Puppy Classes 

Brookfield Veterinary Practice runs Puppy School a 4- week course covering socialisation and basic training cues.

Is my puppy eligible?

  • Is your puppy aged between 12 weeks and 6 months? 
  • Has your puppy received their 1st Vaccination?
  • Is your puppy registered at Brookfield Vets?

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

Over the 4 weeks we will help your puppy socialise with other dogs and people and learn basic cues such as 

  • Loose lead walking 
  • Sit 
  • Down 
  • Recall 

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 are experiencing including: 

  • Socialising

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

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 £40 for the 4 weeks. 

How do I book?

Places are limited to a maximum of 5 puppies with one handler able to attend per puppy. Just contact the surgery for more information and to book a place.
