Puppy Playgroups

Is your puppy between 9 and 14 weeks of age? For a learning experience you’ll both enjoy, come to our puppy classes held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings from 7.00pm, in our dedicated Puppy Room. To reserve your place, please contact the surgery on (01553) 771457. We recommend Puppy Group for all our puppies.

Puppy Playgroup offers your puppy the essential social contact he or she needs to develop into a well balanced dog. It also offers you guidance for early training. The critical age for socialisation is 3-13 weeks and we recommend that you come on four consecutive weeks, during which time your puppy will have the chance to meet and play with other puppies and their owners. Our course covers puppy healthcare and management, early training (including Clicker training), plus suitable toys and games. We will show you how to prevent bad behaviour in later life, and you will also have the chance to meet other people with similar interests. Other members of the family are also most welcome.  Please click here for our Puppy Playgroup terms and conditions

If you’ve attended our Puppy Playgroups, we would love to hear about your puppy’s playgroup experience.

Please take a few moments to complete this short survey, so we can continue to improve our service. Please be assured that we will not pass on your details to any other company for their marketing purposes.  (All fields marked * are required).  By completing this survey, you are entering your puppy into our Puppy of the Month competition with a chance for him or her to be featured on our Facebook page and website blog.
