise
  • Health Checking 
  • Insurance
  • Puppy behaviour /training 
  • Laws associated with owning a dog 
  • Dogs body language 

At the end of the three weeks you will have a tour of the practice to look at the usually unseen parts of the practice including the operating theatre, laboratory and hospitalisation facilities. This gives you the opportunity to see the range of facilities this practice has to offer. 

What is puppy socialisation and why is it important? 

Puppies need to be exposed to a range of different experiences while they are young so that they are not afraid of them in later life. Puppies have a window where they tolerate these experiences better which closes 16-17 weeks of age. This is why it is important to expose your puppy to a range of different situations in a positive manner at a young age. Positive socialisation at a young age can prevent problems starting later in life. 

Socialisation can involve meeting;

  • Unfamiliar people of different ages 
  • Other puppies and dogs 
  • Other animals (Cats and Livestock) 
  • Travelling in the car 
  • Traffic
  • Towns 

How much does it cost?

The course costs £20 for the whole 3 weeks and you will receive relevant information sheets and goodies for your puppy.

Places are limited to a maximum of 6 puppies. Just contact the surgery we can get you booked on.

Is my Puppy eligible? 

  • Is your puppy aged between 10 weeks and 6 months? 
  • Has your puppy received their 1st vaccination? 
  • Is your puppy registered at Brookfield Vets?
